In March it was confirmed that a series of The Last of Us was in development. If that was news that managed to excite you, you should know that HBO has already given it the green light. This means that it will come true.
As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, HBO agreed to start production on The Last of Us series. Recall that its development gave its initial banner in March when Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) and Neil Druckmann began working on the idea.

“Craig and Neil are visionaries who are in a unique league,” said Francesca Orsi, vice president of programming for HBO. With them in charge, alongside the incomparable Carolyn Strauss, the series is sure to resonate with fans of The Last of Us and those new to the series. We are delighted to partner with Naughty Dog, Word Games, Sony, and PlayStation to adapt this powerful and immersive story. “
We remind you that The Last of Us series will follow the events that we saw told in the first video game. That said, it will also look to expand them by taking advantage of the narrative time that a TV series can deliver.
It is unknown when the production of The Last of Us will begin
It is important to note that, at the moment, no further details about the production of The Last of Us have been shared.
In other words, at the moment it is a mystery when it will begin its pre-production and production phase. Who could be in his cast has not been revealed either. What was revealed is that, due to scheduling problems, Johan Renck will no longer be the director of the series pilot.
In case you missed it: this actress would love to be Ellie on The Last of Us series.
As usual, we will keep an eye on it. Once we have more details about it, we will let you know.
The Last of Us arrived on PlayStation 3 in 2013 and later had a remastered version for PlayStation 4. While its sequel, The Last of Us: Part II, arrived this year and is nominated for GOTY at The Game Awards 2020.
