The events of the TV series “Y: The Last Man” are set in the ordinary world. In a short time, an unknown virus kills all carriers of the Y chromosomes — animals and people, all who are male. In a matter of hours, the only man Yorick, the owner of the Capuchin monkey, remains alive in the world. It seems that it is in his pet that all the most important secrets are hidden. But who will help Yorick solve them?
“Y: The Last Man ss 2”: release date, announcement
Despite the rather high rating of the season 1, the creators of the TV show “Y: The Last Man” did not renew it for the second one. The reasons for this decision are unknown.
Recall that the TV series is based on the comic strip of the same name by Pia Guerra and Brian K. Vaughan. Its popularity has not subsided since 2002, when the first publications appeared in magazines.
Yorick has been practicing magic tricks in the style of the famous Houdini for many years. He loved to play pranks on people and even managed to make a little money on it, even if he was far from real success. The apartment was paid for by his mother Jennifer Brown, who works in the Senate. Yorick himself could not afford such expensive housing, but did not want to move to something more modest. His thoughts were occupied with other things.
Hero, Yorick’s sister, looked at the world more realistically. She was amazed that her brother, being at such a mature age, still accepts money from his parents and does not want to work. Hero herself worked in an ambulance. Her married colleague, with whom she is in a romantic relationship, told her that he had confessed to his wife about infidelity and was ready to leave her. For a moment Hero believed, but decided to make sure.
Soon, the girl read an SMS on the phone of her beloved that his wife asks to bring diapers and asks how soon he will be at home. Enraged, Hero begins to rush at the offender with everything that comes to her hand. The last item is a fire extinguisher, after being hit by which the man dies. It is not possible to revive it. After a couple of hours, Hero finds the corpses of several more men nearby.
Shocked, she realizes that something global has happened. At this point, men all over the world begin to die. And only Yorick, together with his monkey Ampersand, sleeps peacefully at home and dreams of proposing to a girl named Beth. They have been together for a long time, and he is serious about making her his wife, which Hero does not approve of.
Waking up, Yorick discovers that Beth is not at home, and an unimaginable chaos is taking place in the world. He quickly realizes that he was the only one of the men, and tries to get used to this thought. He has to look for supporters, adapt to life in the new world. And tricks become an integral part of his existence, because they often help to escape from trouble…
