A large Calgary bridge was closed for HBO ‘The Last Of Us’ this weekend (VIDEO)

We can’t speak for everyone, but it’s hard to watch the hype surrounding HBO’s upcoming series. The last of us, and suppose it’s anything but one of the most anticipated TV shows of 2022. From fan accounts to passers-by across Alberta who got to see behind the scenes with their own eyes, this live-action adaptation has a lot of people waiting, watching, and not surprisingly, sharing.

Based on the 2008 video game of the same name created by developer Naughty Dog, TLOU follows Joel, a smuggler tasked with escorting a young girl through post-apocalyptic America.

Not only has the game managed to sell 17 million copies worldwide, but the series itself is also well on its way to being the most expensive series ever made – so you can imagine that these sets must be easily recognizable and incredibly elaborate.

This weekend, with the cast and crew returning to Calgary, the city’s memorial airlift was completely closed so they could dress up several stages, one of which included the Pedro Pascal show (Narcos, the Mandalorian) and Bella Ramsay (Game Of Thrones) walking side by side with Anna Torv, who plays their partner, Tess.

Much like what we saw on the streets of Edmonton last week, the bridge appeared to be littered with abandoned vehicles covered in dust and wild-growing plants, film crews and props.

It has since been cleaned up and reopened to allow people to move around, but wow, was that crazy to see already.

Although in different areas, The Last Of Us will continue to film until June 2022, when it will end before making its debut on the popular network later that same year.

Until then, we’ll be sure to keep you updated as more information, photos and more are released.

Continue to identify us in these pictures, folks! This stuff certainly doesn’t happen every day!
