The Last Of Us HBO Series Production Beginning After Release Of TLoU Part 2
As the real world deals with a global pandemic with significant societal impact, gamers have looked to their favorite franchises for escape during this time. One such favorite franchise is The Last Of Us, which focuses on a different type of apocalypse, and recently surprised fans with the announcement of a new live action HBO TV series. Many have wondered though when production on the series would start, and how it might affect the release of The Last Of Us Part 2. Now, it seems that The Last Of Us HBO series will not begin until The Last Of Us Part 2 development is completed.
The Last Of Us HBO series writer and producer Craig Mazin recently released a new episode of his Scriptnotes podcast, on which he discusses the new project. According to Mazin, production will not begin on the new series until The Last Of Us Part 2 completes development and releases on PS4 in May. As Mazin says:
We can’t start on it right away because they’re still finishing up the second game, but we’re going to dig it in full, full earnest pretty soon.”
Series creator Neil Druckmann is leading the creative efforts for The Last Of Us Part 2, and is slated to serve as a writer and executive producer on The Last Of Us HBO series. As such, his availability on the series likely would not be at the needed attention level until the new game is released and done. While this still doesn’t give a set release window for the new HBO series, it does provide a better window on NaughtyDog’s involvement with the series. A clicking sound guide into an unknown room, if you will.
