HBO's The Last of Us will help fill the void left by the end of the first seasons of House of the Dragon and The Rings of Power.

It appears that the recent leak regarding HBO's The Last of Us was correct.

Less than 24 hours after the premiere date of the highly anticipated live-action was leaked online, HBO has confirmed that it is indeed headed into small screens on January 15 and 16 next year. The former is going to be release date in the United States, specifically, at 9:00 PM Eastern, on HBO and HBO Max. Meanwhile, the latter will serve as the launch date in the United Kingdom on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV.

The first season of HBO's The Last of Us will have ten episodes that will be released every week, which, unless we're wrong, will run until the middle of March.

Here's the official logline of the show:

Takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal and heartbreaking journey as they both must traverse the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.

Unlike other adaptations, HBO's take on the first-party PlayStation series by Naughty Dog will see the hands-on involvement of one of the series' creators, Neil Druckmann, who is also the co-president of Naughty Dog. With Chernobyl creator, Craig Mazin, in tow, HBO's The Last of Us is in excellent hands. From what we know so far, the upcoming video game adaptation will expand on the source material.

HBO's The Last of Us will attempt to cover the events of the first game and maybe even the sequel.

Speaking of The Last of Us, fans are waiting for the PC release date of The Last of Us Part 1. The PS5 remake of the original award-winning title had already launched in September to mixed reception. Also, it's believed that Naughty Dog's multiplayer spin-off that's set in the same universe as The Last of Us games will be a free-to-play title.
