“Those people will jump at anything that has a whiff of conspiracy.” FX on Hulu has revealed more trailers for the Y: The Last Man series of 10 eps, which will begin streaming in September. We’re featuring this trailer despite our usual no-TV rules because we have covered updates on a Y: The Last Man for more than a decade – the very first trailer dropped only a few weeks ago. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, “Y” is the last surviving male human on the planet. Based on the comic series “Y: The Last Man.” Ben Schnetzer stars as the only man left in the world, Yorick Brown, and he’s joined by a big ensemble cast including Diane Lane, Ashley Romans, Olivia Thirlby, Quincy Kirkwood, Jess Salgueiro, Samantha Brown, Laura de Carteret, and Sydney Meyer. This second trailer is much more intense, focusing on a meeting Diane Lane (as Senator Jennifer Brown) is having with other heads of the all-female government, discussing the rumors of this only man left in the world. So far, this adaptation is looking pretty dang good – I’m into this footage.
Here’s the new promo trailers for Eliza Clark’s series Y: The Last Man on Hulu, direct from YouTube:
