The Last of Us HBO series release date is set for January 16 on Disney+ Hotstar in India -Newzflash

The release date for the Last of Us HBO series is official. In a tweet, game developer Naughty Dog confirmed rumors from earlier this week, saying that HBO’s live-action TV adaptation will be out on January 15 at 6pm PT/9pm ET across HBO and HBO Max. In India, the series will be up for streaming on Disney+ Hotstar on January 16, 2023. A date is not known, but it will most likely be after it finishes airing in the US. The game’s original writer, Neil Druckmann, has directed an episode of the HBO series and is collaborating with Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) to help write the post-apocalyptic narrative in a new format. Both also serve as executive producers on The Last of Us television series.

The nine-episode first season of The Last of Us TV series follows similar plot beats to the original 2013 PlayStation video game, set 20 years after modern civilization fell into ruins. When a tough survivor named Joel (Pedro Pascal) is tasked with smuggling a teenage girl Ellie (Bella Ramsey) out of the quarantine zone, the job eventually takes a brutal turn as they encounter hordes of zombies and hostile survivors. Traversing an infected, post-apocalyptic United States, the pair eventually adopt a father-daughter relationship, deal with grief, and come to terms with the value of life.

The Last of Us TV series release date was leaked on Wednesday when the HBO Max store page for the show accidentally listed it on their brochure. VGC confirmed via their sources that the studio accidentally jumped the gun and planned an official reveal this week.

Now, HBO Max has also revealed a poster for the show, showing the decadent, overgrown streets as protagonists Joel and Ellie venture forward. In the distance you can see the iconic collapsed building, a path leading outside the city. But in the original game, fellow smuggler Tess was part of this journey – must be a design choice for the poster.

A teaser for The Last of Us TV series was released in September, offering glimpses of the bleak photography and world elements that resembled the original video game. It was also the first time we were introduced to Anna Torv’s (Mindhunter) Tess, albeit for a brief preview, along with memorable stealth segments and deadly clickers lurking in the dark.

The series also stars Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) as unlikely ally Bill, Gabriel Luna as Tommy, Merle Dandridge as Marlene, the leader of the Fireflies, and Jeffrey Pierce as Perry. Original voice actors Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson are also set to appear on the HBO show.

The Last of Us TV series will premiere on January 16, 2023 on Disney+ Hotstar in India. Regions with HBO/HBO Max available can stream the show on January 15, 2023 from 6pm PT/9pm ET.
