The Last of Us HBO series will star The Mandalorian’s Pedro Pascal as Joel and Game of Thrones’ Bella Ramsey as Ellie. The first season is said to adapt much from the original game from 2013, but some episodes will “deviate greatly” from its events.

This series based on The Last of Us will be written and produced by Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann and Chernobyl’s Craig Mazin.

The Last of Us is just one of the 10 shows and movie currently in development based on PlayStation games. The recent announcement of a film based on Ghost of Tsushima adds to that list that already includes Uncharted and Twisted Metal.
