Storm Reid will be Riley in the series of The Last of Us that prepares HBO

One of the most promising adaptations of video games for television that are being developed at the moment is without a doubt the series of The Last of Us being prepared by HBO, which will star Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) in the role of Joel and Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones) as Ellie.

Riley already has an actress

Now Storm Reid, one of the stars of Euphoria, just confirmed that he will also be in the series and that be in charge of giving life to Riley, one of the characters we met in The Last of Us: Left Behind, the downloadable expansion of the first installment that allowed us to delve into Ellie’s past.

How can you intuit this announcement seems to confirm that the series will also cover part of what happened in this DLC with various flashbacks or some chapter of its own dedicated exclusively to it, which should be good news, since it was an expansion that was highly applauded by both the public and the critics.

An ambitious project

The series of The Last of Us the HBO take us to relive the events that took place in the original game of the saga, so we can once again enjoy the journey that Joel and Ellie made in a world that succumbed to a zombie apocalypse because of a strange fungus that turns human beings into monsters without reason.

The project is co-produced by Sony Pictures Television, PlayStation Productions, World Games and Naughty Dog. In fact, Neil Druckmann, the creative director and writer of both games, is also heavily involved in the production of the series, which should ensure maximum fidelity to the source material. The cast is rounded out by Gabriel Luna as Tommy, Merle Dandridge as Marlene, Jeffrey Pierce as Perry, Anna Torv as Tess, Nico Parker as Sarah, Murray Bartlett as Frank, and Nick Offerman as Bill. At the moment, it is not known what its release date will be.
