    The Trailer For "The Last Of Us" Just Dropped, And I'm Already In A Puddle Of Tears

    The series is set to premiere on HBO Max in 2023.

    Guys, the official teaser trailer for HBO's The Last of Us is finally here! As a nerd who loves video games, I need to talk about the show otherwise, I'll combust.

    So without further ado, here's what we know about the show so far.

    Pedro Pascal stars as Joel, the main protagonist who is tasked with taking Ellie to safety, believing she's the cure to a cordyceps infection turning everyone into zombies.

    Ellie, who is immune to the infection, is played by Bella Ramsey.

    And Merle Dandridge is reprising her role as Marlene, the leader of the militia group known as Fireflies.

    While most details will remain the same, there are a few differences. The show will give more context about how the infection spread and what Joel's life was like before the outbreak.

    The game starts out in 2013 but the show will take place in 2003.

    The HBO show will also feature new characters, and one of the characters, Sam, who isn't deaf in the game, will be played by deaf actor, Keivonn Woodard.

    But the clickers are still just as terrifying.

    The show is set to debut in 2023. Watch the trailer here!
