Movies based on video games don't have the best track record, but TV shows based on video games still have a relatively clean slate.

There's an endless number of video game adaptations coming down the pipe, including big-name projects like Amazon's Fallout series and Paramount's Halo TV show. Though none may be more anticipated than HBO's adaptation of The Last of Us.

HBO announced its The Last of Us project over a year ago and the show has been picking up steam as it heads into filming. While details are still thin on the ground, here's everything we do know about the series so far.

Who's involved?

The Last of Us and The Last of Us 2 are beloved games, so meddling with them in any way would be quite a risk for HBO. However, there are a few positive signs that this adaptation is set to be a good one.

Drew Barrymore releasing a cookbook

  Drew Barrymore releasing a cookbook Drew Barrymore is releasing a cookbook with chef Pilar Valdes, which will be titled ‘Rebel Homemaker: Food, Family, Life’ and does not currently have a release date.The ‘Charlie’s Angels’ star has teamed up with chef Pilar Valdes to release her first-ever cookbook, which will be titled ‘Rebel Homemaker: Food, Family, Life’.

For starters, The Last of Us game director and Naughty Dog co-president, Neil Druckmann, is onboard as an executive producer. There's pretty much no one else in the world who knows The Last of Us games like Druckmann, so it's in safe hands there.

He's also working with a long-time fan of the games and award-winning Chernobyl writer, Craig Mazin, who we know can write a damn good TV show.

The series has hired relatively unknown directors so far. Kantemir Balagov (Beanpole) is helming the pilot episode and Jasmila Zbanic (Quo Vadis, Aida) and Ali Abbasi (Border) also taking episodes in the series.

Gustavo Santaolalla, who gave us The Last of Us' excellent soundtrack, will also be back to compose music for the show.

HBO itself has a strong track record of producing high-quality genre shows, including Game of Thrones, Westworld and Watchmen. Here's hoping the studio's breadth of experience follows through here. Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions are also on board behind the scenes.

Will the TV show be different to the games?

Many fans can attest to the fact that The Last of Us games are already very cinematic, in terms of acting, narrative and visuals. So, translating this into a TV show shouldn't be that hard, right?

This is the plot synopsis according to the HBO announcement:

Gallery: '90s sitcoms worth re-watching (Espresso)

a woman holding a cat: Today’s TV viewers might only be familiar with the dark Netflix series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, but the original family sitcom starring Melissa Joan Hart as the supernatural Sabrina Spellman should not be forgotten. As both a teen coming-of-age story and a silly comedy, the series was entertaining and magical. Co-starring Caroline Rhea and Beth Broderick as Sabrina’s aunts and witch mentors, the series also featured guest appearances from quintessential '90s icons Britney Spears and *NSYNC.

The story takes place twenty years after modern civilisation has been destroyed. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey, as they both must traverse across the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.

That sure does sound like The Last of Us.

The announcement also notes that the series will "cover the events of the original game" with the "possibility of additional content" based on The Last of Us 2.

Mike Kerr: Success created a lot of paranoia for me

  Mike Kerr: Success created a lot of paranoia for me Royal Blood's Mike Kerr battled with paranoia and couldn't tell who was his friend or foe when the duo shot to fame in 2014.The 31-year-old musician - who is one half of rock duo Royal Blood alongside Ben Thatcher - has admitted he would hate to be "can't-go-outside famous" because not being able to tell who is "real" would be "extremely toxic" for him.

Neil Druckmann revealed in an interview with IGN that the first season of the show will cover the events of the first game.

Druckmann said things in the show will stick pretty closely to the game for the most part. However, some things will differ greatly from the game due to the differences between mediums.

"Some of my favourite episodes so far have deviated greatly from the story, and I can’t wait for people to see them,” he said. Whether the audience agrees will be a different question.

Should there be another season of The Last of Us we can assume that will take us into the events of Part II. Given there's a five-year time gap between games that leaves plenty of room to expand upon those lost years in the TV show.

Joel and Ellie are incredibly popular and well-written characters. They were portrayed by Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson in both video games, but neither actor will be carrying on their character in the TV show.

Celebs who grant wishes with Make-A-Wish

  Celebs who grant wishes with Make-A-Wish For many years, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has given critically ill children the opportunity to make their dreams come true. Since 1980, many famous people have supported the organization and taken part in granting wishes to those children, many of them sadly passing away after living incredible moments with their idols. In this gallery we look at some of the most giving celebs, and some particular stories that might even make you shed a tear or two. Click through and get to know more about these beautiful stars and what they have done for their fans.

Instead, we have Game of Thrones stars Bella Ramsay as Ellie and Pedro Pascal as Joel.

Ramsay seems to be a perfect fit given her breakout performance as Lyanna Mormont basically stole the show. She was able to bring both fire and vulnerability to her role and we're sure to see her take more of that to the role of Ellie.

Pascal has similarly spent plenty of time shepherding a young companion across the galaxy in The Mandalorian so we know he can pull off the reluctant dad role.

We're still waiting on quite a few key characters to be cast, but we do know that Joel's brother, Tommy, will be played by Terminator: Dark Fate star Gabriel Luna.

The Last of Us TV show: release date

Filming for HBO's The Last of Us is set to take place from July 2021 through to June 2022 in Calgary, Canada according to Collider. Based on that, expect to be waiting a long time for that first episode to drop.

This filming schedule signals a late 2022 or early 2023 release at best. We also have no idea how many episodes make up the first season, but HBO was quick to put in a full-season order.

The Last of Us will debut on HBO and HBO Max in the US, which makes it a likely candidate for Binge here in Australia.
