With only a little more than a month to go until FX on Hulu and executive producer & showrunner Eliza Clark's (Animal Kingdom, The Killing) adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's comic book series Y: The Last Man hits streaming screens, viewers are getting their first extended look at the series with the release of the official trailer. When a global catastrophe wipes out every mammal with a Y chromosome, Ben Schnetzer's cisgender man Yorick Brown (with sidekick monkey Ampersand) finds himself the lone survivor, looking for answers and for what the future holds- a future with where some see Yorick as the key to humanity's hope while others see him as a threat to be eliminated at all costs.
Along with Yorick, viewers also get a chance to meet Diane Lane's Congresswoman Jennifer Brown, Ashley Romans' Agent 355, Amber Tamblyn's Kimberly Cunningham, and more from the eagerly-anticipated series. For a look at how the world ends and how a new world begins with a chance to build something better, check out the official trailer for FX on Hulu's Y: The Last Man:- set to premiere on September 13:
