After releasing a teaser earlier this September, HBO Max‘s highly-anticipated TV series The Last of Us now receives a full-length official trailer. Adapted from Naughty Dog‘s classic action-adventure PlayStation game, The Last of Us series is set in year 2033, following the story of a smuggler named Joel (Pedro Pascal) and a young girl named Ellie (Bella Ramsey) on their journey out west in a post-apocalyptic world.

The series is co-developed by Last of Us game director and Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann and the creator of the Emmy award-winning film Chernobyl, Craig Mazin. Other cast members include Gabriel Luna as Joel’s brother Tommy, Nick Offerman as Bill, Merle Dandridge as the Fireflies leader Marlene, and Anna Torv as Joel’s smuggling partner Tess.

The Last of Us series is said to more or less cover the events of the first game, though certain parts are set to deviate significantly from the original story. Below is a short synopsis of the upcoming nine-episode show:

“THE LAST OF US takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal and heartbreaking journey as they both must traverse the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.”

The Last of US premieres January 15 on HBO Max.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Super Mario Bros. teaser previews the Mushroom Kingdom.
