FX Loses Showrunners for ‘Y: The Last Man’ Adaptation

Series will move forward with current cast while network looks for replacement for Michael Green and Aida Mashaka Croal

FX is looking for new showrunners for its “Y: The Last Man” adaptation, as Michael Green and Aida Mashaka Croal have left over creative differences, the network confirmed Monday.

The series will keep its cast that includes Diane Lane, Amber Tamblyn, Barry Keoghan, Imogen Poots, Lashana Lynch, Juliana Canfield and Marin Ireland. The network is beginning the process of finding a new showrunner.

Based on the comic “Y: The Last Man” published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint and created by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, the series “traverses a post-apocalyptic world in which a cataclysmic event has decimated every male save for one lone human. The new world order of women will explore gender, race, class and survival.”

“Y: The Last Man” is a 60-issue science fiction comic book series which began publishing in 2002. It is the recipient of three Eisner Awards, and received the first Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story for “Y: The Last Man, Volume 10.”

Croal addressed the news on her twitter account Monday in a statement from her and Green. “We are grateful for everyone who came together to make our pilot and build the world of ‘Y’… We hoped to reward their talent and their trust not just with success but with a show that had something to say, in a time when things must be said. As ‘Y’ fans ourselves, we hope the future allows just that.”
