Adapting video games to TV and movie screens has been nothing short of a challenge. With so many failed attempts to adapt critically acclaimed franchises, the ones that do pull through are something special. The Last of Us adopted the gritty story of the game of the same name. With Pedro Pascal taking up the role of Joal and Bella Ramsey becoming Ellie, the main cast couldn't have been in better hands. The script itself was stellar, getting it critic and viewer approval upon release. The other nominees were also made up of industry titans. This included The Super Mario Bros. Movie, which sold out theaters for weekends after it's release. For The Last of Us to overcome these opponents is an incredibly special moment for the team.

You can watch The Last of Us on HBO Max, Hulu, Prime Video, YouTube, and select other streaming services. The first season is nine episodes long and fans are the second season is expected to debut in 2025. With luck, the full story of the games will be covered and fans look forward to the continued success of the series.
