The first episode for the highly-anticipated The Last of Us TV show has wrapped up its shoot. Neil Druckmann, the man behind the video game series and director at Naughty Dog shared an update on the show’s first episode on Twitter. According to Druckmann, the first episode for the show ended its shoot this past weekend in Canada.
If you don’t know, Neil Druckmann, the same man who brought us The Last of Us on PlayStation, also directed the first pilot for the upcoming HBO show. While the director changes across each episode, Druckmann’s TV show directing debut is exclusive to the first episode of the show at this time.
While the first episode has now completed its first shoot, it is going to be a while before we get to see the show for ourselves. The Last of Us TV show is only set to debut sometime in late 2022 and there are still a couple of episodes that need to be filmed and edited. Not to mention that the CG for the episodes still needs to be done.
Alas… my time in Canada has come to an end. To the best tv crew in the world, thank you for your incredible work, your passion, and for making me feel so welcome! I will miss you terribly!
