FX is shortening the title of Y: The Last Man to simply Y
FX CEO John Landgraf said shortening the title will give the comic book-turned-TV pilot an air of mystery and add to the cable network's trend of having short titles. “You tend to see one or two word titles,” said Landgraf at the TV press tour. “Y seems like a provocative shape. We can do a lot with it graphically. It’s a little mysterious.”

FX's pilot order for an adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan's beloved apocalyptic comic book series comes two-and-a-half-years after the project was first announced. As Lesley Goldberg explains, "it's been a long and twisty path to the screen for Y: The Last Man. FX put the adaptation in development in late 2015 after Vaughan reacquired the rights to his franchise following a lengthy waiting period after New Line scrapped plans to convert the comic book to a feature film."
