The Last of Us Season 1 will climax as part of the HBO Max schedule for March 6-12.
On Sunday, March 12, the first part of Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie’s (Bella Ramsey) adventures will conclude. The live-action adaptation of the appreciated Naughty Dog video game was an instant hit and will return for another run in the future since the series tackled the events of the sole first game. Interestingly, The Last of Us Season 1 finale will air at the same time as the Academy Awards ceremony.
Joining Pascal and Ramsey are Gabriel Luna (Terminator: Dark Fate) as Tommy Miller, Nico Parker (Dumbo) as Joel’s daughter Sarah, Anna Torv (Mindhunter) as Tess, and Merle Dandridge (The Flight Attendant) as she reprised her role from the video games as Marlene, the leader of a resistance group known as the Fireflies. It also featured Jeffrey Pierce (Bosch) as Perry, Murray Bartlett (The White Lotus) as Frank, Con O’Neill (Chernobyl) as Bill, and Storm Reid (Euphoria) as Riley.
“The live-action series takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed,” reads the synopsis. “Joel and Ellie, a pair connected through the harshness of the world they live in, are forced to endure brutal circumstances and ruthless killers on a trek across a post-pandemic America.”
Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin and game writer Neil Druckmann executive produced and co-wrote The Last of Us live-action series. Druckmann also served as one of the directors. It is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television in association with PlayStation Productions. Executive producers are Carolyn Strauss, Naughty Dog President Evan Wells, and PlayStation Productions’ Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan.
