The show was in a decade-long development process before landing at FX for development back in 2015.

“We have learned that we will not be moving forward with FX on Hulu for Season 2 of Y: THE LAST MAN. I have never in my life been more committed to a story, and there is so much more left to tell,” Eliza said.

“Y: THE LAST MAN is about gender, about how oppressive systems inform identity. We had a gender diverse team of brilliant artists, led by women at almost every corner of our production. Producers, writers, directors, cinematographers, production design, costume design, stunt coordination, and more,” she continued.

“It is the most collaborative, creatively fulfilling, and beautiful thing I have ever been a part of. We don’t want it to end. FX has been an amazing partner. We have loved working with them, and we’re sad YTLM is not going forward at FX on Hulu. But we know that someone else is going to be very lucky to have this team and this story. I have ever experienced the remarkable solidarity of this many talented people. We are committed to finding Y its next home. #YLivesOn”

Here’s a plot summary: “Traverse a post-apocalyptic world in which a cataclysmic event decimates every mammal with a Y chromosome except one cisgender man and his pet monkey. Survivors struggle to restore what was lost and the opportunity to build something better.”

In other streaming news, Netflix just cancelled these previously renewed shows.
