The Last of Us” Episode 5 Date Change Due to Super Bowl

Because of this week’s broadcast of the Super Bowl, the popular horror series “The Last of Us,” which airs on HBO Max, will have a different airing schedule than usual. This week’s episode 5, which was originally scheduled to make its debut on Sunday evening, will now be made available to view on Friday, February 10 at 9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. HBO will continue to broadcast the episode in accordance with its typical time slot on Sunday evening at 9 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time. Following the current week, new episodes of the show will once again begin airing on HBO Max on Sunday evenings.

The popularity of “The Last of Us” remains high, with the number of people watching the show steadily increasing from week to week; as a result, a second season of the series has been ordered. The events of the show take place 20 years after the collapse of modern civilization, when a hardened survivor named Joel is hired by a wealthy businessman to smuggle a young girl named Ellie out of an oppressive quarantine zone. Ellie is only 14 years old. As they travel across the United States, they are forced to rely on each other for their own survival because the job turns out to be more difficult than they had anticipated.

A number of well-known actors, including Storm Reid, Anna Torv, Jeffrey Pierce, Nick Offerman, Merle Dandridge, Nico Parker, Murray Bartlett, and Con O’Neil, appear in the series. Pedro Pascal plays the role of Joel, Bella Ramsey plays the role of Ellie, and Gabriel Luna plays the role of Tommy, who is Joel’s brother. Craig Mazin, who is also known as the creator of “Chernobyl,” is credited with developing the series for HBO. He and Neil Druckmann are also credited with writing and executive producing the series.
