6 Things You Didn’t Know About 'The Last of Us'

There's more to this post-apocalyptic hit than just zombies.

This article contains spoilers.

There are 21 million people who watch The Last Of Us every week – and that’s just in the US. The HBO series has in only a few short weeks become the biggest show on television, bringing in an audience beyond those who were familiar with the story from the video game that the show is based on.

One of the reasons why The Last Of Us has become so popular is that the story goes far beyond the zombies and post-apocalyptic terror that the marketing relies on. At the heart of the television show is the story of an unlikely pair: Joel, still grieving the death of his teenage daughter Sarah on the first day of the outbreak, and Ellie, the young woman whose safety he has been charged with protecting. The two must traverse a terrifying US America that's crawling with Infected people (or worse) and over time their bond grows deeper.

As the first season draws to a close, we thought we’d do a rundown of some interesting key facts you might not know.
