At the beginning of July, several members of The Last of Us series production confirmed the start of filming. While some reports indicated that the premiere could take place during the first half of 2022, it may take longer. The reason? It seems that the HBO project is more ambitious than we first thought. Proof of this is that Calgary, the Canadian city where filming is taking place, is feeling the benefits of such an important production.

Damian Petti, who is the president of an association of artists and film technicians in the region (IATSE 212), pointed out that The Last of Us series is a “monster” project. According to his information, HBO hired five art directors and an “army” of technicians, whose work began six months ago to get the shooting locations ready. Perhaps the most interesting part of his statement is that filming will take 12 months.

If Petti’s data is correct, then the first season of The Last of Us will finish filming in mid-2022. In other words: we’d better forget about enjoying it during the first half of next year. The executive is so confident of the scope of The Last of Us series that he did not hesitate to express that this could be the biggest film project in Canadian history.

As far as the series’ budget is concerned, he warned that he cannot reveal specific numbers due to a confidentiality issue. However, he did anticipate that one episode alone will reach eight figures. That is, 10 million dollars or more. There is no doubt, then, that the series aims to be a flagship of HBO Max’s original catalog. Surely fans of The Last of Us would expect no less.

Petti pointed out that the filming of The Last of Us is greatly benefiting the region by generating a large number of jobs. HBO tapped “hundreds” of Canadian-based companies to get the project off the ground. Will it live up to the enormous expectations surrounding it? We will find out next year.
