With the rights reverting back to the original creators last year , the general tone of that news was to not expect anything to happen with Y: The Last Man anytime soon. Now that seems to be changing as the property is going into development for FX, which is where The Strain is currently being broadcast. A potential replacement for it, if it doesn’t get a fourth season pickup after season three next summer?
Y: The Last Man has Brad Simpson and Nina Jacobson involved as the developing producers while creator/writer Brian K. Vaughn will be involved as a producer and writer for it.
Plot concept: This is the saga of Yorick Brown—the only human survivor of a planet-wide plague that instantly kills every mammal possessing a Y chromosome. Accompanied by a mysterious government agent, a brilliant young geneticist and his pet monkey, Ampersand, Yorick travels the world in search of his lost love and the answer to why he’s the last man on earth.
