FX Networks has ordered a pilot for Y based on the acclaimed post-apocalyptic science fiction comic book series Y: The Last Man, it was announced by Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions. Melina Matsoukas will direct the pilot, which will be produced by FX Productions.

This is the saga of Yorick Brown — the only human survivor of a planet-wide plague that instantly kills every mammal possessing a Y chromosome. Accompanied by a mysterious government agent, a brilliant young geneticist and his pet monkey, Ampersand, Yorick travels the world in search of his lost love and the answer to why he’s the last man on earth.

Michael Green (American Gods, Blade Runner 2049, Logan) and Aida Mashaka Croal (Luke Cage, Turn) will serve as Co-Showrunners and will Executive Produce along with Matsoukas (Insecure, Master of None, Beyonce: Formation), Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson of Color Force (American Crime Story, Pose, The Hunger Games) and Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, Marvel’s Runaways, Saga), who have been working together to develop the series.

Based on the DC comic book series by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, there have been a few attempts to turn it into a TV show. Hopefully, this one makes it to the screen.

Y: The Last Man is a 60-issue science fiction comic book series published beginning in 2002. It received three Eisner Awards, and received the first Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story for Y: The Last Man, Volume 10.
