Thanks to a new HBO Max promo spotlighting footage from several of the streamer's upcoming shows, we finally have a first look at HBO's adaptation of Naughty Dog's best-selling video game, The Last of Us.
It's not much, but we do get to see Joel (Pedro Pascal), Ellie (Bella Ramsey) hiding out, as the grizzled mercenary tells his young charge that she knows "nothing about loss." We also have a shot of Joel and his daughter Sarah (Nico Parker), and Bill (Nick Offerman) removing his mask.
Check out the footage in the player below, and you'll also find the full HBO Max teaser right beneath it.
The Last of Us is set 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed and centers on the relationship between Joel, a smuggler in this new world, and Ellie, a teenager who may be key to a cure for a deadly pandemic. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle the 14-year-old girl out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey as they traverse the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.
Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) and the game's creator Neil Druckmann are writing and executive producing the show. The first season will adapt the events of the original game, but is also expected to include elements of the sequel. Druckmann recently confirmed that the series will take some liberties with the story.
The first season will consist of 10 episodes and is expected to air sometime this year, though no official premiere date has been announced.
