Monday TV: ‘Y: The Last Man’ Ends; Why?

Why is a good question to ask about the fate of “Y: The Last Man” (Hulu, streaming), the elaborate adaptation of the DC comic about the sudden death of (almost) all men on Earth. The good-looking series with Diane Lane, Amber Tamblyn and Marin Ireland (pictured above) gets an abrupt end tonight because of a complicated series of delays, contracts, and switching of creative control early on that drove the price too high for the network (who maybe should have shown it on FX instead of the confusing hub “FX on Hulu”). At any rate, don’t expect a lot of completion in the end tonight, and look for the possibility of another network picking up the series.

Addiction, grief, family, faith and trans identity in rural Michigan are explored in Angelo Madsen Minax’s film “North by Current,”  making its debut on “POV” (PBS, 10 p.m., check local listings).

“Son of Monarchs” (HBO Max, streaming) is a new movie about a New York City biologist who returns to Mexico and visits the monarch butterfly forests of Michoacán.

George Stephanopoulos hosts the documentary “The Informant: Fear and Faith in the Heartland” (Hulu, streaming) about the takedown of a militant white supremacist group in Kansas. 

“Judy Justice” (IMDBtv, streaming) is the reinvention of the show you knew as “Judge Judy,” with sharp-tongued Judy Sheindlin back on the bench.
