As of today we have on HBO Max the first full season of The Last of Us, the brilliant adaptation of the Naughty Dog video game made by its creator, Neil Druckmannext to Craig Mazinthe person in charge of the also television jewel Chernobyl.
Starring Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey, The Last of Us plot revolves around Joel, a man who lost his daughter twenty years ago after the outbreak of an outbreak caused by a fungus known as cordyceps that infects and turns humans into dangerous killing machines.
Together with his partner Tess, they are commissioned to transfer as discreetly as possible to the base of the Fireflies to Elliea 14-year-old girl who, for some reason, is immune to the fungus, making her humanity’s possible hope for everything to go back to the way it was before.
Throughout their journey Joel and Ellie will not only have to deal with the infected, but also with dangerous groups of looters while little by little they are strengthening a special bond between them.
Although for many fans the serie from HBO is more than up to par, others have not been so happy, hoping to find a little more action in a series focused on a post-apocalyptic world full of infected.
Although in the game we find numerous moments with the infected, in the series we have chosen to focus more on the emotional charge of its protagonistssince it is the main premise of the plot of the video game.
Season 2 of The Last of Us will feature “many more infected”
THE LAST OF US is a new gem for HBO MAX. Impressions of the series without spoilers!
At a recent press event attended by Screen Rant, Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin shared some details about the upcoming season 2 of The Last of Us.
During the talk, Mazin addressed the reasoning behind the combination of action and character development in season 1 while also dropping the appearance of “a lot more infected” in season 2.
“At times, we had to make decisions about how we wanted to present the infected. I will say that even though we had a green light for a season of television, Neil and I felt that we couldn’t do a season of television without considering what would come next.
There’s more The Last of Us to come, and I think the balance isn’t always just about episode, or even episode to episode, but season to season. It is very possible that there will be many more infected later, and perhaps of different types.
The creators of The Last of Us comment on what we can expect from the second season, cast, duration…
But within the episodes that we were concentrating on, I think ultimately we generally emphasized the power of relationships and tried to find meaning within the moments of action, so there may be less action than some people think. they wanted.
Because we couldn’t necessarily find meaning to enough of it, or worry that it would be repetitive. After all, you’re not playing it, you’re watching it.and although many people like to see the gameit should be a little more focused and useful when we put it on TV,” Mazin said.
Do you think that The Last of Us series would have needed an episode more focused on the infected or is the season of The Last of Us perfect? HBO Max as is? Tell us your opinions in our comments section.
