THE LAST OF US Gets A Premiere Date Along With An Awesome Poster Teasing The Fall Of Humanity

HBO has announced when The Last of Us will premiere on the cable network, while that news is accompanied by an episode count and a poster teasing what look set to be an epic journey for Joel and Ellie.

We've been waiting on this news for a while now, but HBO has finally confirmed that The Last of Us will premiere on January 15. The series will consist of 9 episodes, with each made available to stream in 4K on HBO Max once they've aired on the cable network. Needless to say, this promises to be an exciting way to kick off the New Year.

The Last of Us takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal and heartbreaking journey as they both must traverse the U.S. and depend on each other for survival. 

Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) plays Joel, while Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones) has been cast as Ellie.

Joining them in this adaptation of the hit Naughty Dog video game franchise are Gabriel Luna as Tommy, Anna Torv as Tess, Nico Parker as Sarah, Murray Bartlett as Frank, Nick Offerman as Bill, Melanie Lynskey as Kathleen, Storm Reid as Riley, Merle Dandridge as Marlene, Jeffrey Pierce as Perry, Lamar Johnson as Henry, Keivonn Woodard as Sam, Graham Greene as Marlon, and Elaine Miles as Florence.

Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker also star. If their names are familiar to you, it's no doubt because they played Ellie and Joel in The Last of Us games, and we've known for some time now they landed cameo roles in this small screen take on the property. 

The Last of Us, based on the critically acclaimed video game of the same name developed by Naughty Dog exclusively for the PlayStation platforms, is written and executive produced by Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann.

The series is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television and is executive produced by Carolyn Strauss, Evan Wells, Asad Qizilbash, Carter Swan, and Rose Lam.

The new poster for the show feels suitably post-apocalyptic, and we're sure another trailer is right around the corner. For now, take a closer look at that (via GameFragger.com) in the Tweet below.
