Neil Druckmann, the writer and creative director of both games from The Last of Usis executive producer of the program and tweeted: “You haven’t seen anything yet.”
At 20 seconds and despite the clip’s short length, it’s packed with moments fans will recognize. We see an exchange between Joel and Ellie that is lifted directly from the original game. There’s even a flashback with Joel’s biological daughter. The images also offer a glimpse of Nick Offerman as Bill.
In addition to a star-studded cast, Craig Mazin of Chernobyl is involved in the project as a writer, creator, and executive producer, as is the game’s original creative director, Neil Druckmann. The series is expected to premiere in early 2023. The first season will have 10 episodes.
