The first video game centers on the relationship between a smuggler named Joel and 14-year-old Ellie, the latter of whom may be the key to curing the deadly pandemic that resulted in the post-apocalypse world of the game. Hired to smuggle Ellie out of a quarantine zone, Joel finds himself relying on the teenage girl just as much as she relies on him as they fight to survive on their journey across the United States.
The HBO is currently developing a television adaptation that will cover the events of the first game, with the upcoming sequel titled potentially serving as the basis for additional content. Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann will pen and executive the series.
