The Last of Us is a hit series on PlayStation and is going to make its live-action debut on HBO Max in the near future. Naughty Dog is heavily involved with the project that’ll explore a very different kind of post-apocalypse. We’ve gotten glimpses from the set, one scene even teasing the events that kick off the journey that Pedro Pascal‘s Joel will undergo throughout the series. Luckily, Reddit user Sith_Reaper28 also shared some more set photos that highlight how dedicated the team is to bring the post-apocalypse to life.
These photos include various cars and busses overgrown, as they were left in that spot once the fungal infection altered people forever. They went all out to add practical elements that make this world truly come to life. These pictures are taken in Edmonton, Canada but the vehicles have plates for Alberta and Massachusetts, as highlighted by the Redditor. You can check out some of the images right here:
The set photos are quite impressive and it looks like they’re going all out with the post-apocalyptic atmosphere. We still haven’t gotten a look at the Clickers or other various spore-based zombified humans, which they might be trying to keep hidden as much as possible. Their designs might get tweaked to fit the live-action adaptation. It’s interesting that the buildings around haven’t been touched. So, they either were still building the set, or they’ll tackle some elements with visual effects. Still, it’s great to see them recreate these elements practically and respect whoever had to make sure the cars’ windows look like that.
