It was the president of the HBO network, Casey Bloys who spilled the beans during a interview for The Hollywood Reporter website. Quite proud of the numerous nominations received for the network’s productions at the Emmy Awards, eternal rewards of the North American small screen, the big boss has split a little info on next year’s vintage… Which includes a certain The Last of Us.

It must be said that in the ultra-competitive world of the cathode ray tube, HBO holds a special place: no less than 25 productions by the HBO/HBO Max duo have amassed 140 combined nominations. The success of established hits like Succession and Barry, but also of relatively recent programs like The White Lotus and Euphoria allowed the Warner group to overtake Netflix in the race for nominations. It now remains to be seen which of these two giants will leave with the most awards at the ceremony scheduled for September 2.

See you in early 2023 for The Last of Us, TV version

But with 2022 in the rearview mirror, Bloys is already looking towards 2023 – and logically places a lot of hope on another series that is likely to cause a stir. We are of course talking about the adaptation of The Last of Us, the hit from Naughty Dog, whose production was launched last year… And which sees, finally, a first horizon of broadcasting on HBO officially announced. Casey Bloys is working on an outing “at the start of 2023” for this adjustment which will see Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey in the respective roles of Joel & Ellie, the clicker-ridden pair of post-apocalyptic America.

As for French broadcasting, the plans of the WarnerMedia group are still vague after the merger last April with the Discovery group, which would now be working on a common unified service with Eurosport for next year. Until then, the OCS group is responsible for distributing HBO content in France.

We recall for all necessary purposes that Naughty Dog recently announced the end of the development of the remake The Last of Us Part I, expected for its next return to school on PS5.
