An official listing for HBO's The Last of Us has reportedly revealed that the series will premiere in the US on January 15, 2023.
According to multiple reports, the release date for HBO's adaptation of The Last of Us has leaked by way of the HBO Max app and website. Eurogamer has confirmed that the January premiere date is currently listed in the description of the show's Season 1 Sneak Peek, visible to HBO account holders in the US, though there hasn't been an official announcement yet.
"A preview of the post-apocalyptic drama series based on the critically acclaimed video game. Premieres Jan. 15," the overview states, per a screenshot of the listing.
Elsewhere, in the UK, broadcaster Sky has reportedly released promotional materials for the series featuring a premiere date of January 16, 2023. This date would stack up, as time zone differences typically mean that HBO shows are released on a Sunday in the US while UK viewers can watch the same episode in the early hours of Monday morning.
The Last of Us is expected to tell the story of the original game, following Joel and Ellie as they trek across post-apocalyptic America and depend on each other for survival. However, some stories in the 10-episode first season will "deviate greatly" from what came before because the show's creators wanted the HBO series to "enhance" the game.
The first full trailer for HBO's The Last of Us showed scenes that fans of the PlayStation-exclusive title will be familiar with, including the iconic opening scene from the game. The footage also showed more of the overgrown United States landscape, characters old and new, and the first glimpse of the infected enemy, the Clickers.
If you want to catch up on the story before the TV adaptation, there's never been a better time than now, thanks to the recent remake of the game for PS5.
