The Last of Us: HBO series unveils promising first teaser

Sony and HBO have unveiled the exciting first teaser for The Last of Us, the highly anticipated video game adaptation starring Pedro Pascal as Joel.

During Summer Game Fest 2022, it was announced that the famous video game The Last of Us, released in 2013 on the PlayStation 3, will be eligible for a remake intended for the PlayStation 5. But it will also be adapted into the series. If a few films adapted from video games such as Uncharted or Sonic 2 have been released in theaters lately, then the series format is increasingly being chosen (for better and for worse), as evidenced by The Witcher, Arcane and Resident Evil, all streaming on Netflix.

But this time, the red N giant has been put aside, and of course, it’s on HBO that The Last of Us will be broadcast, produced by video game companies Naughty Dog, PlayStation Productions, and Sony Pictures Television, among others. The series, officially formalized in March 2020, is being revealed gradually, with promising announcements such as the arrival of the perfect director, or simply through its cast and Pedro Pascal, who compared The Last of Us to The Mandalorian. After all these announcements, it’s time for the series to present its first short but intense teaser.

Overexposed due to the crazy anticipation around the House of the Dragon, the network took the opportunity to unveil a video full of teasers, including White Lotus Season 2, Idol, Legacy Season 4, but especially from The Last of us”. closes the video and which was obviously entitled to the longest teaser… 20 seconds in which we discover Joel and Ellie camped out by Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey. The two actors also both played on Game of Thrones as they interpreted Oberyn Martell and Lyanna Mormont.

Twenty years after the end of civilization, Joel and Ellie embark on a perilous journey to the edge of the American landscape and will have to redouble their efforts to try to survive. If the relationship of the two main characters is at the center of the story and teaser, then we can also see Nick Offerman in the shoes of Bill, Joel’s longtime friend.

Cult duo

As fast as it is depressing, the first teaser is salivating. So we’re looking forward to discovering the real trailer, which will possibly reveal the rest of the cast, in particular consisting of Gabriel Luna, Merle Dandridge, or even Nico Parker.

The HBO series, created by Neil Druckmann and Chernobyl showrunner Craig Mazin, doesn’t yet have an official release date, but it’s expected to hit HBO Max next year and most likely OCS in France.
