Y: The Last Man is once again in development for a live-action adaptation -- this time in television, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Series writer and co-creator Brian K. Vaughan is reportedly developing it for FX alongside Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson.

Originally launched in 2002 at DC/Vertigo, Y: The Last Man by Vaughn and artist Pia Guerra has been optioned numerous times in the past for both TV and feature film development. At one point, New Line had set director D.J. Caruso with screenwriters David Goyer and Carl Ellsworth to develop it as a feature film. In September 2014, Vaughn revealed that he was in negotiations to obtain the rights back from New Line and DC/Vertigo to develop it himself.

In the years since Y: The Last Man debuted in comic books, Vaughn has done significant work in television from writing ABC's Lost and developing CBS' Under The Dome.
