The plot

A species of cordyceps fungus has infected humanity, turning those who inhale its toxic spores into infected zombie-like animals. ‘The Last of Us’ comes to life 20 years after this happened. The protagonist Joel lives in a quarantine zone in Boston, Massachusetts, one of the few points of civilization still under martial law and extreme control. Joel and his partner in crime Tess, in between dealing, stealing, and smuggling to maintain a standard of comfort, find themselves escorting a little girl named Ellie out of an oppressive quarantine zone. This series looks to respect the twilight and at times horror style of the famous video game through a brutal, harrowing and adrenaline-fueled journey.
