It is an American tv series which is soon going to be released. Eliza Clark makes it, and it is based on a book series with the same name, which Pia Guerra and Brian K. Vaughan wrote.
The movie Y: The Last Man happens in an apocalyptic world where a cataclysmic event kills every mammal with who has a Y-chromosome except one man and his pet monkey named Ampersand. After that, Yorik, the main lead or the protagonist, travels to a new world as he survives the struggle with its losses, and then he tries to restore the world again, which is led by his mother, who is the new president of the U.S. named Jennifer Brown.
The Focus on Transgender Community too
Originally in the novel, every animal with Y-chromosomes dies simultaneously, which includes most mammals like birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians, etc. Still, insertables remain unaffected because they use different chromosomes mostly. Transgender people were not focused in the comic book as it was only mentioned that trans-men survived as they have Y-chromosomes, but in the series, they got more focused.
The makers of the tv series said that protagonist Yorick’s maleness is not what keeps him alive; it is his Y chromosome that did it. Gender is a different thing, and chromosomes are not the same as gender. It includes women and non-binary people, along with intersex people. They also said that we are going to make a show that will focus on the transgender community too.
