Y: THE LAST MAN - Here's The Real Reason Hulu's DC Adaptation Was So Abruptly Cancelled

Hulu recently announced that Y: The Last Man has been cancelled just 7 episodes into its first season. At the time, it was assumed that ratings were to blame, but that doesn't appear to be the case...

Alas, poor Yorick will not be returning for a second season.

In devastating news for a show that struggled to find its way to the screen for so many years, it was recently announced that FX/Hulu has cancelled Y: The Last Man just seven episodes in to its ten episode first season. At the time, we assumed low viewership was to blame, but as it turns out, those numbers had very little - if anything - to do with the network's decision.

According to THR, it all came down to FX execs not wanting to fork out to keep the cast on board after their options expired, with a decision on the future of the show needing to be made by October 15. Apparently, the delays resulting from the various showrunner and cast changes forced FX to extend options on the original and newer actors, and Y: TLM was simply deemed too costly (it would have set them back $3 million) to renew for a second run.

It's a huge shame, of course, but all may not be lost. Showrunner Eliza Clark is committed to finding a new home for the show, with HBO Max the most likely destination.
