Y: The Last Man

FX’s adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s Y: The Last Man is actually moving forward, which is a development that’s even more unexpected than a mysterious plague wiping out every living thing on Earth with a Y chromosome (that’s what the comic is about). FX announced its Y: The Last Man show over a year ago, and now The Hollywood Reporter says that the network has hired Michael Green to act as showrunner and co-write the adaptation along with Vaughan. Green is currently a co-showrunner on Starz’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, and he has written for a bunch of geek-friendly stuff like Smallville, Heroes, Logan, and Blade Runner 2049.

The Hollywood Reporter story says Y: The Last Man is still being “eyed as an ongoing drama series,” which makes it sound like an actual premiere—assuming it gets made—is pretty far off.
