HBO has released the official trailer for the upcoming The Last of Us series. Heading to screens on January 16 (on Binge in Australia), this trailer gives us our best look yet at the journey Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) will take and how closely it appears to follow The Last of Us Part 1.
Set to a haunting cover of “Take on Me”, the trailer offers a glimpse at the tone of The Last of Us and how it seems the production has really captured both the look and feel of the game.
Also making brief appearances in the trailer are Nick Offerman, Murray Bartlett and Anna Torv as Bill, Frank and Tess respectively.
