Adaptation of 'Y The Last Man' ordered to series at FX

In it, Yorick (Dunkirk's Barry Keoghan), the titular survivor of an apocalyptic event that wiped out all men (and males of every species), treads through a street littered with corpses, dressed in a poncho with a gas-mask on and his trusted Capuchin (and last male monkey), Ampersand, in tow.

FX's TV adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's Y: The Last Man has been picked up to series based off the network's previously- reported pilot. It helped Yorick hide his identity as he moved about the world - after all, every single man on the planet was supposed to be dead, so if someone saw him, that could cause quite a stir.

"Y: The Last Man is a towering achievement among graphic novel storytelling and it's been rewarding to work with this outstanding team", FX president of original programming Nick Grad said in an announcement. There is so much at play with ideas of gender and race that a woman of color has to be involved in the creative process in order to better translate the source material and avoid falling into harmful and problematic tropes. The cast also includes Amber Tamblyn, Imogen Poots, and Lashana Lynch. "Michael Green and Aïda Mashaka Croal have partnered with Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson to deliver a stunning new expression of this fascinating and timely story. Melina Matsoukas, who directed the pilot, did an incredible job bringing it to life with Diane Lane and this stellar cast". "We thank them for their trust - we thank FX for their support - and we thank the casting gods for letting us work with this incredible group of actors". Kind of a bummer to wait that long to get a look at it, but we're excited to learn FX is moving forward with this one, and are dying to see what it looks like in action (that photo above is our first look at the series, period, but isn't terribly dynamic).

Meet the President And First Lady's State of the Union Guests
For the most part, President Donald Trump's guests to Tuesday's State of the Union address are predictable. To be clear, bullying is a serious issue, and no child should have to go through it.

Michael Green will serve as the showrunner, with Vaughn as an executive producer.

Y: The Last Man is a 60-issue science fiction comic book series published beginning in 2002.
