The 10-episode first season of the series–reportedly set for an early 2023 debut date on HBO–is based on the popular Naughty Dog video game and was developed by Mazin and Neil Druckmann. Kantemir Balagov directed the pilot episode.
The series follows Joel (Pedro Pascal of The Mandalorian fame), a smuggler tasked with escorting teenager Ellie (Bella Ramsey of HBO’s Game of Thrones) across a post-apocalyptic America. Gabriel Luna portrays Joel’s kid brother Tommy, an ex-soldier.
Recurring characters include Marlene (Merle Dandridge), the head of the resistance movement known as the Fireflies; Perry (Jeffrey Pierce), a rebel in the quarantine zone; and Tess (Anna Torv), Joel’s smuggler partner.
The Last of Us video game–released for PlayStation 3 in 2013–has won multiple Game of the Year awards from gaming publications, critics and game award ceremonies.
