For those that are unaware, Henry and his 13-year-old brother Sam are two characters who come upon Joel and Ellie during their travels in the first The Last of Us game. The two pairs then team up for some time and travel together. It’s unclear just how the television series will treat these two, although, considering the fact that it seems to be a clear remake of the first game, fans might be able to expect a similar outcome.
The Last of Us series will tackle the events of the first game. However, according to The Hollywood Reporter, it may even tackle some parts seen in The Last of Us Part II, as well.
“The live-action series takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed,” reads the synopsis. “Joel and Ellie, a pair connected through the harshness of the world they live in, are forced to endure brutal circumstances and ruthless killers on a trek across a post-pandemic America.”
Joining Pascal and Ramsey are Gabriel Luna (Terminator: Dark Fate) as Tommy Miller, Nico Parker (Dumbo) as Joel’s daughter Sarah, Anna Torv (Mindhunter) as Tess and Merle Dandridge (The Flight Attendant) as she reprises her role in the video games as Marlene, the leader of a resistance group known as the Fireflies. It also features Jeffrey Pierce (Bosch) as Perry, Murray Bartlett (The White Lotus) as Frank, and Con O’Neill (Chernobyl) as Bill.
