The Last Of Us Will Stick To Source Material, Unlike GOT

The creators of the highly anticipated HBO adaptation of the popular video game "The Last of Us" have already assured fans that it will not encounter the same issues as another HBO tentpole.

The Show's Co-creator Neil Druckmann, who also developed the game, told The Hollywood Reporter that the series will remain faithful to the source material.

He contrasted this with "Game of Thrones," which ran out of source material when it caught up with the unfinished book series, resulting in a contentious final season that got a series-worst critic score of 55% and a series-worst audience score of 30% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Druckmann stated in an interview that "We have no plans to tell any stories beyond adapting the games."  "We won't run into the same issue as 'Game of Thrones' since 'Part II' doesn't end on a cliffhanger," he added, referring to the game's sequel, "The Last of Us Part II."

On January 15, "The Last of Us" premieres on HBO and HBO Max. It stars Pedro Pascal as Joel, who is tasked with escorting Bella Ramsey's Ellie across a post-apocalyptic United States.
