After countless starts, stops, delays, and reimaginings over the years, the TV adaptation of Vertigo’s Y: The Last Man has finally been given a series premiere date, with the show set to debut on Monday, September 10th exclusively on FX on Hulu.
One of the more popular comic series of the ’00s from writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Pia Guerra, reports of an adaptation have circled for more than a decade, only for those reports failing to gain any momentum. Even after production on this series started, creative shifts took place that included the replacement of showrunners and even the titular role.
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. 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.
