The Last of Us Part II is not the only major project set in the Naughty Dog–designed universe currently in development, as a big-budget TV series based on the award-winning original game is coming to HBO, the home of Watchmen and Westworld.
The brand-new TV series was announced earlier today and will officially replace the previously planned big-screen adaptation of the beloved PlayStation exclusive. The upcoming limited series is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television in association with PlayStation Productions as the latter's first-ever TV-only project.
As revealed by Sony, The Last of Us will be brought to the small screen by Craig Mazin, the renowned creator of last year's worldwide phenomenon Chernobyl. Additionally, the writer and creative director of both video games, Neil Druckmann, will co-write and executive produce the aforementioned TV series with Mazin.
"From the first time I sat down to talk with Craig I was equally blown away by his approach to narrative and his love and deep understanding of The Last of Us," Druckmann explained in a statement.
As a reminder, Sony is also working on a full-blown movie adaptation of Naughty Dog's Uncharted series.
