The Last of Us is one of the most coveted games of the last decade. The game, which took place in a post-apocalyptic setting, was one of the best games ever put out in the genre and went on to become a benchmark for other games to follow. Recently, HBO announced that it would be working on The Last of Us Show that would be adapted straight from the universe of the game. This was an announcement that brought smiles onto the faces of gamers around the world and was quite a big moment for fans of the franchise. Following the announcement, a lot of speculation regarding the Last of Us show has been done by the fans. And now, Gabriel Luna, star of the show, has announced that the show might be coming to the screen sooner, rather than later.

The Last of Us Show: Background About The Game
The Last of Us Show is based on the original video game by Naughty Dog that was released back in 2013 for the Playstation 3, and then later on for the Playstation 4 as a remastered version. The game took place in a post apocalyptic scenario where the world had been ravaged by the Cordyceps outbreak and turned the people into zombie like creatures. The game revolved around the characters Joel and Ellie, who made their way across the badlands to the supposed safety of the Fireflies, and to save Ellie. Joel was shown as a smuggler tasked with bringing Ellie across the country safely.
The game showed the culmination of a new father and daughter like relationship between the two characters, as they traveled across the country, and Joel saved Ellie from a number of troublesome elements along the way. It was a riveting story that changed the way people looked at video games forever. It went on to win multiple awards and remains a coveted title to this day. The story was unlike any other at the time, and was a big hit among gamers.

The Last of Us Show: About The Show
Talking about the Last of Us Show, from what we know so far, the show is going to be a direct adaptation of the game produced by Naughty Dog, and is going to lift elements straight out of the story. The first season of the show is going to be based around the events of the first game, and if there is a subsequent season, it is probably going to be based on The Last of Us II. Running across 10 episodes, the The Last of Us season 1 will incorporate the story of the first game into one small and neat package.
However, as with all shows, the story is not going to be a complete copy of that in the game but would be adapted and tweaked for showing on the screen. There is going to be content that was not included in the original game for a more show-like feel and a more poised and well-shaded story. All of that is already apparent from the fact that characters who were not in the game have already been recruited to act in the show. But that doesn’t mean that it is going to be an inauthentic story. Neil Druckmann, who is the executive producer and co-writer behind the show, was the brain behind The Last of Us, and his presence and involvement here ensure an authentic Last of Us experience.

The Last of Us Show: Cast
The Last of Us show is one that is going all out with its cast, and I’m truly pleased with the decisions that they have made here. In addition to casting characters that were not in the original game, some have been given roles that are bigger than those that were in the game and have been more fleshed out. This gives me a lot of confidence in the creative team behind the show.
The stars of the show here are Pedro Pascal, who will be playing the role of Joel from the first game, Bella Ramsey, who will play the role of Ellie, Gabriel Luna, who will play the role of Tommy (Joel’s brother), Nico Parker, who will play Joel’s daughter Sarah, Anna Torv as Tess, and Merle Dandridge as Marlene.
The casting decisions that have been made are really good according to me and I can definitely see the thought that has been put behind them. Each of the cast actors are amazing artists in their own right and the way that they are going to fit the roles also seems quite amazing. I am really excited to see Pedro Pascal play the role of the protective and tough Joel, and really look forward to seeing him in action.

The Last of Us Show: Coming Sooner Than Later?
The Last of Us Show is one of the most anticipated shows of this year, with a story that has been coveted for the better part of the decade, and a studio behind it that has never disappointed. But HBO has unfortunately not announced a release date for the show yet. But they have stated that the show would hit the screens sometime next year.
All of this, however, has been put into question following the statement of Gabriel Luna from the show. Luna, when asked about his role in the show, said, “Right now, my primary focus is The Last of Us. So excited to complete my work there on season one and then we’re going to have a really fun adventure there. I look forward to everyone having an opportunity to check that out whenever it may come out. I’m not in the scheduling department, but it’d be sooner than later.”
This statement gave rise to a lot of speculation regarding the release date of the show. HBO had initially announced that The Last of Us Show was going to be released sometime next year, but this statement could undermine all that, and we could potentially be seeing the Last of Us Show on TV this year. That would certainly be something I would be really welcoming of.
