The Last of Us, the post-apocalyptic drama, is among the most popular series streaming online currently. It is set 20 years in the future, after a pandemic turns those who are infected into zombie-like creatures. It stars Pedro Pascal, who plays Joel Miller, a smuggler and hardened survivor who has to escort a teenager named Ellie (Bella Ramsey) across the US, who may be humanity’s last hope.
So far, only five episodes have been released on Disney+ Hotstar, and that has been more than enough to get many people hooked. But if the wait for Monday for a new episode gets a bit much and you feel like you need to get your zombie fix, then fret not, for we have a list of 7 movies and 7 series that you can watch for each day of the week while you wait for the next episode of The Last of Us.
