While waiting to know what the direction of the Naughty Dog saga will be in the world of video games, it seems that the HBO television series is still on wheels. We saw it very recently with the first image of the cast on the set. And now, as the days go by, we know new details of the production that will bring to the small screen – although televisions are getting bigger and bigger – the adventures of Ellie, Joel and company.

Craig mazin (Chernobyl), producer and screenwriter, has revealed in an interview at the podcast Scriptnotes that the first season of The Last of Us series on HBO will consist of 10 episodes. Within the average of other similar productions, although at the moment there are no details of how long each chapter will last, but we can bet between 40 or 60 minutes in length.
Mazin has given more details in the conversation, ensuring that there will be five different directors for the two episodes. We know the names of Jasmila Zbanic and Ali Abbasi, but the rest of the members have not been made official. The scriptwriter also ensures that the first 4 chapters are already written. Another unknown that remains to be resolved is how much the series will temporarily cover. Whether it will run through the entire original The Last of Us or stay somewhere in between; They already anticipated that they would narrate more stories parallel to the video game.
Now, we just have to wait and see if in these weeks, while the series is being filmed, they release any new official details. As you know, the actor Pedro Pascal will be the one who gives life to Joel, while Bella Ramsey will do the same with Ellie.
