“Y: The Last Man” is written and executive-produced by Eliza Clark, who previously worked on shows including “The Killing” and “Animal Kingdom,” according to IMDb. She took over from Michael Green -– who previously produced “American Gods,” an even more turbulent production than “Y: The Last Man” –- and Aida Mashaka Croal, who left the show over creative differences in 2019 after a first pilot was shot and scrapped. The series also recast the lead role of Yorick, with Schnetzer replacing “Dunkirk” and “Chernobyl” star Barry Keoghan, as well as several other main roles, including Olivia Thirlby replacing Imogen Poots as Yorick’s sister Hero and “NOS4A2” star Ashley Romans taking over the role of Yorick’s bodyguard Agent 355 from Lashana Lynch.
The first two episodes are directed by Louise Friedberg, and all of the season’s episodes are directed by women, according to Variety. Most of the show’s department heads are women, including both directors of photography, the production designer, the costume designer, the casting director, the stunt coordinator, and the editors.
“Y: The Last Man” premieres Monday, Sept. 13 exclusively on FX on Hulu.
