HBO will start 2023 with a bang thanks to their upcoming show The Last Of Us. The brand-new trailer for this post-apocalyptic series hit the shelves this weekend and here’s everything you should know ahead of its premiere this winter.
The Last Of Us takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed. It centers on a hardened survivor Joel, who embarks on a brutal, heartbreaking journey across the US after being hired to smuggle a 14-year-old girl Ellie out of an oppressive quarantine zone.
The series is led by Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) and Bella Ramsey (Catherine Called Birdy), who previously co-starred on HBO’s Game of Thrones. They’ll be joined by Gabriel Luna, Anna Torv, Nico Parker, Murray Bartlett, Nick Offerman, Melanie Lynskey, and Storm Reid in supporting roles.
Craig Mazin, who previously worked on Chornobyl, and Neil Druckmann, one of the masterminds behind The Last of Us video game franchise, created this show for HBO. They’ve both been credited as executive producers and writers.
Release Date & Episodes
The Last Of Us will premiere on HBO on January 15, 2023. The first season will feature a total of nine episodes, and the showrunners are open to working on more if the show is well-received.
