“We finish what we started.”
The Last of Us–the HBO adaptation of the Naughty Dog video game sensation–will wrap up its first season with Episode 9 next Sunday, and a brief–but dramatic–teaser has dropped. Check it out on this page.
In the video, Joel and Ellie’s arduous journey seems to draw to a close as they reach the Fireflies camp, hoping to use Ellie’s immunity to find a cure for the Cordyceps. But are things what they appear to be?
The enormously popular series–led by showrunners Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann–is set in a dangerous post-apocalyptic world where the Cordyceps fungus has transformed people into horrendous zombie-like creatures.
Trapped in this nightmare of a world, Joel (Pedro Pascal) is hired to smuggle 14-year-old Ellie (Bella Ramsey) out of a quarantine zone. Hounded by monsters every step of the way, the trek becomes more and more perilous for the embattled pair.
The cast also includes Gabriel Luna, Anna Torv, Nico Parker, Murray Bartlett, Nick Offerman, Merle Dandridge, Jeffrey Pierce, Lamar Johnson, Kelvonn Woodard and Ashley Johnson.
