After being a hit with fans as a video game, The Last Of Us is now set to be turned into a TV series.

It has been announced Craig Mazin, creator of hit series Chernobyl, will team up with the writer and creative director of the game, Neil Druckmann, to adapt the game into a HBO series.

The series will be the first television series from PlayStation Productions, who will be co-producing the game with Sony Pictures Television and game developer Naughty Dog.

Since its release in 2013, The Last Of Us’ narrative of a post-apocalyptic world in which characters Joel and Ellie begin a gripping journey of survival proved to be a hit with fans.
