Diane Lane’s new series, Y, is officially ordered to series at FX.

Ever since news broke last year that FX was trying to develop a series based on critically beloved comic book, Y: The Last Man, fans have been holding their breath to see if the show would eventually come to fruition. Studios have been attempting to adapt the comic as far back as 2007 with little to no results. However, fans can officially get excited because the television series will be heading to FX sometime next year.

Simply titled Y, the show will be led by Diane Lane (who plays the current incarnation of Martha Kent in the DCEU). She plays Senator Jennifer Brown, the mother of the only remaining man after an apocalypse wipes out the gender. Her son, Yorick, will be played by Barry Keoghan (American AnimalsDunkirk) and Imogen Poots (RoadiesI Kill Giants) has been tapped to play her daughter Hero.
