The Last of Us: the first season will have 10 episodes

The plot should be very faithful to that of the videogame released in 2013 on PlayStation 3 although some passages and different dialogues promise to be significantly different from what is seen in the title developed by Naughty Dog.

The pilot will be directed by Kantemir Balagov, while the remaining episodes by Jasmila Žbanić and Ali Abbasi. The videogame franchise remains one of the most profitable at Sony and the second chapter, released in 2020, even beat The Witcher 3 as the most awarded game ever.
