The small-screen adaptation of the hit video game The Last of Us is heading to HBO Max Jan. 15, 2023, and a brand-new poster–drawing inspiration from the game’s cover art–was revealed this week. Check out the depiction of Joel and Ellie in post-apocalyptic urban desolation on this page.

The 10-episode first season of the show will follow Joel (Pedro Pascal), a smuggler trying to eke out an existence in the wake of a horrifying zombie outbreak. He pairs up with a girl, Ellie (Bella Ramsey), as they trek across the wasteland of the U.S.–evading monsters and worse along the way.

The series–from executive producer and screenwriter Craig Mazin–also stars Gabriel Luna as Joel’s kid brother Tommy; Merle Dandridge as Marlene, leader of the resistance movement known as the Fireflies; Jeffrey Pierce as Perry, a rebel in the quarantine zone; Anna Tory as Tess, Joel’s smuggling partner; Lamar Johnson as Henry; and Kelvonn Woodard as Sam.

Other ensemble members include Nick Offerman, Nico Parker, Murray Bartlett, Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker.

In The Last of Us video game–released for PlayStation 3 in 2013–players use various weapons to defend themselves against hostile humans and cannibalistic creatures infected by a mutant fungus. The game has won several Game of the Year awards.
