Here’s a rather surprising turn of events, as FX on Hulu has decided not to move forward with its newest show Y: The Last Man. The adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra‘s Vertigo storyline was in development hell for quite some time. It finally was able to premiere this September with Eliza Clark as showrunner. Sadly, she took to Twitter to announce that the series will not move forward. However, she has pointed out that they are actively looking for a new home to keep the team that worked on the post-apocalypse series together.
Actress Amber Tamblyn also took to Twitter to share her hope on finding a new home for the series with the hashtag #YLivesOn.
The series cancellation also means it won’t be available for European Disney+ subscribers, as it was also made available through their Star branding. Sadly, we have no insight on why they moved on the show after its premiere episode, but they might’ve not gotten the numbers they were hoping for given the necessary budget to keep this series going.
Of course, when we talk about revivals, Netflix commonly becomes the first new home for most shows due to their history. Lucifer just recently managed to finish its run on the streaming service after getting cancelled by Fox after its third season ended. Of course, there are other options, but it’ll be interesting to see if there are developments due to the series’ overall reception by fans and viewers.
