FX is doing things a bit differently with its latest series which won't air on its television channel and will instead premiere on Hulu as part of its FX on Hulu content hub and we have all the details on how you can watch Y: The Last Man online.

Based on the acclaimed DC Comics comic book series of the same name by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, Y: The Last Man is set in a post-apocalyptic world where every mammal with a Y chromosome suddenly dropped dead following a cataclysmic event. However, one man named Yorick Brown (Ben Schnetzer) and his male Capuchin monkey Ampersand managed to survive.

Now the remaining survivors are trying to survive in a world turned on its head. One of the survivors is Yorick's mother Jennifer Brown who was a U.S. senator before the event. Following the death of the president though, she is tasked with leading what remains of the U.S. government as the nation's first female president.

While the original comic book series that the show is based on ran for 60 issues from 2002 until 2008 and received multiple awards, the TV adaptation of Y: The Last Man has actually been in development since 2015. Michael Green and Aida Mashaka Croal who were the show's original co-showrunners ended up leaving the project back in 2019, which is likely one possible reason for its delayed release.

The first three episodes of Y: The Last Man are available to stream now on Hulu and the remaining three episodes in the show's first season will come to the streaming service weekly on Wednesdays.

Whether you're a fan of the comic book series or just wonder what a world without men might look like, we'll show you how to watch Y: The Last Man online from anywhere in the world.
