Last Of Us Video Game Series Getting TV Adaption By HBO

A series I think all the that have played the game will greatly appreciate

Games this past generation have been increasing in strong and complex story narratives. Developers have been testing the limits of immersion in genres by giving you captivating environments tagged with interesting, in-depth characters.


We've seen adaptations of video game series happen such as The Witcher which will be premiering its second season soon. Following the success of the videogame adaptation series, I would hope to see others such as the Bioshock, Mass Effect, Metro, and Borderlands franchises.


One of the videogames of this past generation was The Last Of Us, an amazing post-apocalyptic survival game that had recently gotten a sequel.

The Last Of Us had amazing visuals and dialogue that took you into a world shattered and surrounded by life clinging on to what they got left. Constantly meeting their match, Ellie and Joel face against doomed humans who had undergone terrifying fungal mutations.


The game developed by Naughty Dog (Uncharted, Crash Bandicoot) that has been considered the best of its time is in the works for an HBO adaptation series. HBO has done Game Of Thrones which was known for its intricate and uniquely intertwined storylines created by George R.R Martin. I'm very confident HBO will do The Last Of Us creator and writer, Neil Druckmann, justice.

Due to the nature of the second installment still being so new, we don't think an adaptation of the events that took place in it will occur yet.


Variety has already released some plot details we can hang on to until any further information.


The series takes place twenty years after modern civilization has been destroyed. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey, as they both must traverse across the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.


What do you think about this adaptation? Are you excited?
