Gamers who had their first playthrough of The Last of Us when it first dropped in June of 2013 will know that it was clear that they were experiencing one of the better, more immersive stories out there told in any form. It was a no-brainer that the game would make for an incredible book, movie or show and while it took nearly ten years for the latter to materialize, the world is now aware. Despite some initial cautiousness about how the show would deviate from the game and with shows based on video games having a complicated history The Last of Us grabbed the hearts of everyone that watched it, filling them with joy, then breaking them only to fill them with joy once again. The two months that it aired had fans on the edge of their seats weekly and with the second season greenlit but not expected until the top of 2025 at the earliest and covering the second game, we’re here to help you fill the gap in your heart.
