Season 1 of The Last of Us Episode 5: New Release Date and Time

The last episode of the popular post-apocalyptic series will be available two days early in time for Super Bowl LVII, according to HBO Max and HBO On Demand, in order to help soften the blow of airing opposite next Sunday's Super Bowl.

The premiere of episode 4 for season 1 is still scheduled for Sunday, February 12 at 9 pm/ET, right before Super Bowl LVII. This episode gives viewers the latest Ellie and Joel adventures well ahead of the big game Sunday, which will feature the Kansas City Chiefs against the Philadelphia Eagles. This is not a plan that will continue to air episodes until the season finale on March 12.

The Last of Us has recently received the go-ahead for a second season, which bodes well for the show's long-term future as well as its current viability. Other noteworthy offerings include Left Behind, which follows Ellie as she recalls her childhood boyfriend and love interest Riley, and The Last of Us Part II, which takes place many years later and investigates the cycle of vengeance between Ellie and Joel.
