HBO’s The Last Of Us To Be Canada’s Biggest Production

It’s been revealed that HBO’s The Last Of Us series is all set to be Canada’s biggest ever production with each episode costing over $10 million.

That is an insane amount of money to be spending on those series and I believe that it makes it HBO’s most expensive show ever.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe HBO is spending more money per episode on The Last Of Us than they did on Game Of Thrones.

The show has just started production in Calgary and it’ll finish in June 2022, if all goes to plan.

There are hundreds of related businesses benefiting from the plethora of work.

The show will star Pedro Pascal, Gabriel Luna and Bella Ramsey.
