HBO's The Last Of Us Season One Is Ten Episodes Long

However, we've yet to actually see just how much of The Last of Us' story is being covered within this first season. While we know this'll reach into events from the first game in season 1, potentially stretching into Part II for a second, that remains purely speculative.

In the meantime, we're slowly getting further details about this adaptation's cast. While Game of Thrones stars Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey are playing lead characters, Joel and Ellie, Nico Parker's just been confirmed to play Joel's daughter, Sarah. We'll keep you informed with further updates as we learn more.
