A new trailer for The Last of Us is expected to debut during the show's panel at CCXP Brazil on Thursday, and to build anticipation, HBO Max has shared a series of character posters for the upcoming Naughty Dog video game adaptation.

These banners give us new looks at the likes of Joel, Ellie and Bill, as well as first official glimpses of supporting players such as Joel's brother Tommy, Ellie's pal Riley, Firefly leader Marlene, and tragic brothers Sam and Henry.

If you've played the first game, you'll know that a lot of these guys only had fairly minor parts in the story, but at least a few of their roles are expected to be significantly expanded for the series.

Check out the posters below, and keep an eye out for that new trailer at some point later today.

The Last of Us is set 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed and centers on the relationship between Joel, a smuggler in this new world, and Ellie, a teenager who may be key to a cure for a deadly pandemic. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle the 14-year-old girl out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey as they traverse the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.

Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) and the game's creator Neil Druckmann are writing and executive producing the show. The first season will adapt the events of the original game, but is also expected to include elements of the sequel. Druckmann recently confirmed that the series will take some liberties with the story.

The first season will consist of 10 episodes, and is set to hit our screens on January 15.

I'm really excited for this show, and all of the cast. Only thing I worry about is that it's gonna be a retread of the game. Hope Mazin and Druckmann have a new angle to counter that

@bkmeijer1 - I think it should retread the game. There is something to be said about seeing a series play out in a different medium. The argument that people use is, "If you want the same story as the game then just play the game." Or whatever the original medium was, comic, video game, whatever.

But it's also countered with "If you don't want to make a Last of Us show then don't call it The Last of Us".

Resident Evil is a perfect example of this. Every attempt to make something of that has strayed so far from the games and it's been terrible because of it. The CGI movies are the best ones but thats because they are using the games as actual events in those films.

For me, I want to see the same stories play out in live action. They don't need to be perfect. But they also don't need to stray so far that it no longer feels like the same story either.

I stopped supporting any projects that involve Druckmann after Uncharted 4. Dude soiled up my favourite gaming franchise. Not a fan of his.

@TheManWithoutFear - Druckmann is....I don't know. I have mixed feelings. While I didn't like some of the decisions he made in TLoU2, anyone that says it's a bad game is being completely disingenuous. And I know it's all people's opinions and they have the right to feel that way and they aren't wrong for it. But you should also be able to keep story beats and game quality separate.

TLOU2 is an amazingly well made game that looks absolutely gorgeous and is as solid a game as you're likely to play. I don't know how anyone can disagree with that.

And I'm not even a TLOU guy. I love the story of the first one, but the gamenitself never really pulled me in. I'm not a huge stealth guy. But I won't sit here and say it's a bad game because I don't like the genre.

I feel like the same can be said about Uncharted 4. It's still a good game, even if the story isn't what people wanted.

@TheManWithoutFear - I actually quite liked what he did with Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us Part 2. That said, neither game was better than it's predecessor (but that was always gonna be a tough job, for anyone)
