FX greenlights Y: THE LAST MAN TV series

FX have formally greenlit a TV series based on the graphic novel series Y: The Last Man, co-created by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra.

FX have produced an internal pilot based on the comics and clearly decided it was good enough to move forward with a full first season, due to debut in 2020.

The TV series will just be called Y. Closely based on the graphic novels, it follows what happens when every male animal on the planet, including humans, drops dead without warning. The human race faces extinction...until it is discovered that one solitary man has survived. He becomes torn between different factions, some of whom want to kill him and others who want to use him to help repopulate the species.

The TV adaptation stars Diane Lane, Barry Keoghan, Lashana Lynch, Imogen Poots and Amber Tamblyn.
