In this TV adaptation of the 2013 video game of the same name, a mutated fungus is introduced to the people of Jakarta, Indonesia, and quickly spreads into a global pandemic, making this sci-fi show feel a little too realistic. Those infected are taken over by the parasite and turn into deadly zombie-like creatures.

Don’t write this off as just another zombie show. Trust us — you’re going to want to see what all the hype surrounding The Last of Us TV series is all about.
