In the series, Nico Parker plays the role of Sarah, Joel’s daughter. The series is developed by Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann for HBO. Based on the 2013 video game of the same name developed by Naughty Dog. The synopsis follows, “Two survivors (Joel and Ellie) in a post-apocalyptic America overrun by zombie-like monsters called clickers. A deadly disease called the cordyceps fungus has ravaged the world and turned its victims into shambling husks with mushroom-like spores growing from their bodies. Just like the original video game, Joel must travel across the country with Ellie on an important mission, all while dodging clickers, bandits, and all sorts of danger.
The series stars Pedro Pascal as Joel, Bella Ramsey as Ellie, Gabriel Luna as Tommy, Anna Torv as Tess, Merle Dandridge as Marlene, Nico Parker as Sarah, Nick Offerman as Bill, Melanie Lynskey as Kathleen, Storm Reid as Riley Abel, Jeffrey Pierce as Perry, and Lamar Johnson as Henry.
