A total of sixty issues of the series were released by Vertigo and compiled in 10 paperback volumes . For the most part, J. G. Jones and Massimo Carnevale designed the series’ front and back covers. Three Eisner Awards were given to the series. On September 13th, 2021, FX on Hulu debuted an adaption as a television series.
Why Y The Last Man Season 2 Canceled?
Season 2 of Y: The Last Man has been canceled. Having been removed from Hulu‘s programming lineup by FX, the series was searching for a new home network. Due to lack of interest, it will not be returning for a follow-up narrative. Eliza Clark, the show’s creator, broke the news on Twitter to fans who were hoping for a second season.
Clark expressed his gratitude for the numerous supporters who kept the dream of finding a new host network alive in a poignant message. When asked about working on the show, she described it as “the finest creative work atmosphere,” and she was “immensely happy of the job we created.” A lot of shows never ever have a chance to begin production, and she expressed her joy at this show’s first season getting a chance to begin.
Clark ended the interview by expressing her delight at being able to make her favorite comic book into a television series and to share the stories she loved with the world.. Finally, she refers to Y as “the one that got away” and assures her fans that she will continue to compose new works.
Y: The Last Man was adapted from a comic book by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, as Clark indicated in her tweet. All mammals with Y-chromosomes were wiped off in the post-apocalyptic world of the series.
Yorick Brown (Ben Schnetzer) and Ampersand, his pet monkey, managed to survive the nuclear blast. Yorick, who has become a sought-after commodity across the world, is torn between deciding who is a friend and who is an adversary while still trying to stay alive. Olivia Thirlby, Ashley Romans, Amber Tamblyn, Elliot Fletcher, and Diane Lane also appeared in the series.
In October, FX yanked the first season of the show off Hulu after it received a mixed reception from reviewers. “There is so much more to tell” was Clark’s tweet at the time. It’s disappointing news for Season 2 fans who were looking forward to “new twists on some of the finest stories from the book (astronauts anyone?),” as Clark revealed in a recent tweet.
In spite of our sadness at the series’ end, we agree with Clark and are glad that a first season was given to it. You can read Clark’s tweet below to learn more about the discontinuation of the show.
