The Last of Us on HBO It is the series of the moment. We have already experienced its long-awaited end and now we have to be patient while we wait for news about Season 2, which has already been officially announced. So it is the ideal time to learn details and curiosities about the series, such as the places where its episodes were filmed. Did you know that most do not correspond to reality at all?

For example, just take a quick look at Canmore, Alberta in Google Maps to find places identical to those that we have seen in some of their moments, especially in which Joel and Ellie travel alone through winter territories.

In the story of The Last of Us, the place in question is located in Wyoming, Cheyenne (United States). However, filming also took place almost 1,500 kilometers away in Canmore, Alberta (Canada).
Where is really Boston?
Again, a long way from Boston. Some of the first episodes were shot in cities like Edmond and Calgary, both located in Alberta. Can you imagine Sarah scared out of one of those houses at night?
