WARNING: This article contains spoilers from The Last of Us episode 1

Viewers were plunged into a post-pandemic hellscape recently with the premiere of HBO’s The Last of Us. The show is adapted from the video game of the same name from Naughty Dog with the company’s executive Neil Druckmann serving as a writer on the show. The Last of Us sees two survivors trekking across a fungus-ravaged America, crawling with deadly and ravenous infected humans, in the hopes of developing a cure to save humanity.

The opening instalment introduced viewers to the world of The Last of Us, including the totalitarian military dictatorship now in power known as FEDRA.

Viewers also met the rebel faction The Fireflies, who were leading the rebellion against FEDRA as well as trying to find a vaccine for the fungus.

Each week The Last of Us will feature new cast members as the show takes audiences across this dystopian wilderness with viewers encountering the last vestiges of the human race.

Here is a look at the key players in the forthcoming episode of the drama.
