The Last Man will not be renewed for a second season, according to the network. The series was seeking a new home after being dropped from FX’s schedule of entertainment on Hulu. It was not picked up, and it will not be returning to tell the rest of the narrative. Eliza Clark, the show’s creator, came to Twitter to convey the news to viewers who had hoped for at least one more season.
Clark praised the numerous followers who kept the optimism alive as they looked for a new host network in a touching statement. Working on the programme was “the most creative work atmosphere,” she said, adding that she was “very pleased with the job we produced.” She expressed her delight that the programme was given a chance in the first season, pointing out that many projects never get developed at all.
Finally, Clark expressed her delight at being able to adapt her favourite comic book into a TV programme and share the tales she loved. Finally, she refers to Y as “the one who got away” and assures her fans that she will continue to compose new works in the future.
Y: The Last Man was a series based on a comic book of the same name by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, as Clark indicated in her Tweet. The series was set in a post-apocalyptic world where all animals with a Y chromosome had been eradicated. When a guy called Yorick Brown (Ben Schnetzer) and his pet monkey, Ampersand, managed to escape the fallout, the mystery began to unfold. Yorick, now a sought-after commodity across the world, must determine who is a friend and who is a foe while struggling for survival. Olivia Thirlby, Ashley Romans, Amber Tamblyn, Elliot Fletcher, and Diane Lane featured with Schnetzer in the series.
The first season received mixed reviews from reviewers, and FX on Hulu decided to cancel it in October. Clark tweeted at the time, stating, “There is so much more left to tell.” It’s a letdown for fans who were looking forward to seeing what would happen in Season 2, which Clark teased in her most recent tweet, stating it will contain “new twists on some of the finest tales from the book (astronauts anyone?).”
While we are sorry to see Y: The Last Man end, we agree with Clark and are glad that the series had the first season. Check out Clark’s complete response to the show’s cancellation in the tweet below.
For those of you who have been asking me: we tried really hard to get another platform to pick up season 2 of Y. But sadly, it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. It is always incredibly difficult to move a show, and in recent years, it has only gotten harder. (thread)
