On January 15, 2023, the long-awaited series The Last of Us will begin, adapted from the excellent exclusive PlayStation license produced by Naughty Dog.
The Last of Us TV Series, Promising Trailer
Composed of 9 episodes, this first season looks promising, that's what the first trailer revealed a few weeks ago. And the impression is confirmed with this new, even meatier trailer. As a reminder, the series takes place twenty years after a biological apocalypse and the collapse of civilization as we know it. The story follows the adventures of Joel (Pedro Pascal, aka the Mandalorian), a survivor who takes Ellie (Bella Ramsey) under his wing in an attempt to rescue her from the oppressive quarantine zone. What at first was supposed to be an easy job, will become an extraordinary journey for each of the two protagonists.
TV series The Last of Us, rather faithful adaptation of the 2013 game
The first season will be the a priori faithful adaptation of the original 2013 game, with however some narrative differences in the course and the nature of the events. Series showrunner Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) clarified that these changes were made to expand the universe started in the game's story, certainly not to change its nature.
It now remains to be seen which broadcaster will offer The Last of Us series in France (see our news Canal+ would buy OCS and Orange Studio, Game of Thrones/House of the Dragon are changing dairy).
