The Last of Us show is considered more of a thriller than a horror show. But it does have a lot of intense moments.

One thing to note about the show is that the infected don't appear on the screen too often. Instead, the show focuses on how Joel and Ellie deal with the human survivors in this post-apocalyptic world.

Is The Last of Us Suitable for Kids to Watch?

Since The Last of Us is a zombie apocalypse action-drama, there are some scenes that are not suitable for minors.

The show has a lot of violence with the use of firearms and sharp weapons. And as a result, there are scenes that have bloody and gory details of humans, children included.

The Last of Us is not recommended for kids to watch.

The HBO Max show focuses on the events that took place in the first game, which was released in 2013. This means that the show likely tackles on the history of the outbreak and how Joel and Ellie meet.

If you feel like the show is intriguing, you may want to play the two sequel games so you can keep up on the story once more seasons are released.
