The Last of Us will premiere on HBO in January

The Last of Us TV show release date has seemingly been revealed early by an HBO app

The release date reveal is planned for later in the week though HBO has pretty much confirmed we can expect The Last of Us to premiere on the cable network January 15.

A senior source with knowledge of the show’s release plans said that this date is legitimate and had been posted early in error. It’s also been claimed that an official reveal is scheduled for later in the week.

It is currently unclear if the show will debut in other territories where HBO Max isn’t available at the same time

The Last of Us was originally a 2013 action-adventure game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment

The series, which will air on HBO Max in the US and Sky in the UK, will cover the events of the first game, as well as potentially some content based on The Last of Us Part 2

The adaptation has various episode directors such as Jeremy Webb, Ali Abbasi, Kantemir Balagov, and creator Neil Druckmann.

It stars Pedro Pascal as Joel, Bella Ramsey as Ellie, Gabriel Luna as Tommy, Nick Offerman as Bill, Merle Dandridge as Marlene, and Jeffrey Pierce as Perry.

Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson are also in a couple of episodes.

Druckmann and Craig Mazin are executive producers alongside Carolyn Strauss (Chernobyl, Game of Thrones), Naughty Dog’s Evan Wells, PlayStation Productions’ Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan, and others.

Pascal, known for his work in The Mandalorian and Game of Thrones, intentionally created distance between his version of the character and Troy Baker’s in-game portrayal, only briefly watching his nephew play the game.

“I watched for as long as I was able to that day, and then I had to leave Florida,” he recalled in an interview earlier this year.

“I found Joel so impressive – I found the whole of it such a visually impressive experience. And then I got worried that I would want to imitate too much, which I think could be right in some circumstances, and then a mistake in others.”
