With the popularity of horror as a genre during the 1900s, a new genre, similar to horror, came into existence, known as Post-apocalyptic fiction. The post-apocalyptic genre focuses on the tense and deadly nature of the earth when the human race collapsed or was on the verge of collapsing. This combined genre of horror and science fiction usually depicts the end of mankind either due to a holocaust or a pandemic, or an alien or zombie invasion.
The post-apocalyptic genre has managed to gain a loyal fan following in the past decades. Adding to the long list of post-apocalyptic series is a Hulu original, Y: The Last Man, developed by Eliza Clark.
Y: The Last Man: What We Know?
Based on the famous comic book series of the same name by renowned authors Brian Vaughan and Pia Guerra, the series narrates the tale of a young man Yorick Brown and his pet monkey, Ampersand. After an unusual cataclysmic event, every mammal present on the planet with chromosome Y was killed, except Yorick and his pet. Now, in a post-apocalyptic world, Yorick and Ampersand travel to look for survivors who assist him in restoring society.
Leading this execution plan is Yorick’s mother, Jennifer Brown. However, things begin to get ugly when Jennifer Brown is elected as the new US President. This ten-episode series, which first premiered on FX on Hulu on September 13, 2021, received generally mixed to positive responses from the audience and critics. After releasing the first 3 episodes together on September 13, the makers decided to change the release pattern and bring the following episodes every week.
Currently, episode 4 is slated to release on September 20 on FX on Hulu. Subscribers can have access to the episode from 2 pm to 9 pm (ET).

Y: The Last Man premieres on FX on Hulu, a streaming platform offered by Hulu. While the book earned the title of “cult-classic” during its six-year-long run, its television adaptation was appreciated but was not as thrilling as the book. Starring Diane Lane, Ashley Romans, Ben Schnetzer, and Olivia Thirlby as the lead cast, the series enjoys an average rating of 6.6 on IMDb. The release of the first three episodes together left the fans wanting more.
Episode 4 is scheduled to release this Monday, and it will be interesting to see which turn the story will take. Mark your calendars for September 20, 2021, and stay tuned for more updates on the American drama series, exclusively on Hulu.
