The Last of Us is returning very soon, but this time, in TV series form. The beloved video game series has now taken a turn for live-action dramatics thanks to HBO, and the new series starts very soon in the UK and US.

We’ve already reviewed HBO’s The Last of Us, and we said: “Fans of the games will enjoy spending more time with characters they already know, while people who have no experience with the game can go into a quality character drama with horror elements and come out the other side relieved that it’s not another The Walking Dead – whether you’ve played the games or not, you will actually care when characters die.”
