HBO announced the television adaptation for The Last of Us on March 6, 2020. The series will be produced by game director Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin, creator of HBO’s hit mini-series Chernobyl. That’s not all! The show seems like it will have all sorts of details and additions that will not only adapt but also expand upon the Last of Us universe.
WHEN IS THE LAST OF US HBO RELEASE DATE?
Last of Us HBO was announced on March 6, 2020. Given the announcement, the show will likely air in late 2021 or early 2022. The show is seemingly going straight to series, which means there won't be an initial pilot episode or another preliminary litmus test.
"This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for us to partner with Craig [Mazin] ... and PlayStation to bring the virtual world of this acclaimed game to life," HBO Programming President Casey Bloys told The Hollywood Reporter.
If we had to predict a release date for the series using some previous examples, HBO’s Watchmen was first announced in 2018 then debuted in 2019. Big Little Lies was first announced as an HBO series in May 2015 then debuted in February 2017. While it could take longer, a year and a half is a standard turn around rate from series pick up to airing.
The award-winning video game 'The Last of Us' is being adapted for a new live-action HBO series from the original writer and creator of 'Chernobyl.' Here's everything we know from prospective release date to potential cast.
