Y: The Last Man Teaser: A "Manhunt" to Find the Answer Inside of Him
On Thursday, FX on Hulu and executive producer & showrunner Eliza Clark released the official trailer for their adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's comic book series Y: The Last Man that did an excellent job of presenting the epic size and scale of the series. 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.
But with the teaser "Manhunt", the spotlight gets much more focused as Diane Lane's Congresswoman Jennifer Brown assigns Ashley Romans' Agent 355 to keep Yorick alive at all costs. But not just because we're sure he's a swell guy but because he's a guy- and somewhere within this last remaining guy is the answer folks are willing to die (and kill) for:
