Ben Schnetzer who plays the role of Yorick wasn’t the first choice because at first Keoghan was set to play this role but in February 2020 this change in the cast was made official.

Filming of Y: The Last Man Season 1 started in August 2020. Most of the show is filmed at Pearl River, New York.

There were some big names up to play the role of Yorick like Shia LaBeouf who at first wanted to play the role but later refused to say that the role was similar to his transformers’ one. Zachary Levi was another actor who desperately wanted to play the role of Yorick in the movie and went to great heights in order to achieve the same but unfortunately, the plan never crossed the bridge.

There was an entire production cast ready to make the movie like J.C. Spink, Chris Bender and David Goyer were ready to produce the movie. Mason Novick and Jake Weiner water going to be the executive producers of this movie. Even Dan Trachtenberg was set to direct this movie but unfortunately, in 2013, the movie got cancelled just when things were looking really bright. Hopefully, Coronavirus pandemic will not cancel the television series adaptation of this comic book. Let us know your thoughts regarding Y: The Last Man Season 1 in the comments section down below.
