It’s half-time, Alberta! After 6 months of road closures, location hopping and viral set photos, the cast, and crew of HBO’s The Last Of Us, have begun reflecting on their time filming here in the province, and in doing so, they’re showing us a whole lot of love!
Starring Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) and Bella Ramsey (Game Of Thrones), the show, which is based on a video game of the same name, will follow Joel, a smuggler who is tasked with escorting a young girl across post-apocalyptic America.
Expected to be among the most expensive TV productions of all time, The Last Of Us already has a devoted fan base and has become something of sentimental value by locals lucky enough to have watched the entire production take shape.
From Edmonton to High River, Calgary and Canmore, Albertans have gotten to watch some extravagant sets come to life in streets, fields, on bridges, and around the buildings of some of Alberta’s most recognizable destinations and it’ll be something we remember for years to come.

In fact, it may be something that even the stars of the show will never forget, with Bella Ramsey – THE badass of the north herself, taking to Instagram to share that she’s really fallen in love with our province while here.
“I have accidentally become Canadian,” she wrote.
“In my plaid jacket, flames *toque* and Canada stunts hat… hell knows what’ll happen after act two. Here are some pictures of this beautiful sunny cold-ass country,” adding that she’s actually going to miss it over Christmas.
Of course, she wasn’t the only one! Other stars of the show who has shared their fondness for Alberta while filming TLOU?

Gabriel Luna, who plays a character named Tommy in the show shared that “Albertans are real good people,” in an Instagram post from a Flames game, while Rutina Wesley said that she could shoot in our mountains “any day.”
Honestly, the feelings are mutual – and we cannot wait to see our peaks and valleys in the show ourselves.
Luckily we won’t have to wait much longer, as it’s expected to premiere in 2022. Until then, we’ll continue to keep you guys updated on anything and anything as more information rolls in. We’re on the edges of our seats!
