HBO has given its first look at the highly anticipated The Last of Us TV series. The series has been in production for over two years, with game director Neil Druckmann and Chernobyl director Craig Mazin involved in the project. While the exact release date of the TV series The Last of Us is being finalized, the HBO teaser video says the series will premiere next year. The teaser also offers glimpses of other shows on HBO including the critically acclaimed Succession and The White Lotus as well as The Idol, Love and Death, Our Flag Means Death, Hacks, And Just Like That, and more.
The 20-second teaser of The Last of Us series gives a glimpse of Joel and Ellie struggling to survive in a hostile environment. The teaser also gives a brief look at Bill, played by Nick Offerman. Pedro Pascal plays Joel and Bella Ramsey plays Ellie in the series. Aside from that, other cast members include Gabriel Luna as Tommy, Anna Torv as Tess, Nico Parker as Sarah, Ashley Johnson as NC, and many more. It remains to be seen whether the series can stay true to the game’s story. The first season of The Last of Us is expected to follow the story of The Last of Us Part 1.
Game director Neil Druckmann appears to be directing several episodes of The Last of Us series alongside host and co-creator Craig Mazin, as well as Peter Hoar, Kantemir Balagov, and Jasmila Zbanic. Balagov directed the pilot episode of the series. The first season of The Last of Us series will have a total of 10 episodes. This isn’t the only PlayStation series adaptation in the works right now. Amazon is apparently developing a TV series adaptation of God of War.
