Fans of the cult comic classic, Y: The Last Man may have thought they got some disheartening news this morning. Executive producers Aida Mashaka Croal and Michael Green posted this statement, a mere two months after the show was ordered to series:

Some outlets even went so far to say that Y: The Last Man was never going to make it to the screen. But have no fear! It turns out that the wording on that statement was a little bit confusing for everyone. Entertainment Weekly went out to get the story straight and here’s the real truth: Croal and Green are walking away from the project to pursue other work but the show is still on! Currently, FX is looking for another showrunner (or runners) to helm the show. So, yes, the show is still on, there’s just going to take a little longer to make it to our TV screens.


For those not familiar with the comics, here’s a quick run down. On July 17, 2002, every mammal with a Y chromosome suddenly all die, leaving two survivors: Yorick Brown and his Capuchin monkey, Ampersand. No one know why these two were spared from the death, but his mother, a Congresswoman, strives to protect him as a solution is found through travels around the world. In the show, Yorick’s mother will be played by actress Diane Lane. The original comic was written and drawn by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra.
