What can we expect from the story?
HBO’s series is expected to have the same basic plot as the video game. Joel will escort Ellie through the post-apocalyptic country, after an outbreak of a mutated fungus has turned human hosts into ferocious creatures and left much of civilization in ruins. According to one CHEAP report from March 2020, the show “will include the events of the original game”, while the door is open for more “additional content” based on the video game sequel, The Last Of Us Part IIReleased in June 2020.
Creator Neil Druckmann told IGN that some plots will “deviate greatly” from the events of the video game. “Some of my favorite episodes so far have deviated a lot from the story and I can’t wait for people to watch them,” he said. One change that has been confirmed is that the show’s outbreak will take place in 2003, as opposed to the video game that occurred in 2013.
Lead star Pedro Pascal also teased the HBO series in an interview with GQ in April 2022. “There’s a very, very creative way to celebrate what’s important and also preserve what’s iconic to the video game experience, and also the things you don’t most. necessarily expected,” he said. “And then there are the instructions where you expect it to go, and it might not… they’re doing some really clever things, that’s all I can say. It is in good hands because they [Craig and Neil] love it so much. So it’s really made for those who love it. And there are some very intense storytelling for those who may be less familiar. “
Second season of Our last has yet to be ordered by HBO, though that is expected if the first season performs well.
Who is the Creative Team?

Neil helped create and direct Our last video games. In an interview with Weekly entertainment in June 2020, Neil talked about adapting the game for television.
“With TV, you have to figure out how it communicates ideas or tells stories. When you remove the interactivity of the story, how do you make it unique to this other medium? “It’s been a fun challenge and I think there’s a lot to learn from it,” he said.
