Disney+ has offered a first look at upcoming comic book adaptation Y: The Last Man, and confirmed that the opening three episodes of the eagerly awaited Sci-Fi drama will debut on Star September 22, with new episodes following every Wednesday.
Disney+ may be the home of Marvel, but Y: The Last Man is actually a DC property, by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, here produced by FX.
The comic book, first published in 2002, ran for 60 issues, during which time it received three Eisner Awards, and was nominated for the first Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story for Y: The Last Man, Volume 10.
From the studios behind Devs and Mrs. America, the story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world in which a cataclysmic event decimates every mammal with a Y chromosome, but for one cisgender man and his pet monkey.
The series follows the survivors in this new world as they struggle with their efforts ‘to restore what was lost and the opportunity to build something better.’
The ensemble cast features Diane Lane as Congresswoman Jennifer Brown, Ashley Romans as Agent 355, Ben Schnetzer as Yorick Brown, Olivia Thirlby as Hero Brown, Amber Tamblyn as Kimberly Campbell Cunningham, Marin Ireland as Nora Brady, Diana Bang as Dr. Allison Mann, Elliot Fletcher as Sam Jordan and Juliana Canfield as Beth Deville.
Developed for TV by Eliza Clark, who serves as showrunner and executive producer, all episodes of the debut season will be directed by women.
