news culture The Last of Us: we finally know where and when to watch the series in France!
We’re starting to worry! Since the announcement of the withdrawal of most of HBO’s series from the OCS catalog for late 2022, we know that the TV adaptation of The Last of Us, due out on January 15 in the United States, will not stream today. platform.form… and we still don’t know which French broadcaster will get the rights back. Luckily, good news just dropped!
Time flies so fast: The Last of Us, the phenomenal title from the seventh generation of consoles released on PlayStation 3, will already celebrate its 10th anniversary next June. Therefore, the year 2023 is the chance to celebrate the anniversary of one of the greatest video games of the last decade, and it got off to a big splash with the premiere of the first season of the television series airing on HBO that was adapted from the mythical title Naughty dog. However, since the withdrawal of the HBO series from the exclusive French broadcaster (OCS) two weeks before its first American premiere, we are in total uncertainty about the possibility of seeing the series The Last of Us in France! Luckily, the tension just ended.
Where and when to watch The Last of Us in France?
Released in June 2013, The Last of Us made headlines a few months ago with the release of The Last of Us Part I, a complete remake for the PlayStation 5, which will also be released on PC on March 3. . If there are rumors of a delayed broadcast, likely a few weeks after the United States, we won’t be waiting that long. before you can watch the long-awaited TV adaptation of Joel and Ellie’s legendary epic. Recently acclaimed by critical critics to the point of being considered the greatest adaptation of all time, The Last of Us series will therefore not broadcast on OCS, or even on Canal+ such as further speculation following the acquisition of OCS by the crypto chain. This is actually Prime Video, Amazon’s video-on-demand service, which inherited the rights to broadcast 9 episodes of a series that is already considered a masterpiece worthy of the legendary video game.

Another piece of good news concerns the broadcast date: while we were concerned there would be a significant gap to the American date, it’s pretty modest the day after The Last of Us will be available on Prime Video, and this is at no additional cost to Amazon service subscribers. Therefore, we were able to find adaptations of the famous American road trips of our two heroes, played by Pedro Pascal (Narcos, Mentalist) and Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones), starting Monday January 16 in France, and see for yourself how faithful this project is to its original work. As a reminder, Neil Druckmann, co-president of studio Naughty Dog and licensee creator of The Last of Us, will serve as co-director with Craig Mazin (Chernobyl). The series aims to offer an adaptation that respects the original screenplay, but includes scenes that were not seen. which cannot be integrated into the game, and will therefore be spread across the 9 episodes broadcast until March 12th.
What time will the series be broadcast in France?
Questioned by several social network users, the Prime Video Twitter account complacently replied that “every episode will be available the day after broadcast in the US on Prime Video” (sic). Generally, new releases arrive by 9am on the SVOD platform, although there have been exceptions before (such as The Lord of the Rings: the Rings of Power series, broadcast from 3am). The series airs at 9 pm in the United States (East Coast time), which is at 3 am in France, and the broadcast seems to have started to drift off, we may expect availability on monday at 16:00 in the evening on Prime Video in our territories:
The series broadcasts at 3am on the night of the 15th to 16th in the US (French time), it will arrive on Prime the same night of the 16th. So basically every Monday night.
