New HBO Max Trailer Reveals New Looks at “The Last Of Us” & More
HBO Max has dropped a new trailer teasing their 2023 slate, and it’s a heady mix of drama, comedy, dramedy (we’re looking at you, Barry), and more. Arguably the most hotly anticipated new series coming to the streamer is The Last of Us, the hugely ambitious video game adaptation from Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann. The Last Of Us is set 20 years after the fall of modern civilization and stars Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey as Joel and Ellie, two survivors setting out from the quarantine zone on a journey that will be both brutal and heartbreaking.
The new spot also teases upcoming limited series coming to HBO Max, including White House Plumbers, starring Woody Harrelson as E. Howard Hunt and Justin Theroux as Gordon Liddy, two political saboteurs who did President Nixon’s bidding in an attempt to save his presidency and ended up helping destroy it. The new spot also gives you a peek at the fourth installment of True Detective, subtitled Night Country, which is set in Ennis, Alaska and concerns the disappearance of men operating a research station.
Other limited series coming to HBO Max in 2023 include the glitzy drama The Idol, starring The Weekend and Lily-Rose Depp, and the adult animated series Velma (which made headlines this year when it was finally confirmed that Velma is a lesbian), which focuses on the legendary sleuth’s origin story. There’s also Love & Death, Full Circle, and the return of Warrior.
The teaser also reminds us of some of the series that are returning to the streamer, including season four of Succession and the second seasons of Perry Mason, Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty, and The Gilded Age.
On the comedy side, 2023 will see new seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm, Barry, Somebody Somewhere, Hacks, Our Flag Means Death, The Other Two, Julia, and The Righteous Gemstones.
