Today, we at Knight Edge Media have found out that production will begin in the long-in-development FX series Y: The Last Man in March 2020 in Toronto, Canada. According to a recent production listening filming on season one will begin March 23rd, 2020 – July 28th, 2020 (obviously exact dates subject to change). The series had already completed filming on its pilot episode some time ago.
However, over the summer the series gained a new showrunner Eliza Clark who took over for Aida Croal and Michael Green according to The Hollywood Reporter. Which would explain the delay on the completion of season 1. Comic book writer Brian K. Vaughan stated in an Instagram post that the show is still expected to debut on FX in 2020. But that is unknown at this point unless it is Fall 2020. The show will star Diane Lane and Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk, Eternals).

The show must go on! Sorry for two Hollywood sellout posts in one day, but I just got back from the writers’ room for Y (still coming to FX in 2020!), and I’m very pleased to say the series is in excellent hands with new showrunner @elizaaclarkw and her intimidating squad of all-stars. TV is goddamn hard, and if the last 17 years have taught co-creator @pia.guerra and me anything, it’s that our story is particularly challenging to adapt, so I’m very grateful to everyone who’s helped get Yorick & Co. this far, especially Michael Green and Aïda Croal. Anyway, stay tuned, very good (monkey) shit coming your way soon. #ythelastman #fx #ampersand #poop
