The Last Of Us is the first HBO series based on a video game, with a new cast taking on roles previously portrayed through motion capture.
Created by Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) and the original game’s co-creator Neil Druckmann, the series follows Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) 20 years after modern civilisation has been ravaged by a deadly infection.
The show also stars Gabriel Luna, Anna Torv, Merle Dandridge, Nico Parker, Melanie Lynskey, Murray Bartlett and Nick Offerman.

In a four-star review, NME wrote: “Gamers have been burned before by poorly conceived adaptations of their favourite titles, so they were naturally skeptical. But they needn’t have been. The Last Of Us lacks novel ideas, but when it’s this good it can get away with it.”
