The fifth episode of The Last of Us is airing early in the US, so beware of spoilers
UPDATE 06/02/2023: The Last of Us also airs two days early in the UK this week. Sky has confirmed those in the UK can watch the upcoming episode at the same time as in the US – that’s Saturday (11 February) at 2am.
The original story continues below.
ORIGINAL 2.6.2023: Episode five of The Last of Us will air two days earlier than normal on HBO Max. This is to avoid a collision with the Super Bowl.
Deviating from the normal schedule, episode five will premiere instead Friday, February 10 at 9pm EST/6pm PST. It will return to its original program slot the following week.
Of course, this means those watching in the UK will need to be extra wary of spoilers as they surf the web next weekend.
So far, there’s no word on whether other episodes of the series will also premiere early to avoid conflicts with things like the Oscars (which are slated for March 12). We will of course keep you informed as soon as we find out more.
As for the wide world of The Last of Us, the PC release of Part 1 was recently delayed by 25 days. It will now be released on March 28th, with developer Naughty Dog stating that the game arrives “in the best possible shape”.
“We know many of you are reliving the story that started it all with The Last of Us Part 1 on the PlayStation 5 console, and we realize that many of you were excited – some for the first time times – as Part 1 Hits PC,” the developer wrote in a statement last week.
“And that’s why we want to make sure The Last of Us Part 1’s PC debut is in the best possible shape. These extra weeks will allow us to ensure that this release of The Last of Us meets your standards and ours. We’re so excited to bring The Last of Us Part 1 to a new platform and to reach new and returning players with Joel and Ellie’s unforgettable story of survival, and we hope you continue to look forward to the PC release on March 28th be happy. ”
