The show is being developed by Neil Druckmann and "Chernobyl" director Craig Mazin. Johan Renck will direct the first episode.
Meanwhile, Druckmann is asking subscribers which of the actors they see in the lead roles. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who played Jaime Lannister in Game of Thrones, remains the favorite for the role of Joel. And in place of Ellie, they offer to take Kaitlyn Dever.
