David Fleming (Hillbilly ElegyThe Unforgivable, South of Heaven, Blue Planet IIThe Perfect Guy) has joined Gustavo Santaolalla to score the new HBO original series The Last of Us. Both composer are receiving full and equal “music by” billing (credited separately) in the opening titles sequence of the show developed by Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) & Neil Druckmann based on the video game of the same title and starring Pedro Pascal, Bella Ramsey, Gabriel Luna, Anna Torv, Murray Bartlett, Nico Parker, Nick Offerman, Storm Reid, Merle Dandridge, Melanie Lynskey, Jeffrey Pierce, Keivonn Woodard, Lamar Johnson, Graham Greene and Elaine Miles. The post-apocalyptic drama takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed and follows a hardened survivor who is hired to smuggle a 14-year-old girl out of an oppressive quarantine zone. Mazin & Druckmann are also executive producing the Sony Pictures Television production with Carolyn Strauss (Game of Thrones), Naughty Dogs’s Evan Wells, Asad Qizilbash, Carter Swan, as well as Rose Lam (The L Word). Santaolalla (who scored the original 2013 video game and its sequel) has previously been announced as the composer of the show back in 2020. The Last of Us will premiere this coming Sunday, January 15 on HBO and will also be available to stream on HBO Max.
