Popular Video Game The Last of Us is ready to be turned into a series under HBO banners!
While fans are well aware of the fact that the popular video game The Last Of Us is becoming a series for the newly launched streaming platform HBO Max, this highly anticipated series has been developed from scratch.

Do we have a release date for the upcoming series?
Fans will be pleased to know that game creator Neil Druckmann and game of Thrones Executive producer Carolyn Strauss will deal with the series. Francesca Orsi, HBO Programming’s EVP, is already making an official statement as he welcomes the two aboard the project, defining them as visionaries in a league of their own. This is what Neil Druckmann recently shared on his Twitter account.
Oh damn! We are picked up for a full season! Tiens moi, @clmazin! I am scared!

We haven’t announced the release date yet, but we are sure that given the huge size of the project, the series won’t be released anytime soon. While the sequel to the video game has already been released, nothing has been revealed about whether or not the series will also have a second season. HBO hasn’t released any casting details either!
