by Thomas Tuna

Here’s the zombie event horror fans have been waiting for.

The first trailer for the small-screen adaptation of the Naughty Dog video game sensation The Last of Us has finally arrived. No exact debut date on HBO Max has yet been revealed, but this video should make the wait a bit easier.

The trailer introduces Joel (Pedro Pascal), a smuggler who’s been tasked with escorting teenager Ellie (Bella Ramsey) across a post-apocalyptic America to a lab where scientists can study her blood. Since Ellie is immune to the virus causing the zombie outbreak, her body may be the key to finding a cure and rescuing humanity.

The 10-episode first season–slated for a debut sometime in early 2023–is led by executive producer and writer Craig Mazin.

The rest of the cast includes 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 Torv as Tess, Joel’s smuggler partner; Lamar Johnson as Henry; and Keivonn Woodard as Sam–as well as 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 firearms and other weapons to defend themselves against hostile humans and cannibalistic creatures infected by a mutated fungus. The game has won several Game of the Year awards from gaming publications and critics.
