Are you ready for a thrilling ride? The hit survival series The Last of Us is set to air its fifth episode earlier than usual next week due to Super Bowl LVII. That’s right, you get to watch the show a few days earlier than usual. But that’s not all, the show’s first season is set to air its finale on the same night as the 95th Academy Awards, so you’ll be in for a real treat.
The Last of Us has already been renewed for a second season, and Sony TV executives are busy hyping the popularity of the show. Katherine Pope, Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO, said in an interview with Deadline earlier this month that IP and expanding universes continue to be a big part of their business. She also mentioned that The Last of Us has become more and more important and that there is a real focus from Tokyo, through Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Tony, to increase their standing in the entertainment community overall.
The Last of Us airs on HBO and HBO Max at 9 p.m. Eastern every Sunday, and to top it off, a new podcast titled The Last of Pods is set to debut immediately following each show. The podcast will include breakdowns of each episode, interviews with special guests from the show, and more.
So, don’t miss out on the exciting finale of The Last of Us season one, airing on Sunday, March 12th. And if you can’t get enough of the show, make sure to tune into The Last of Pods.
