The The Last of Us HBO show already has one of the creators of Chernobyl behind it, but more have signed on.
Chernobyl’s creator, Craig Mazin, is the main creator behind the upcoming The Last of Us HBO series. We already know that Mazin, together with Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann, will be working on crafting the show.
The acclaimed TV director said he may not be as involved with The Last of Us as he was with Chernobyl, but left it open. With that in mind, Renck revealed that he’s in weekly calls with Mazin and Druckmann to figure out how to adapt well-defined characters like those of Joel and Ellie to TV.
Renck has a long history of directing episodes of acclaimed shows, including Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Vikings, and Bates Motel. Outside of the fact it’ll cover the story of the first game, there’s a lot we still don’t know about the series.
