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.
