Last Of Us Composer Working On The HBO Show

Gustavo Santaolalla is also composing the music for The Last of Us Part II.


Director Neil Druckmann has announced that Argentinian composer Gustavo Santaolalla, the man responsible for the music of The Last of Us, will lend his musical talents to The Last of Us HBO show.

As noted, Santaolalla composed the music for Naughty Dog's 2013 critically acclaimed action-adventure game The Last of Us, which won two awards and was nominated for several others just for its score alone. In addition to The Last of Us, Santaolalla also composed the music for films and TV shows such as Brokeback Mountain, Into the Wild, Making a Murderer, Narcos: Mexico, and more.

Santaolalla will also return for The Last of Us Part 2, which launches on PlayStation 4 on May 29. [Update: The Last of Us 2 has been delayed indefinitely due to the coronavirus.] You can check out our The Last of Us Part 2 pre-order guide to learn more about the extra bonuses.

Druckmann announced that he's collaborating with Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin to bring The Last of Us to HBO as a limited television series. There is a possibility of TLOU2 content appearing in this new HBO TV show, and Druckmann recently teased that some characters from the upcoming sequel might show up.
