We can’t speak for everyone, but it’s hard to look at the hype surrounding HBO’s upcoming series The Last Of Us, and assume that it’s anything but one of the most anticipated TV shows of 2022. From fan accounts to passerby’s across Alberta who have gotten to see behind the scenes with their own eyes, this live action adaption has a whole lot of people waiting, watching, and unsurprisingly, sharing.

Based on the 2008 video game of the same name created by developer Naughty Dog, TLOU follows Joel, a smuggler who is tasked with escorting a young girl across a post-apocalyptic America.

Not only did the game manage to sell 17 million copies worldwide, but the show itself is also actually on track to be the most expensive series ever made – so as you can imagine these sets have to be easily recognizable and incredibly elaborate.

This weekend with cast and crew back in Calgary, the city’s Memorial flyover bridge was completely shut down in order for them to dress several scenes, one of which included show leads Pedro Pascal (Narcos, The Mandalorian) and Bella Ramsay (Game Of Thrones) walking side by side with Anna Torv, who plays their companion, Tess.

Similarly to what we saw in the streets of Edmonton last week, the bridge appeared to be littered with abandoned vehicles covered in dust and wildly growing plants, camera crews and props.

It’s since been cleaned and reopened as a way for people to get around but wow, was it ever crazy to see.

 

Though in different areas, The Last Of Us will continue filming until June 2022 when it wraps before debuting on the popular network later the same year.

Until then, we will be sure to keep you updated as more information, photos and more are released.

Keep tagging us in those snaps, folks! Things like this certainly don’t happen every day!
