HBO's The Last of Us teases horrors to come in new The Weeks Ahead trailer

Following acclaimed season premiere.

It's been a long old wait, but HBO's live-action TV adaptation of Naughty Dog's The Last of Us is finally here - and, following this weekend's barnstorming premiere episode, HBO has teased some of the horrors to come in its latest trailer.

Prior to The Last of Us' TV premiere, early word from critics was extremely positive, giving fans of the games plenty to get excited about - and the first episode suggested the hype was well-earned, introducing a stellar cast and expanding on the source material's opening hour or so in largely effective, impactful ways.

With the groundwork now laid, Ellie and Joel's unforgettable road trip across a post-apocalyptic United States can begin in earnest - which, given the opening episode's surprisingly close adherence to the source material, will almost certainly see plenty of fan-favourite moments getting the live-action treatment as the weeks go on. And HBO has now offered a small tease of the events still to come in its latest trailer.

Spoilers are fairly light, but obviously you should give it a miss if you want to go in totally unsullied (or as spoiler-free as you can get if you've already played the games), but it promises plenty of good stuff to come, from proper fungal-headed clickers - and yes, that sound has made it across - to Nick Offerman in the role of Bill.

New episodes of The Last of Us air every Monday on Sky Atlantic at 2am for the next eight weeks in the UK, each being made available on-demand via Sky and Now TV immediately after. Eurogamer's The Last of Us super-fan Victoria Kennedy will be sharing her thoughts on each episode as the series progresses.
