The Last Of Us Episode Five will premiere days earlier in Ireland and UK

We don't have to wait until next Monday to find out what happens next!

Mild spoilers for the events of Episode Four as well as previous episodes of The Last Of Us TV show.


If you're all caught up with The Last Of Us, then you already know that episode four - titled "Please Hold My Hand" - features Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) in a whole heap of trouble in Kansas City. While trying to take a shortcut to Wyoming, they get attacked by a group of bandits, but they manage to kill them and escape.

But it turns out the entirety of Kansas is being ruled with an iron fist by Kathleen (a terrifyingly calm Melanie Lynskey), the leader of a revolutionary movement that even managed to shove the last remnants of the government out of the city. As if that wasn't enough, there is word that the infected have found a way to burrow into the city, but Kathleen wants to keep a lid on that until they can find Henry (Lamar Johnson). And who might Henry be? Well, Joel and Bella won't have long to wait to find out, as they wake up with Henry pointing a gun in their faces...

What a way to end an episode, and to keep us on that cliffhanger for a full week. Except not so this week! Due to the Super Bowl taking place this Sunday, HBO decided to change the premiere date and time for episode five, moving it to 9pm on Friday night in the States.

JOE reached out to representatives at Sky and NOW to ask if this would impact the premiere date and time for customers in Ireland and the UK, and they have confirmed that episode five will be available to watch on demand on Sky and NOW from 2am on Saturday, 11 February. It will also have its linear premiere on Sky Atlantic from 2am on Monday, 13 February.


From that point on, further episodes will continue to be made available as normal, from 2am on Mondays. Check out the teaser trailer for episode five - titled "Endure and Survive" - right here:
