So the last time we checked in on FX on Hulu and EP & showrunner Eliza Clark's adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's comic book series Y: The Last Man, we were getting a look at what lies ahead for Yorick (Ben Schnetzer), Agent 355 (Ashley Romans), and Ampersand heading into this week's episode "Karen and Benji." This time around, we're getting a sneak preview that finds the three trying to stay one step ahead of pretty much the world while also attempting to find a geneticist who can answer the questions surrounding Yorick's mysterious ability to still be alive and breathing. And during a rare quiet moment, Yorick briefly explains how he acquired Ampersand before Yorick (and viewers) receive a few more pieces of the puzzle that is Agent 355's backstory.
Here's a look at the newest preview for the next episode of FX on Hulu's Y: The Last Man, followed by an overview of "Karen and Benji" and a look back at the series' promo that was released earlier this weekend:
Y: The Last Man Season 1 Episode 4 "Karen and Benji": On Jennifer's orders, Yorick and Agent 355 search for a geneticist who can unravel the mystery of how he survived. Meanwhile, Hero and Sam encounter a dangerous group of women. Written by Donnetta Lavinia Grays and directed by: Destiny Ekaragha.
Now here's the official trailer for FX on Hulu's Y: The Last Man, currently streaming on FX on Hulu:
