The Last of Us, teaser for the TV series on HBO Max

A first look at the transposition of the Naughty Dog video game

HBO Max showed a showreel of the upcoming original series, and among them is also The Last of Us, based on Naughty Dog’s PlayStation video game. It will be available on the platform early next year and will tell the story of the first chapter of the series, in which Joel (who is played by Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) traverse an America full of dangers and mutated creatures. This is the first opportunity to see the actors in action in this awaited transposition. Sony will also release on September 2 The Last of Us Part I, PS5 remake of the first game in the series, with completely redesigned graphics and new exclusive features of the latest generation console, such as the haptic vibration of the DualSense controller. The second chapter was also graphically updated in 2020 with a free patch for the PS4 version running on PS5, but this is the first time that the Naughty Dog developers have been working directly on the new machine.
