2023 marks the year that the video game adaptation curse was officially vanquished, and we have HBO’s The Last of Us to thank for that. Adapting esteemed video game developer Naughty Dog’s multi-game of the year-winning masterpiece is no easy task, mainly due to the game’s beloved stories and characters and a passionate fanbase to defend them. Before the show’s release, there was reasonable apprehension among fans, given that live-action video game adaptations are notorious for being inaccurate and downright unwatchable at worst. That being said, as many fans of the show know, HBO’s The Last of Us is finally a video game adaptation done right.
In fact, The Last of Us show could easily serve as a lesson to all adaptations. The Emmy-bound series was clearly made by a cast and crew who love and respect the original source material, but HBO’s hit also isn’t afraid to deviate from the game in ways that make sense. From Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie’s (Bella Ramsey) infectious chemistry to the terrifyingly accurate Clicker zombies, not to mention a marvelous reinvention of Bill (Nick Offerman) and Frank’s (Murray Barlett) relationship, the series has already made its mark on history as the best video game show adaptation ever made.
Judging from positive reviews and incredibly high ratings, critics and audiences everywhere seem to agree. Perhaps noticing the success of the show, HBO has already greenlit a second season before Season 1 even concluded. The show’s viewers are probably ecstatic by the prospect of Joel and Ellie returning to HBO Max, and suffice it to say, we here at Collider are pretty excited to see what’s in store for these characters. To find out all the details for the next chapter in The Last of Us saga, here is everything we know so far about The Last of Us Season 2.
