The first trailer for Hulu’s adaptation of Y: The Last Man will drop on August 5 at 1 PM EST / 10 AM PST. The streaming service announced that the first substantive clip of the series in a tweet you can see below–which has a five-second teaser with some very quick imagery from the show.
An adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s Vertigo comic series Y: The Last Man has been in the works for years. Production finally began last fall, along with the announcement that the series was forthcoming sometime in 2021. The series stars Ben Schnetzer (Warcraft) as Yorick Brown–the last human male on Earth–Ashley Romans (NOS4A2) as Agent 355, Diane Lane (Batman v Superman) as Jennifer Brown, Olivia Thirlby (Dredd) as Hero Brown, and Juliana Canfield (Succession) as Beth Deville. The series will also feature Amber Tamblyn, Marin Ireland, Diana Bang, and Elliot Fletcher.

Debuting in 2002, the Vertigo comic series Y: The Last Man follows Yorick Brown and his monkey Ampersand, the last two surviving males on Earth, after a virus wipes out every mammal with a Y chromosome. The series ran for 60 issues and is widely considered an iconic story from DC Comics’ adult imprint–one that also produced Preacher, Constantine, A History of Violence, and others.
