With the first nights of the Emmys underway, HBO’s television series based on The Last of Us has so far picked up eight awards after receiving 24 nominations earlier last year, including both the Outstanding Guest Actor and Outstanding Guest Actress awards.
The former went to Nick Offerman, who portrayed Bill alongside Aussie actor Murray Bartlett’s Frank in the particularly special third episode of the series, while Storm Reid scored the latter for her performance as Riley Abel in the episode “Left Behind.”
Elsewhere, the show also picked up a number of creative arts awards, with more surely to come as the Emmys rolls out over the next week or so:
Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Comedy Or Drama Series
Outstanding Main Title Design
Outstanding Special Visual Effects In A Season Or A Movie
Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup
Outstanding Picture Editing For A Drama Series
Outstanding Sound Editing For A Comedy Or Drama Series
Recently, we learned that production on the second season of The Last of Us has been confirmed by showrunner Craig Mazin to start on February 12th, with the season premiere officially pegged for a 2025 release.
A 2025 release date gives fans and newcomers plenty of time to get through the recently-announced The Last of Us Part II Remastered, which launches on January 19th and features enhanced visuals for PS5 along with all-new content and game modes. Our full review for the remaster will be live on Wednesday, January 17th at 2AM AEDT.
