The newly episodic release of HBO’s ‘The Last of Us’, based on the popular video game series, has already began receiving massive acclaims from fans and TV viewers worldwide.
The highly anticipated series debuted on the 15th of January in the US, introducing Joel and Ellie, as portrayed by Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey.
And fans are already buzzing as to how well the actors bring these iconic video game characters to life. The series follows these two characters and other survivors as they traverse a zombie-infested US.
The first episode alone was a gut-punch, managing to build a character up in one half of a 1 hour and a half episode, with the actress in question already flooded with applause and acclaim.
HBO is of course known for Game of Thrones, based off the books by George R.R. Martin, so hopes are high that ‘The Last of Us’ could be the next big television event, possibly even matching other acclaimed zombie series ‘The Walking Dead.’ We’ll have to watch and see!
Told across nine episodes, the weekly releases will be available on HBO for US viewers and on Sky Atlantic for UK viewers.
