December 12th, 2020 by Marc Comments

It was starting to feel like it was never really going to happen, but at last, we have the Y The Last Man series coming!

At the Disney Investor Day 2020 FX officially announced the Y series was coming and I cannot wait!

The adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s iconic comic has ben stop/starting for years (check here) but it looks like this time it’s actually going to happen.

In the series the titular Y – Yorick Brown – will be played by Ben Schnetzer, Agent 355 will be played by Ashley Romans and Hero Brown will be played by Olivia Thirlby and filming is finally underway!

The series sees a “cataclysmic event” every mammal on earth except for Yorick and pet monkey ampersand (what an amazing name!)  and will also star Diane Lane as Yorick’s mother, Congresswoman Jennifer Brown, Amber Tamblyn as Kimberly Cunningham, Marin Ireland as Nora Brady, Diana Bang as Dr. Allison Mann; Elliot Fletcher as Sam Jordan; and Juliana Canfield as Beth Deville.

Y: The Last Man is set to arrive in 2021. Probably.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
