The Last of Us series has been given a go ahead and set to start production soon at HBO.
The series is being developed by “Chernobyl” showrunner Craig Mazin, “Game of Thrones” producer Carolyn Strauss and the game’s writer and creative director Neil Druckmann. HBO and Sony Pictures TV are producing along with PlayStation Productions, Word Games and game developer Naughty Dog.
The story is set twenty years after the destruction of modern civilization in a biological apocalypse involving fungal spores. The action centers on Joel, a hardened survivor who is hired to smuggle a fourteen-year-old girl named Ellie out of an oppressive quarantine zone. The seemingly small job becomes a brutal journey as they come to depend on each other for survival.
