It’s been two years since HBO announced it was making a TV series based on Naughty Dog’s PlayStation 3 megahit, The Last Of Us. The series stars The Mandalorian’s Pedro Pascal as Joel and Game of Thrones actress Bella Ramsey as Ellie. The show is being written and produced by Naughty Dog’s co-president Neil Druckmann, and Craig Mazin, who previously served as both the writer and producer for HBO’s highly-acclaimed miniseries Chernobyl. Alongside the main cast, Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman will portray the game’s fan-favorite curmudgeon Bill, and Euphoria’s Storm Reid will play Riley from the Left Behind DLC.

While we’d previously received teaser images and a bit of footage of Joel and Ellie in action, we got our first eyeful of the show in its first official trailer back in September. Turns out Druckmann’s boast at this year’s Summer Game Fest, calling the show the “most authentic video game adaptation yet,” wasn’t an empty jest because the trailer was basically a shot-for-shot remake of scenes in the games.
