HBO has announced a companion podcast for its upcoming The Last of Us TV series. The podcast is called… The Last of Us Podcast, and it premieres on Sunday, January 15 alongside the show’s debut.
New episodes of the podcast will be released each Sunday with each new chapter of the show for a total of nine installments. Here is a trailer for the podcast.
The Last of Us Podcast is hosted by Troy Baker, who played Joel in Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us game series. He’ll sit down with series creators Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann and will do a “scene-by-scene deep dive of each episode.”
“Fans of the series and the game alike will have the opportunity to be flies on the wall as the trio discuss their personal relationships to the iconic game, their experience in adapting it for television, and behind-the-scenes stories,” reads a line from the podcast’s description.
Companion podcasts are nothing new for HBO, as the network also has similar podcasts for shows like Chernobyl, Succession, Lovecraft Country, and Hacks, among others.
HBO’s The Last of Us premieres Sunday, January 15. It stars Pedro Pascal as Joel and Bella Ramsey as Ellie. Both appeared on another HBO TV series, Game of Thrones, but had never met before a Last of Us sexual harassment training Zoom course.
