PS5 : HBO gives the green light to the series that will adapt the Last of Us

Sony Playstation 5 :

The series based on the video game The Last of Us has finally received the green light from HBO.

Adapting a video game to a television series may not seem like the best idea in the world, especially considering the many video game adaptations to the cinema that have not worked as well as expected, but when the network that is going to do it is HBO, the thing changes.

And more if the game they are going to adapt is The Last of Us, one of the most intense and most loved by fans since it went on sale in 2013. Although the project to adapt the zombie game to television had been announced since March This year, as Variety has reported, it is now that HBO has given the final green light for the project to go ahead and begin its pre-production process with a more than brilliant team.

On the one hand we have Craig mazin, who will serve as an executive producer on the series as well as as the main screenwriter, as he did with the Chernobyl series, winner of two Golden Globes and nine Emmy Awards, including the most important categories of Best Limited Series; and on the other, we have Neil Druckmann, creative director and creator of the video game from The Last of Us who will be in charge of reviewing the work done with the adaptation.

These are the must-play PlayStation 4 games that you should “must” play if you have the Sony console.

Craig and Neil are visionaries who play in a league apart. With them as captains and alongside the incomparable Carolyn Strauss [productora de Juego de tronos], this series will delight all fans who are passionate about two video games from The Last of Us, while attracting many more to the series, “explained Francesca Orsi, vice president of programming at HBO.
