The long-awaited adaptation of the critically-acclaimed comic book series, Y: The Last Man, has officially finished filming. With many societal struggles holding back progress, a producer on the show expressed relief and love with an Instagram post.
Farewell and Thank You: The Last Man Producer Shares Final Filming Post
Y: The Last Man producer Mari Jo Winkler shared an Instagram post featuring some artwork with a cotton swab. “Y: The Last Swab” the picture reads, with a hand firmly gripping a cotton swab in regards to the COVID-19 testing sessions. The caption reads: “Happy Last Swab. Last day of shooting Y:THE LAST MAN. 135 days of shooting in a pandemic. Streaming September 13th FX on Hulu.” She then included the hashtags #ythelastmam and #wedidit at the end.
Writer and producer Eliza Clark also shared an Instagram post that features several members of the cast. Everyone is posing for a smile, with the caption expressing appreciation for all the work that has been accomplished. Those featured in the picture include Diane Lane, Missi Pyle, Marin Ireland, Ben Schnetzer, and a few others.
Ben Schnetzer plays Yorick Brown, the last man on Earth. In a world ruled by women, the series follows Yorick and his pet monkey Ampersand as they navigate through a world without males. The comic book series won the 2008 Eisner Award for Best Continuing Series.
When to Expect the Premiere
Filming for Y: The Last Man was originally supposed to commence in April 2020, but then the COVID-19 pandemic came into the picture. It wouldn’t be until months later on October 26, 2020, that official production would begin. Production finally wrapped yesterday (July 23, 2021). And the premiere is quickly approaching, too. The first two episodes will debut on FX on Hulu on September 13 – less than months from now. The show’s initial season will release a total of 10 episodes.
We’re looking forward to the premiere of Y: The Last Man. Congratulations to the cast and crew for enduring all of the COVID-19 madness during the show’s production. If you’re excited to finally see Yorick on the small screen, be sure to let us know with a comment down below!
