The Last of Us episode 5 will arrive on HBO Max this Friday instead of the regular timeframe of Sunday. This simply means that the next episode of the series will be coming out two days earlier than it used to.
The Last of Us Episode 5 Will Arrive On HBO Max This Friday
Episode 4 of The Last of Us landed on HBO Max on Sunday, but even at that, you will not be waiting for a whole week for the next episode of the series, episode 5. The next episode is set to make its way to the streaming platform and HBO on Demand two days early which is on Friday, February 10 at 9 pm ET, the company revealed.
The Reason for the Change in Timeline
The company did not offer much in terms of a reason as to the shift in timing, but it’s presumably to avoid competition with Sunday’s super bowl.
Episode 5 of the popular series will air on HBO’s TV channel in its regular Sunday position, and the rest episodes of the series will land on HBO Max on Sundays. The season finale is set to come out on March 12.
The Last of Us Storyline
The Last of Us as you should know follows up the life of unhappy smuggler Joel and his fun teen pal Ellie (Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey) as they journey across a US that is ravaged by a fungal brain infection. The series is based on the Sony PlayStation game of the very same name.
