FX first picked up the rights to Y: The Last Man back in 2015 after a planned movie adaptation failed to materialise. Developed – at a snail’s pace – since by Michael Green and Aïda Mashaka Croal, the project received a series order just this February.
Green and Croal make the announcement on Twitter that they have exited the series over creative differences:
“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.
