Brian K. Vaughan's Y The Last Man will see the light of day as an FX TV series.

THR reports following the movie rights having reverted from New Line Cinemas, Vaughan and Color Force's Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson are bringing to life Y The Last Man at FX.

Y: The Last Man was a popular DC Comics Vertigo comic book that began in 2002 running for 60 issues. The plot of Y: The Last Man centers around the last man on Earth - actually one of two last males of all the mammals - with the other being Yorick Brown's pet monkey. The series sees various post-apocalyptic and political themes play into the mix with Brown visiting geneticists, presidents and secret agents.

Our own Ken Porter covered Y: The Last Man in his Alt Beat comic book colum from a while back: "This series is a good-old fashioned combination of apocalypse, road trips, and a study of the human condition. Superhero comics can give us action on a fantastic scale, but Y: The Last Man delivers action and adventure in a realistic science fiction setting. The stakes are always high and the situations vary with every issue."

The report notes a search is currently under way to find a writer to develop the Y The Last Man series with Vaughan, and a director for the potential series has not yet been determined.
