Craig Mazin, writer and producer of The Last of Us for HBO, tweeted that he will share some details of the show soon. Neil Druckmann also appeared in the comments below the post and wrote only “soon”. He also participates in the creation of the show.
Now the tandem is writing the script.
Expect a small portion of The Last of Us news in the near future. We are working hard on the script and some other stuff.
It is possible that the showrunner is also hinting at casting for the lead roles.
The series is expected to be based on the first game. The creators set for themselves the goal of expanding and complementing the universe, showing it in a new format, but not rewriting it.
