Joel and Ellie will not fill the small screen in 2022. The Last of Us series continues filming and has no confirmed release date. However, the head of HBO Max programming, Casey Bloys, has stated in statements to Deadline that the debut of the fiction is scheduled for next year.
“It’s not going to be released in 2022, they’re still filming in Canada. I imagine that we will see it in 2023”, admitted Bloys. “I have seen some preliminary episodes and I am very excited. Craig did Chernobyl for us and he’s a fantastic writer and director. What I’m wearing looks great, I’m very excited, but it’s not going to arrive in 2022.”

Is The Last of Us the new Game of Thrones?
Since Game of Thrones concluded its run on television, many platforms have tried to mimic this success with their own productions. Is The Last of Us the next Game of Thrones? Bloys flatly denies it: “There is no next Game of Thrones. I’ve been here long enough to hear ‘what’s next The Sopranos, what’s next Game of Thrones, what’s next Succession. There is no next Game of Thrones.”
Partly, because HBO Max is preparing the first Game of Thrones spin-off, The House of the Dragon. It is an adaptation of Fire and Blood, a book written by George R.R. Martin that we will enjoy this year.
Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey play Joel and Ellie in The Last of Us series. The series based on the Naughty Dog video game has been adapted with Neil Druckmann, narrative director, as one of the main pillars of fiction. In this adventure, the characters travel through a post-apocalyptic world full of infected, where survival is everything.
