It isn’t a big surprise that The Last of Us will now be a television series. We are talking about a franchise that has had its nose deep in popular media. I mean, It was a one-night-only stage musical in 2014.

I think almost everyone agrees that the characters and the story have a large potential outside the video game medium and a television series gives the writers a chance to expand the lore a little bit more. HBO has confirmed that Neil Druckmann, the BAFTA award-winning writer for the game will be on board for the project and he will share writing duties with Craig Mazin, the writer and executive producer of the critically acclaimed HBO series “Chernobyl”. 

HBO has also emphasized in a statement that the project is currently “under development” and there are no details for a release date yet. 

The Last of Us is one of the most awarded and respected games in the medium. It came out on the PS3 in 2013 to a rousing critical reception and through its cinematic, tense gameplay bagged a lot of awards. A remastered version of the game with better visuals was released the following year. 

The Last of Us Part II, the sequel, is expected this year on May 29 for the PS4. It will be interesting to see if there are any contributions from the original voice cast, Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson, in particular, delivered spectacular performances as Ellie and Joel in the game. 

In The Last of Us, a strain of the mutant Cordyceps fungus ravages the population, turning people into aggressive zombie-like creatures known as “The Infected”. You play as Joel, a smuggler in this bleak, futuristic world who has to help Ellie get to the other side of a quarantine zone to a rebel safe haven for a group known as “The Fireflies”. What follows is a memorable journey across the post-apocalyptic world.
