After leaving patient fans waiting through years of development, Y: The Last Man is finally premiering. A new trailer reveals a fall release date for the anxiously awaited FX series. (Of note, Y: The Last Man will be exclusively streaming on FX on Hulu, as the brand’s streaming partner.)
Y: The Last Man graced our list of the most anticipated TV shows of 2021 and at long last, the series is finally arriving on September 13th. Eliza Clark will helm the series, which is adapted from the long-running science fiction comic book that’s captivated readers since 2002.
The ensemble cast features Diane Lane as Congresswoman Jennifer Brown, Ashley Romans as Agent 355, Ben Schnetzer as Yorick Brown, Olivia Thirlby as Hero Brown, Amber Tamblyn as Kimberly Cunningham, Marin Ireland as “Nora Brady,” Diana Bang as Dr. Allison Mann, Elliot Fletcher as Sam Jordan and Juliana Canfield as Beth Deville. According to a press release, “all episodes of the season will be directed by women and the production has a significant number of female department heads, including both DPs, the production designer, costume designer, casting director, editors, stunt coordinator and more.”
Y: The Last Man follows Yorick (Keoghan) and the remaining women left behind after an Event wipes out all with a Y-chromosome. Setting off with a dark secret and companionship in the form of a monkey, Y is determined to stay alive. The series will dive into the aftermath of the Event, and the survivors left grappling with the identities they clung to before.
Y: The Last Man premieres Monday, September 13, only on FX on Hulu. Check out the first trailer below:
