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.

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!
