They'll have to tone it down as badly as TWD if they want this on basic cable, unless they finally throw off the yoke of advertiser minded self censorship.

FX has some pretty intense stuff. If they can show Sons of Anarchy with commercials this shouldn’t be a problem.

I don't know why they would though, FX has been pretty straightforward with content, and I don't think they'd really have to tone down much in terms of violence or sex or anything.


It certainly won't be as neutered as something like Preacher had to be.

FX allows for non-breast/genital nudity and f-words, so I think it'll be okay.

I'm curious if they will update aspects of the series, like acknowledging trans and intersex people. (I don't remember if the comic was that progressive.)

She's credited in Captain Marvel but what character she's playing hasn't been revealed. She's got a few other acting credits and recurring roles outside of that Still Star-Crossed show, but none that I've heard of
  • Bulletproof
  • Brotherhood
  • Doctors
  • Crims
  • Silent Witness
  • Fast Girls
So she isn't new by any stretch, but either her or Barry perform poorly in their roles, this show will be terrible.
Pretty much every actor in Britain under 45 has done a guest stint on Doctors (a hospital-set soap opera) at some point, it's like a rite of passage.

‘Y’: Amber Tamblyn To Star In FX Drama Pilot Based On ‘Y’: The Last Man’ Comic Book Series
Amber Tamblyn is set for a starring role in FX’s Y drama pilot, based on the acclaimed post-apocalyptic science fiction DC comic book series Y: The Last Man. She joins Diane Lane, Barry Keoghan, Imogen Poots, Lashana Lynch, Juliana Canfield and Marin Ireland in the stellar ensemble cast.

Based on the DC Comics series by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, Y traverses a post-apocalyptic world in which a cataclysmic event has decimated every male mammal save for one lone human. The new world order of women will explore gender, race, class and survival.

Tamblyn will play Mariette Callows. Daughter of the President of the United States, Mariette has been groomed for a career in politics and to uphold her father’s conservative values.

If you've got a Y chromosome and you're not Yorick Brown, the gendercide will getcha. It probably won't go beyond that.

THR has a take on this:
FX's 'Y: The Last Man' Series Parting Ways With Showrunners
FX is still moving forward with its series adaptation of beloved comic book series Y: The Last Man — but not with the original showrunners. Aida Croal and Michael Green announced their exit in a statement on Twitter Monday evening.

THR has confirmed that the series is still moving forward at the network, with the same cast in place, but the hunt is now on to replace the duo who had shepherded the development and piloting of the project now just being dubbed Y. Sources say that the exit came after creative differences with the network over the course of the show.
So first American Gods, and now Y. Are we sure it was Fuller who doomed Gods and not Green?

Oh, well, that's good then.

But to your Fuller point, the guy does have a graveyard full of things that have his name on it.
It's not good. Green is a really talented writer and whatever will end up on screen will very likely not match the work that he and Croal put in.

'tis a joke.

Ah, so it's still moving forward with the same cast. Good. Not sure how to feel about the change in showrunners - it could be a good move or a bad one. Hard to say without knowing what their vision for the show was. Here's hoping for the best!

It's good that the show isn't dead, there's plenty of other talented people out there and FX has a pretty great track record. Without seeing the show in its current form I cannot say if it'll be good or not, who knows but I looked up Croal and the fact that she worked on Luke Cage and Jessica Jones doesn't instill too much confidence in me.

🤷‍♂️
This would be her first showrunning gig, and that's usually where you get to see a writer shine (or crash and burn).
Yep, her resume is weak and Michael Green has a ton of misses as well. This could end up being great for the show.
Kings, rats. he created Kings.
