The Last Of Us Showrunner Reveals How The Pandemic Influenced The Series

Craig Mazin explains how the 2020 pandemic impacted The Last of Us series and why the Cordyceps pandemic is even more deadly. The Last Of Us is set in a world ravaged by a fungal pandemic that wipes out the majority of the population and has no known cure. Those infected by the Cordycep fungus not only die but are then controlled by the fungus turning into zombies known as Clickers. The original game was released in 2013, seven years before the world was hit by the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the general public has a much better understanding of pandemics, although this series deals with a fungal pandemic instead of a viral one.
