Several people attached to the series were tagged in the tweet. They include co-creator Aida Makasha, executive producer/director Melina Matsoukas, executive producer Nina Jacobson and star Barry Keoghan who plays the role of Yorrick Brown
Y: The Last Man is based on the strange circumstances surrounding Yorrick Brown has he becomes humanity’s last living male. An epidemic has wiped out all the males on the planet with the exception of Yorrick and the series will follow him as he travels to find answers for why he was the only man on Earth spared.
The series definitely has some hype surrounding it since it is based on a multiple Eisner winning graphic novel. The series was originally in discussion for a film but when the rights returned back to Vaughn in 2014, development of the TV show began soon thereafter.
