I bet it won't have Joel or Ellie in it. It'll probably just be based in that universe, which is OK, but I'd love to see those two in a show.

Could see it either way, but more than likely they won't retell that story. There needs to be at least a cameo or some heavy mentioning of them.

An interesting angle could be the Fireflies, maybe someone sees what they're up to and tries to get out of the group.

I think Druckmann tweeted it would be Joel and Ellie. I think it has to be its not really the world that is great its the characters.
