The television series ‘The Last of Us’ is another of the productions that adapt a successful video game. The goal is to attract the large group of gamers to streaming platforms, not just playing (although some like Netflix are putting a lot of money into video games) but taking advantage of the attraction of the big franchises.

And it is that a time of rehashes, remakes, prequels, sequels and other monstrosities, the adaptation to the small screen of popular video games (Halo, Witcher, Arcane or the one at hand) continues to be a good escape route. Until inspiration strikes to open up to more original content, that is.

What are we going to tell you that you do not know about The Last of Us, one of the most awarded titles of all timewell valued by critics and the public, with outstanding scores in sections such as narrative, game mechanics or visual and sound design, and became a total sales success, 17 million copies by 2018 on PS3 and PS4 and whatnot. it was exclusive to the Sony platform.

That attraction is what HBO relies on to create a successful television adaptation in collaboration with PlayStation Productions. Taking into account that the script has been co-written by Neil Druckmann (vice president of the Naughty Dog studio and writer and creative director of The Last Us game and sequel) it was certain that the series would capture a good part of the atmosphere of the video game. With its notable differences due to the different way of enjoying the entertainment medium and the necessary creative licenses in an adaptation.

The advances we saw in the last months of production went that way and the first full trailer published confirms it. The setting is set in a post-apocalyptic world in the year 2033, 20 years after a fungus (Cordyceps) outbreak turned humans into terrifying zombies.

The TV series of ‘The Last of Us’ is one of the most expensive of which HBO has produced and there is talk of figures greater than 10 million dollars per episode. It will premiere on HBO and HBO Max sometime in the first half of 2023. It looks good.
