Keoghan was first linked to the project back in July but he recently confirmed the news on Twitter, sharing a picture of a dark figure walking among a sea of male bodies, writing: “#YTheLastMan 🐵🎥 COMING SOON…”
Diane Lane will also star in the series as Senator and Yorick’s mother while Imogen Poots will play his sister.
