The Last of Us is one of the finest video game adaptations in television – or cinema – history. It was developed by Emmy Award winning writers Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) and Neil Druckmann (creator/writer of the "The Last of Us" franchise and Naughty Dog Co-President) who serve as writers and executive producers. Carolyn Strauss, Evan Wells, Asad Qizilbash, Carter Swan, and Rose Lam also executive produce.

Pedro Pascal (who anchored the funnyst episode of Saturday Night Live this season) and Bella Ramsey lead the cast as Joel and Ellie. Riley, Merle Dandridge, Marlene, Nick Offerman, and Melanie Lynskey are all actors.

HBO renewed the popular, critically acclaimed post-apocalyptic drama for a second season in January 2022, although it has not set a timetable for its premiere.

The Last of Us takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of a cruel quarantine zone. Both must travel the United States and depend on each other for survival.
