While everyone is still basking in the glow of the recently released The Last of Us Part II, fans of the series have something else exciting to look forward to. HBO recently announced that Chernobyl creator Craig Mazan was developing a series for the network, and new tidbits are starting to trickle out concerning the direction the series might take.
In a recent BBC Radio 5 interview, Mazan had the following to say about developing the story as a TV series:
I’m working on The Last of Us with Neil Druckmann… what we are doing is we have essentially mapped it all out, at least the first cycle of it. Next up, we are going to start writing.
I think fans of something worry that, when the property gets licenced to someone else, those people don’t really understand it, or are going to change it. In this case, I’m doing it with the guy who did it, and so the changes that we’re making are designed to fill things out and expand, not to undo, but rather to enhance. We are creating the new and reimagining what is already there for a new format. It’s a dream come true for me.
With Naught Dog’s Neil Druckmann, who directed and wrote The Last Of Us and its sequel, involved as a producer, fans should rest easy that the source material is going to be treated with the utmost respect.
Are there any elements of the game you would like to see explored further in the upcoming HBO show? What are you most worried about them not getting right? Let us know over on Twitter!
