FX’s adaptation of Y: The Last Man has found its new showrunner: Eliza Clark (Extant, Animal Kingdom) has been tapped to oversee the series, two months after Michael Green (American Gods) and Aïda Mashaka Croal (Marvel’s Luke Cage) parted ways with the show due to creative differences.
The drama — simply titled Y — is based on Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s comic book series, and takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where a cataclysmic event has decimated every male except for one lone human named Yorick. In his travels, Yorick encounters a new-world order of women who explore gender, race, class and survival.
Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk) stars as Yorick, with Oscar nominee Diane Lane, Amber Tamblyn (Two and a Half Men), Imogen Poots (Roadies), Lashana Lynch (Still Star-Crossed), Juliana Canfield (Succession) and Marin Ireland (Sneaky Pete) rounding out the ensemble.
