HBO Max has shared the first official teaser for The Last of Us, a new original series based on Naughty Dog’s critically acclaimed action-adventure game. Starring Pedro Pascal as Joel and Bella Ramsey as Ellie, The Last of Us will begin streaming on HBO Max in 2023.
From Naughty Dog:
From the onset, our original vision for The Last of Us’ story was cinematic and character driven, and HBO enthusiastically continued the spirit of that same vision to bring this story to TV screens worldwide. Helmed by Craig Mazin, Creator and Writer of Chernobyl, in tandem with Executive Producer Carolyn Strauss and Neil Druckmann, the incredible cast and crew strove to ensure a faithful retelling of the story and its intricately detailed world.
In the spirit of collaboration and authenticity, Neil has taken on the roles of Executive Producer and Writer and also directed a full episode. Bringing The Last of Us to life has been a deeply creative collaboration between our studio and HBO.
The worlds of video games and television continue to overlap as Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker, Ellie and Joel’s in-game actors respectively, join the cast in major roles. We cannot wait to see them on-screen along with new and longtime fans of The Last of Us.
Today happens to be The Last of Us Day, a day in which fans from around the world can celebrate the franchise with art, in-game photos, studio creations, and more. Naughty Dog has released a new collection of animated GIFs and a new wallpaper as part this year’s festivities.
