Y: THE LAST MAN Ordered To Series At FX As First Official Image Is Released Online

It's been a long time coming, but Brian K. Vaughan's beloved comic series Y: The Last Man is finally on its way to the screen. FX has announced that the adaptation has officially been picked up to series.

We found out earlier tonight that the upcoming third season of Legion would be its last, but FX has announced that another beloved comic book adaptation has been ordered to series, which should soften the blow a little.

It's been a while since we heard anything about the planned small-screen take on Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's Y: The Last Man, but THR has now confirmed that the show has been picked up, and should premiere sometime in 2020. We also have the first official still, which features Yorick (presumably) walking the grim, post-outbreak streets along with his Capuchin monkey, Ampersand.

Yorick Brown will be played by Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk), who recently made a splash with his chilling performance in The Killing of a Sacred Deer. He'll be supported by Man of Steel's Diane Lane as Yorick's mother, Senator Jennifer Brown. In addition, Imogen Poots (Fright Night) will play Yorick's older sister Hero, and Captain Marvel actress Lashana Lynch is on board as fan-favourite character Agent 355.

"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. “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.”
