THE LAST MAN is officially dead when no other network or streaming service wanted it – GeekTyrant

A few months ago, we learned that FX canceled the series adaptation of the post-apocalyptic cartoon Y: The last man. The creator and showrunner Eliza Clark tried to find a new home for the series so they could continue it, but no other network or streaming service wanted to download it, so the series is officially dead.

The series is adapted from Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerrara‘s cartoon of the same name, and it follows the survivors of a catastrophic event that kills all animals on Earth with a Y chromosome except a cis-sexed man (Ben Schnetzer) and his monkey.

I’m not really surprised that the series was not filmed. I did not think the first season was particularly good, and apparently neither did any of the other networks or streaming services. Clark shared further Twitter:

“To those of you who have asked me: we’ve really tried to get another platform to download Season 2 of Y. But unfortunately it does not look like it’s going to happen. It’s always incredibly difficult to move a show, and in recent years it has only gotten harder. “

She went on to talk about her scrapped plans for season 2, saying: “I’ve always been pretty good at managing my expectations in a volatile business. But I’ll say this one hit me pretty hard. We had a lot more stories to tell. tell, and a kick-ass pitch to s2 that included new twists on some of the best stories from the book (astronauts anyone?). ”

In the cartoon, there are two other cisgender men aboard the International Space Station who survived. When Clark talked about his feelings in the show, Clark said, “Even though it does not end as we would have ended the series, I still think there are whole stories told and performances that are quite brave and exciting.”

The main role of the series also included Diane Lane, Ashley Romans, Olivia Thirlby, Juliana Canfield, Elliot Fletcher, Marine Ireland, Amber Tamblyn, and Diana Bang.

All 10 episodes of Y: The last man currently streaming on Hulu if you have not already seen it and you are curious.
