The Last of Us, the new HBO Max series, is an adaptation of the acclaimed game that is highly anticipated by fans. With many surprises coming, one of the stars of the production commented that the third episode should change the series completely.
With nine episodes announced for the first season, the series promises to explore the post-apocalyptic world in which Joel and Ellie survive.
In a recent interview, game and series actor Troy Baker revealed that he watched five episodes. He commented that the third will increase audience anticipation, changing the entire series for fans (via ScreenRant ).
Baker will play James, a character original to the series who is part of a more violent group of survivors.
“I saw up to episode five and, I can tell you now, you get to episode three, you’re done. Establishes in the first two episodes, he introduces you to the world if you have no idea what it is. It takes all your expectations and just throws them away,” he said.
The Last of Us premieres January 15, 2023, on HBO Max .
