Y: The Last Man on Disney+ gets premiere date and trailer – everything we know so far
DC Vertigo’s Y: The Last Man, by Brian K Vaughan and Pia Guerra, is a regular fixture on “Best Comics Of All Time” lists, and is, as it happens, one of my favorite stories in the medium. Spinning out in a post-apocalyptic world where all mammals with a Y chromosome mysteriously die, a lone man named Yorick and his Capuchin monkey Ampersand explore the aftermath of the global androcide. It ran for sixty issues across ten paperback volumes, and is pretty beloved, making the upcoming Disney+ adaptation almost a guaranteed hit. Here’s everything we know so far about Disney+’s Y: The Last Man.
On Disney+, Y: The Last Man will premiere its first three episodes on Wednesday, September 22, with one episode dropping every Wednesday thereafter.
