HBO shares first images of The Last of Us TV series
Although HBO The last of us The TV series wrapped filming earlier this summer, so it’s not coming soon. After all, HBO needs to save something for 2023 when it doesn’t have a new season of Westworld of Dragon House aligned. Ahead of tonight’s series premiere for Dragon House, the cable channel has released a video that highlights several of its upcoming HBO and HBO Max original series. The most important of these was the first look at The last of us.
Based on the hit PlaysStation game developed by Naughty Dog, the series features The Mandalorian‘s Pedro Pascal as Joel, a man haunted by all he lost when the world descended into an apocalyptic virus. Now, with most of the surviving humans turned into bloodthirsty killers, Joel set about his life’s work: escorting a young girl named Ellie on a cross-country journey to safety.
It’s kind of ironic that this sequence debuted before Dragon House because Ellie is played by Bella Ramsey, a young actress who had a recurring role in game of thrones like Lyanna Mormont. There’s a full cast of characters that Ellie and Joel will meet on their journey. However, the key relationship in the series is between them and how far they will go to save each other.
The last of us will air on HBO in 2023.
