The Last of Us Release Schedule: The Last of Us is finally here after a very long wait, and fans can’t wait to see what happens in the upcoming episode. Fans have already put up some compelling hypotheses about what will happen in the HBO series, which is based on the enormously successful video games of the same name. The show has taken the world by storm, getting raving reviews and exceeding everyone’s expectations.
The Last of Us, starring Game of Thrones great Bella Ramsey as teen Ellie and The Mandalorian’s Pedro Pascal as bereaved father Joel, takes place in a world where an epidemic has turned people into zombie-like animals. Twenty years after the outbreak, Joel is entrusted with getting Ellie across the US because she has a secret that might alter the course of history. However, there are many risks along the way, including the infected.
The Last of Us was co-created by Neil Druckmann, who also worked on Chernobyl, and Craig Mazin. The series is credited for being true to the games, but the creators acknowledged that there were times when they “deviated” from the source material.

The Last of Us Plot
The Last of Us is a post-apocalyptic action/horror drama. Twenty years hence, a lethal strain of the cordyceps fungus penetrates humanity, infecting anyone who breathe in its spores with an animalistic, zombie-like disease. In the first game, the player controls Joel. A gangster named Joel resides in Boston, Massachusetts, one of the few pockets of civilisation left under martial control and constant surveillance. Boston is under quarantine.
To maintain a standard of comfort in even the worst situations, Joel and Tess often steal, sell, smuggle, and threaten people. In the words of the official synopsis, “What starts as a mission quickly becomes a violent, heartbreaking journey, as they both must go across the US and depend on each other for survival.” They are compelled to smuggle a little girl named Ellie out of the quarantine region.
