As part of a video package of upcoming shows coming to HBO-HBO Max this year and next, the video package ended with a brief teaser of the series adaptation of the popular video game franchise The Last Of Us.
The Last Of Us is set twenty years after modern civilisation has been destroyed by a sickness that renders victims dangerous, blood-thirsty mutants. Hardened survivor Joel is hired to smuggle Ellie, a fourteen-year-old girl out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, breathtaking journey as the unlikely duo depends on each other for survival.
The series is being written by Craig Mazin and stars Pedro Pascal, Bella Ramsey, Gabriel Luna, Merle Dandridge, Nico Parker, Jeffrey Pierce, Murray Bartlett, Nick Offerman, Anna Torv, Storm Reid, Lamar Johnson, Graham Greene, Elaine Miles and Keivonn Woodard.
The Last Of Us will premiere in 2023.
