The Last Of Us HBO TV show is a big deal for The Last Of Us fans. The game received critical acclaim and was praised for its narrative, voice acting, sound design, music score, and animation. The story follows two people who are struggling to survive in a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by the cordyceps brain infection. The virus has mutated these creatures into something so hideous that they’re barely recognizable as humans. The infected humans are now monsters in every sense of the word.
What is the release date of The Last of Us HBO TV Show?
Production on The Last of Us began in July 2021. Filming will be done mostly in Canada, and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported that production ends on June 8, 2022.
Post-production and editing can take a long time. The seven-episode Game of Thrones Season 7 was filmed in February 2017, finished filming in July 2017, and when it premiered on TV five months later. Then, you can watch the 8 episodes of season 2 of The Witcher. It ended filming in April 2021 and will air in December 2021, 8 months later. If The Last of Us has 10 episodes like this, then it will air in December 2022 or January 2023.
What is the plot of The Last of Us HBO TV Show?
In the first season, Joel and Ellie are survivors in Boston. They have to find the Fireflies. There are people in this story that have to go on a long journey. They meet and fight other people along the way. There is a choice that someone has to make at the end of the book, which makes you wonder what someone would sacrifice for the sake of saving others. The HBO series will show what happened in the game. The writer, Druckmann, might add new content.

This does not mean that Season 1 will have all of the first game. Maybe it will include some of the second game. There is no way to tell how much they might include. This is because Anna might be in both the Last of Us Part 2 and the show.
Druckmann mentioned Riley in the interview. He might be talking about American Dreams, a comic book based on The Last of Us. In the game, Riley was not given enough time to explain her character, but in the comic, she is fully explained, and her relationship with Ellie is better understood.
Despite the first game being prioritized for the first season, it seems that The Last of Us can last for more than one season. Craig Mazin will stay on if this is true. He recently signed a contract with HBO to stay there for years.
Who will be starring in The Last of Us HBO TV Show?
We know some characters who will be in The Last of Us episode. Joel will be played by PEDRO PASCAL, which you may know from the show The Mandalorian and Narcos. Ellie will be played by BELLA RAMSEY, who you might have seen on Game of Thrones. Tommy’s brother is played by Gabriel Luna, starting in April 2021. He was in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and he was the bad guy Rev-9 in Terminator: Dark Fate.
Luna’s casting confirms that both Joel and Tommy will be Spanish on the HBO series.
An actress, Merle Dandridge, will play the rebel leader of the Fireflies in live-action. She played a role in the game before. Someone else is playing Sarah now.
In July, Deadline reported that Anna Torv would play Tess. This was the companion of Joel in the game. And then in August, Deadline also reported that Jeffrey Pierce, Murray Bartlett, and Con O’Neill were joining the show. “Pierce will be in the show again, but he will play a different character. Bartlett and O’Neill are also on the show, but they are playing different people.”
Pierce voiced Joel’s brother Tommy in the game. He is not a character in the show, but he is new to the franchise. And his character will have huge implications for what happened in the game.
Besides Tommy’s wife, Maria Miller, the main people in the show are pretty much everyone else.
