Major news for those who are on the edge of their seats waiting for the premiere of the Alberta-shot HBO Series The Last Of Us! This week, in a crossover we never saw coming, it was widely reported that comedian Nick Offerman would be joining the cast of post-apocalyptic badasses, Bella Ramsay (Game of Thrones) and Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian, Narcos).

Known best for his work as Ron Swanson in Parks and Recreation, Offerman’s role on the upcoming show is under wraps, but we’d be willing to bet he’ll play it perfectly. This is not only due to his talent, but his knack for playing rugged outdoor folk in nearly everything he’s appeared in – after all, what’s more ‘rugged’ than the end of the world?

The news came to light during an interview that The Guardian did with another TLOU star, Murray Bartlett.

“[The Last of Us] is co-created by Craig Mazin, who did Chernobyl. The scripts he’s written blew my head off. It’s an epic show, but beautifully human and intimate. We filmed it in Calgary. A lot of my scenes are with Nick Offerman. Playing off him was awesome.” Bartlett said.

For those unaware, the show follows a smuggler tasked with escorting a young girl back to safety after a mutating fungus wipes out most of humanity and is based on a video game of the same name.

In addition to its massive fan base, the show is expected to be beloved by many and was even given a budget unseen by the Hollywood public. In fact, it’s being considered the most expensive in history.  

Want to check it out? Luckily you won’t have to wait for Alberta-shot The Last of Us to hit screens for too much longer – as the show won’t take people by storm until early 2022 – so get ready! It’s going to be wild.
