The Last of Us Series Casts Nick Offerman as Bill

HBO’s ‘The Last of Us’ series has cast Nick Offerman in a recurring role.

Offerman, best known for his role as Ron Swanson in the hit comedy series Parks and Recreation, will replace Con O’Neill, who exited the project due to a scheduling conflict. Offerman will play the character of Bill, a hardened survivalist who lives in an isolated town with his partner Frank, played by Murray Bartlett. Bill has a specialism for crafting weapons and traps that help keep various forms of the undead at bay.

While plot details remain sparse, the series will be based on the hugely popular video game of the same name by Naughty Dog. The Last of Us games take place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed by a deadly virus.

The series IMDB page writes its synopsis as follows:

Joel and Ellie, a pair connected through the harshness of the world they live in, are forced to endure brutal circumstances and ruthless killers on a trek across post-pandemic America.

No official release date has been announced, but filming has been taking place for a while now, so expect The Last of Us to hit screens sometime in 2022,
