The Last of Us TV series was officially greenlit by HBO in November 2020. Since then we’ve gotten some interesting news regarding the casts for Ellie and Joel, which will be played by Bella Ramsey (Ellie) and Pedro Pascal (Joel). Bella Ramsey played the incredible role of Lyanna Mormont in Game of Thrones and we’ve seen Pedro Pascal in major movies and TV series like The Mandalorian, Narcos, Game of Thrones, Wonder Woman 1984, and the list goes on.
IGN released a video interview today with The Last of Us creative director and writer, Neil Druckman, and Narrative Lead and co-writer for The Last of Us Part 2, Halley Gross. When asked about whether or not The Last of Us TV series will follow the storyline of the first two games, Neil replied, “We talked about at length that season 1 is going to be game 1.”
“As far as the more superficial thing, should the person wear the same plaid shirt or the same red shirt? They might or might not appear in it, that’s way less important to us.” Neil added. “Things, sometimes they are pretty close, and sometimes they deviate greatly to much better effect because we are dealing with a different medium.”
Neil also mentioned that “some of his favorite episodes so far in the TV show have deviated greatly.” This pretty much confirms that while The Last of Us TV show will focus on the storyline of the first game released in 2013, there will be some surprises along the way.
The Last of Us Part 2 has been critically praised by almost every major video game media and won the Golden Joystick Game of the Year award in 2020 for the best action/adventure title.
As for the future of The Last of Us video game franchise, Neil mentioned in an interview with GQ, that the next big thing could be The Last of Us Part 3 or it could be a new IP. “As you start wrapping things up, creatively there are fewer and fewer responsibilities and my mind can’t help but think about the next thing. So, yeah, the next thing could be a Part 3, the next thing could be some new IP.”
