That’s it, we finally know the broadcast date of the television adaptation of The Last of Us! The first episode will be available on January 15, informs us the HBO site, in a section dedicated to its next big series. An official announcement from the American channel should therefore not be long in coming, as the news is already making the rounds on social networks.
The Last of Us is undeniably one of the most anticipated series of the moment. The trailer published by HBO is proof: barely 24 hours after its broadcast on YouTube, the video had already amassed more than 12 million views. A boon for the American channel, which is now looking for a replacement for its surprise success that was House of the Dragon.
Suffice to say that fans of the game are waiting to know when they will be able to discover the adaptation proposed by HBO. Until today, we only knew that the launch was planned for the beginning of next year. We now have a much more precise date. See you on January 15, 2023 to finally discover the adventures of Joel and Ellie on the small screen.
The Last of Us series will arrive sooner than expected
The information comes to us straight from HBO itself which, failing to have published an official press release, discreetly dropped the bomb on its site. Under a promotional video, we see that the first episode is scheduled for January 15, accompanied by the description: “A preview of the post-apocalyptic drama series based on the critically acclaimed video game”.

As the news begins to spread like wildfire on social media, HBO is expected to finally make its official announcement within the next few hours, or days. Either way, it’s excellent for all fans of the saga, who were expecting to see the series land later in the year. We know some who will stampede with impatience during the Christmas holidays.
