For the last decade, there have been plenty of discussions and attempts to make a live-action adaptation based on The Last of Us. Sam Raimi was set to produce a film adaptation at one point, but the project has since entered development hell. Even an animated film was in the works at some point but was canceled. But, after many years and attempts, The Last of Us TV series was officially greenlit in 2020, with Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin set to write, produce, and act as the Showrunner for the project, along with Niel Druckmann, the original writer and director of The Last of Us. Here’s when The Last of Us is coming out on HBO Max.
After years of production and delays, HBO released a trailer of The Last of Us TV series, starring Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) and Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones).
The Last of Us HBO Max Release Date
HBO has now confirmed that The Last of Us TV show will now premiere on Jan. 15, 2023. The news comes via a new poster for the series showing Pedro Pascal as Joel and Bella Ramsey as Ellie walking down a ruined road from the post-apocalyptic setting.
There’s no word just yet on the exact release schedule, whether we’ll get multiple episodes on Jan. 15, or whether it’ll be one episode per week for the duration of the series. Once we’ve got more information, we’ll be sure to update this post and let you know.
That’s all you need to know about The Last of Us’ HBO Max release date for now. For more on The Last of Us, check out our review on the recently released remaster of the original on PS5.
