The second season of Y: The last man it won’t happen and the episodes of the TV series available on Disney + will be the only ones and the last that we will see.
FX has in fact decided not to renew the dystopian show based on the comic book Y: The last man from Brian K. Vaughan.
FX cancels Y: The Last Man Who Won’t Have A Second Season
Thus, two weeks after the end of the first season, one of the apparently most interesting TV series of recent times aired in the USA on Hulu and arrived in Italy on Disney + via the Star label on 22 September.
The news, reported by Deadline, was accompanied by the disheartened statements via Twitter from the executive producer Eliza Clark and the actress Amber Tamblyn interpreter of Kimberly Cunningham in the series.
Clark shows all her disappointment with a decision that prevents an important story from being told:
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 been more involved in a story in my life, and there is still so much to tell… We don’t want it to end.

Echoing the wish expressed by Eliza Clark, Amber Tamblyn said she was hopeful that los how can somehow survive, sharing on a post the hashtag, never so apt, #YLivesOn:
Even though I am disappointed, I know this extraordinary sight that has so much to say will soon find a great new home. Looking forward to the next chapter. If you are with me, let the whole world know. #YLivesOn
#YTheLastMan will not get a second season on FX and while I’m disappointed, I know this extraordinary show that has so much to say, and that says it so well, will find a great new home soon. Looking forward to the next chapter.
If you’re with me, let the world know. #YLivesOn https://t.co/rpdmCNoUrj

What is Y: The Last Man talking about?
Based on the comic written by Brian Vaughan (Lost, Ex Machina, Pride of Baghdad) and drawn by Pia Guerra, the TV series tells of a massacre: almost half of the planet’s population disappears and the gears of society are jammed, leaving the women left with the task of collecting the pieces of civilization to prevent its total collapse. In a mysterious and unexpected way, however, the “gendercide”, as it is renamed, is not complete.
For some reason, two males are spared from death: a young man named Yorick Brown and his pet capuchin monkey, Ampersand.
Suddenly, this previously unknown boy of just over twenty becomes the most important person on the planet: the world hopes that Yorick is the key to unlocking the secret of the mysterious plague. For Yorick, however, the most important person on the planet is on the other side of the globe… and the boy has no intention of stopping at nothing to find her.
