We see the main character Joel in the center of the picture in a brown leather jacket from behind in the semi-close-up, as he looks straight to the left. In the background, a destroyed house facade with torn wallpaper can be seen slightly out of focus. The image is overall very brownish and desaturated. on the lower half of the image is written in white letters "The Last of Us: Season 1 Sneak Peek". Below that, in gray somewhat transparent font, is information about the length and playback quality. Below that are icons for playback including the play button and the timeline. At the bottom, in the same transparent font, is a brief description of the series, which inadvertently revealed the series start date as the last sentence: "Premieres Jan. 15."

What is The Last of Us from HBO about?

The world’s population has been almost completely wiped out by an infection with a fungus. A Texan man named Joel is given the job of smuggling the 14-year-old girl Ellie out of a quarantine zone suppressed by the U.S. military. This job increasingly puts the man and the little girl to the test and becomes a bitter struggle for survival. The Last of Us tells the exciting and, at the same time, very touching cohesion of two people in a bleak, post-apocalyptic environment.

The main characters Ellie and Joel are standing on a meadow in the TV show The Last of Us on HBO. We look at them from behind and see the wide meadow over their shoulder. The green leaves of a tree can be seen in the upper left corner and a drony dark shrub in the center of the image. The meadow in front of them slopes slightly and rises again to a hill in the background.

Game of Thrones actor duo

Actor Pedro Pascal, whom we know from Game of Thrones, slips into the role of Texan Joel. The 14-year-old girl Ellie is played by the young British actress Bella Ramsay, who also made a very successful acting debut in the role of Lyanna Mormont in GoT.
The other roles also have a top cast with actress Nico Parker (“The Third Day”) as Sarah, Gabriel Luna (“True Detective”) as Tommy, Murray Bartlett (“The White Lotus”) as Frank, Anna Torv (“Mindhunter”) as Tess.


Unfortunately, the trailer doesn’t tell us yet when exactly the Series will start. However, we already know that it will start on HBO somewhen in 2023.

The upcoming year is going to be grateful in terms of Movies & TV Shows. In conjunction with the news regarding the Super Mario Movie and The Witcher Season 3, we can remain excited.
