HBO has brought an accurate adaption of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us, making a lot of noise in the gaming community. According to recent stats, The Last of Us returned to steam’s top wishlist as the sales jumped to 238% in January after the show’s premiere on HBO Max.
Traditionally, the Last of Us premiers every Sunday at 6 p.m. PT (9 p.m. ET) on HBO Max. Except for one time when episode 5 was released earlier on Friday to avoid the Super Bowl Sunday conflict. Well, the next of the schedule is pretty straightforward

Where is The Last of Us Storyline Headed?
The Last of Us started as a perfect adaption of the game, with a deviated storyline ever since after the events of episode 3. If we talk about the game vs. show difference, HBO did a good job bringing our favorite characters on the reel and adding some new characters like Kathleen from episode 4.
The show brought the spotlight on the hidden stories and unanswered questions from the game, which made the show pretty exciting yet a bit unpredictable from the sets of events that took in the original game’s story. I hope that the show remains true to the original game by only amplifying the original story instead of changing the plot completely from the game.
Is it Necessary to Play the Last of Us Game to Watch the Show?
No, it’s not necessary to play the Last of Us game before watching the show. The way HBO portrays the storyline, I can say that even if you have played the game, there won’t be many spoilers, and you can still watch the show with the same suspense and hype.
In case you’re curious, HBO is adapting the storyline from the original The Last of Us from 2013, and there is a PC remake scheduled to release on March 28th, 2023, with enhanced graphics.
The Last of US season 1 has been a super hit since its release. I’d say it’s a great way to promote the game and the TV series to get more audience from the audience at the same time. I hope the show continues to thrill according to our expectations.
