The critically-acclaimed first season of The Last of Us will come to an end with this weekend’s ninth episode. But after the season finale, HBO Max will air a special behind-the-scenes featurette titled Making of The Last of Us.
In the 30-second trailer for the special, the cast and creatives from the show will discuss how they adapted the beloved video game for television. The footage teases interviews with stars Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey, along with showrunners Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann. The featurette will also provide an inside look at some of the show’s signature moments, from the debut of the clickers in episode 2 to the epic invasion of the infected in episode 5.
Watch the trailer below.
