Seems like HBO is finally giving the go-ahead to create a full-fledged season based on the popular video game title. Fans of the post-apocalyptic genre might finally get to enjoy the unique setting of the last of us universe where a fungal parasite called “Cordyceps” has turned a large portion of the general populous into different types of infected creatures.

Despite the latest sequel being quite divisive among the last of us fanbase, the world in which the game is based is still a great place for writers to tell an intriguing story. And HBO already has a huge library of amusing shows. The Last of Us series would be a great fit for HBO’s portfolio of quality TV shows.

As subscription-based streaming services are getting more competitive, HBO is stepping up their game in a big way by making some TV series adaptations of popular video games.

“We’re thrilled to be working with HBO and this fantastic creative team to bring ‘The Last of Us’ series to life,” said Jeff Frost, President of Sony Pictures Television Studios, and Asad Qizilbash, Head of PlayStation Productions. (source: WarnerMedia)

Craig Mazin And Neil Druckmann will write and executive produce the show assuring the adaptation will get all the care it needs from all parties involved. All the big-name executives at HBO confirmed the news via an official tweet. The exact cast for the show is still uncertain as of now.

Furthermore, some veteran show makers will also be taking part in this endeavor. Based upon HBO’s previous track record, this show might be the one to dismiss the bad stigma surrounding awful adaptation of video game stories into other forms of entertainment.
