The Last of Us creator Neil Druckmann explains the HBO show’s timeline change


Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann has previously revealed that certain episodes of HBO’s upcoming adaptation of The Last of Us will “deviate greatly” from their source material. But, curiously, the timeline of Joel and Ellie’s on-screen adventure is in for a shake-up, too. 

In the game’s chronology, the Cordyceps pandemic erupts in 2013, with the main events of The Last of Us taking place twenty years later (i.e. 2033). But in the HBO series, proceedings kick off in 2003, with the bulk of the show’s story set in 2023 (as first revealed by The Last of Us’ promotional material (opens in new tab)).
