Set in a world ravaged by a pathogen that turns those infected into violent monsters, the Last of Us follows the journey of Joel – a hardened survivor played by Pedro Pascal – and Ellie – a 14-year-old played by Bella Ramsey – whose natural immunity to the infection could be the world’s last hope for creating a cure.

Together, as a reluctant Joel and a hopeful Ellie travel across America, they’ll have to survive not just against the infected, but also other hardened survivors and communities, many having lost their humanity living under brutal conditions.

It’s a dark, unforgiving world that shows us the best and worst of humankind. Fandom is here to give you the rundown on everything you need to know about the show, which you can catch right now on Sky.
