First Image Of The Last Of Us TV Series Released

Video game developer Naughty Dog has dropped the first image of the highly anticipated TV series version of The Last of Us.

Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey will be starring as Joel and Ellie in the small screen programme and we've been given our first look at the pair.

The image shared to social media shows the pair looking out onto an open field with a small airplane crashed into the hill above them.

While it's not a hell of a lot of information, it's certainly been enough to get fans excited.

The update came right at the end of what Naughty Dog calls The Last of Us Day.

The developers sent a message to fans to thank them for their continued support ever since the first game dropped.

"We are continually in awe of the support you provide and please know that our team reads the fan letters, marvels over the art you make, and is moved by the heart you all bring to re-creating a slice of The Last of Us in your own world," they said.

Craig Mazin, who cut his teeth on the wildly successful Chernobyl, has been called on to create the TV show, alongside the game's director Neil Druckmann, who will help to pen the series.

Mazin is thought to be a huge fan of the video game, which will obviously help.

He said: "Druckmann is without question the finest storyteller working in the video game medium, and The Last of Us is his magnum opus.

Carolyn Strauss and Naughty Dog CEO Evan Wells will also act as executive producers.

If you're unfamiliar with the plot of the game, which was released in 2013, it follows a young girl called Ellie as she forms a relationship with hardened doomsday survivor Joel to get out of the dangerous quarantine zone.

Joel, who knows a thing or two about keeping himself alive in the post-apocalypse landscape, must get Ellie outside the zone because it is thought that she might hold the key to a cure for the pandemic that destroyed the USA.

There's been no word on when we can expect to see this on HBO so we'll have to wait and see.
