The Last of Us TV show has finally wrapped shooting, and writer Craig Mazin confirmed. Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic action and adventure-based game The Last of Us has received universal acclaim, including other many prestigious game awards since it debuted in 2013. Its sequel, The Last of Us Part II, also gathered very popular views among fans, with the achievement of the original game sparking Sam Raimi to develop a film adaptation of the story.
Though the movie idea with Sam Raimi didn’t work out, HBO ultimately walked in and ruled a televised adaptation of this into a series. The show will be the network’s very first which will be based on a video game genre and it is speculated to come out in 2023.
HBO’s The Last of Us Finishes Filming
After compiling the main cast, which includes actors like Pedro Pascal, Bella Ramsey, and Gabriel Luna as original game characters Joel, Ellie, and Tommy, HBO’s The Last of Us started shooting in Alberta, Canada in July 2021. The show is being praised as one of the massive production in the country, with each of its 10 episodes rambling a $15 million allotment. Before this week, the executive producer Neil Druckmann, who wrote and directed the original video game, posted a photo from the series showing Pascal and Ramsey as Joel and Ellie in one of the game’s classic story roles. Now, Druckmann’s colleague Mazin has shared another update from the show.
The shooting now wrapping up, and fans expect more promotional points to cover in the coming months, including teasers, first-look photos, and trailers. Possibly this will take some time but the series needs to work on the VFX for the different classes of post-production. The good news is that DNEG, the computer animation company that worked on Avengers: Endgame is now working on the visual effects for The Last of Us, so fans are even more expecting.
In addition, some of the changes are on work, to allow a better serialization. This bombardment of content from the set of The Last of Us over the last year has given fans some sort of ideas about the TV adaptation, making it easy to what degree they would bend their loyalty to the games.
The series is expected to release on HBO in early 2023.
