The first season of The Last of Us TV series, which will arrive on HBO Max, will consist of ten episodes, directed by five different directors. The budget made available for this production is truly massive, with hundreds of millions of dollars earmarked for each episode.
The latest rumors speak of the concrete possibility of even producing 7-8 seasons, which would mean how each of the two chapters of the videogame saga could be adapted for four seasons. However, we will have to wait some more time to know more details of the ambitious show.
