Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone to the Fireflies, a cure-searching organization. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey, as they both must traverse across the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.”
Will The Last of Us arrive on Netflix?
If you’ve been waiting for The Last of Us to arrive on Netflix, then we would like to be honest with you and break the bad news.

Based upon the reports, The Last of Us is considered to be one of the largest television production series in Canadian history, crossing CA$ 200 million in revenue expected for Alberta. Druckmann states that the first season will cover the conjectures that occurred in the first game. This points to the good news, that soon there will be another season of The Last of Us.
