It’s been revealed that HBO is making a The Last of Us TV show and Chernobyl’s creator, Craig Mazin will be the series’ showrunner.
There seems to be a theme going on in the entertainment industry at the moment.
For years we’ve been asking ourselves when will the first genuinely good video game movie be made.
However, it looks like we were looking in the wrong medium.
It turns out that video games would make for excellent television shows.
We’ve just seen The Witcher become widely popular on Netflix.
Before that, they made the Castlevania animated show which is incredible.
We’re now learning that HBO is going to be making a The Last of Us TV show.
The Last Of Us Is Being Made Into A TV Show!

According to Naughty Dog’s tweet, the show will have the game’s creator Neil Druckmann as one of its showrunners.
He’ll be joined by Chernobyl creator, Craig Mazin, which sounds pretty incredible to me.
Naughty Dog is the company being The Last Of Us video game which is a PS4 exclusive.
They also made the Uncharted game franchise which is having its own issues in coming to the big screen.
Hopefully, The Last of Us TV show on HBO will do the game justice.
The Last of Us 2 is about to be released on PS4.
