Upcoming HBO series The Last of Us has been seen filming at yet another location in Calgary, giving a new spot a post-apocalyptic makeover.

The Last of Us has been filming in Alberta since the summer of 2021. The production has been taking place in a number of locations across the province, but it seems to favour Calgary, with filming taking place at the 4th Avenue flyover, theĀ Beltline,Ā SAIT and Mount Royal University,Ā North Hill Shopping Centre, and throughout downtown.

Earlier this month, the series was spotted filming in the Victoria Park community on the outskirts of downtown Calgary, but now it looks like it’s moved on.

Footage shared on social media this week shows a set near the Calgary Courts Centre at 601 5th Street SW, along with other locations in and around downtown. One Instagram user also shared a photo of “zombified” cars being transported in the Kensington area that matched other vehicles seen on previousĀ The Last of Us sets.

Photos and videos that have surfaced from each of the shooting locations suggest this series isnā€™t messing around. It looks like itā€™s going to be amazing!

The Last of Us,Ā based on the 2013 video game of the same name, follows the journey of Joel, a smuggler tasked with escorting teenager Ellie across the post-apocalyptic United States. What starts as a small job becomes a difficult trek as the pair travels across the US and must depend on each other for survival.

Earlier this year, the series was filmed in theĀ town of Okotoks, about half an hour south of Calgary andĀ Waterton Lakes National Park.

Previously, filming has also taken place at the Legislature Building in Edmonton, Fort Macleod, andĀ Canmore.

According toĀ ACTRA Alberta, production for the project began in July 2021 and is set to wrap in June 2022, so we might be seeing more post-apocalyptic scenes around the province over the next few months as the crew finishes up filming.

The Last of UsĀ is slated to be released on HBO and HBOMax in 2023, and Canadian viewers can subscribe to the HBO package through Crave.
