Everything you need to know about Barry Keoghan's new TV show, 'Y'

This sounds like it’ll be worth the wait.

BARRY KEOGHAN’S NEW sci-fi series just got a full series order from Netflix.

The actor is starring in Y - a post-apocalyptic sci-fi show based on the award-winning comic book series Y: The Last Man

Keoghan confirmed the news with this extremely teasing tweet. 

Right, what’s it going to be like?

Y is set in the aftermath of a mysterious plague that has wiped out every male mammal except for Yorick Brown (played by Keoghan) – an amateur escape artist – and his monkey, Ampersand. 

Sounds like ideal living conditions, TBH.

Keoghan previously said he’s “very proud” to be bringing this series to the small screen, so you’d imagine it’s good. 

Here’s what FX said about it.

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.”

So, there you go.

Ok, who else is in it?

Sorry, when’s out again?

Not ’til 2020, according to Deadline – sorry! (And you thought Baz was bad for teasing.) DailyEdge.ie will keep you posted in the mean time, though. Don’t sweat it.
