We finally have a release date for Y: The Last Man.
The series is set to premiere at FX on September 13, 2021. It is based on the comic series of the same name by Eisner Award winner Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra. It spanned over 60 issues from 2002 until 2008 and was published by Vertigo.
Y: The Last Man traverses a post-apocalyptic world in which a cataclysmic event decimates every mammal with a Y Chromosome but for one man and his pet monkey. The series follows the survivors in this new world as they struggle with their efforts to restore what was lost and the opportunity to build something better.

Eliza Clark serves as the showrunner. The cast includes: Ben Schnetzer, Diane Lane, Ashley Romans, Diana Bang, Olivia Thirlby, Juliana Canfield, Marin Ireland, Amber Tamblyn, Paul Gross and Elliot Fletcher. iO9 caught some footage earlier this week, but it was sadly taken down. Looks like we have to wait for FX’s official promo reel.
The series previously suffered a setback when star Barry Keoghan backed out from playing the lead role. He was since replaced with Warcraft‘s Ben Schnetzer as Yorick Brown. Diane Lane plays his mother, Senator Jennifer Brown, and Olivia Thirlby plays his sister Hero Brown.
Y: The Last Man premieres September 13, 2021.
