The Super Bowl is on Sunday, Feb. 12, and all of America will be watching, which means Sunday series may take a hit in viewers. To prevent this, many networks and broadcast channels are airing regular Sunday shows either early or skipping the week. This includes HBO’s The Last of Us. HBO has already announced that The Last of Us episode 5 will premiere days early.

Whether you keep up with the NFL or not, the Super Bowl is one of the most-watched events in America. The majority tune in to watch the game, but a large number of viewers are in it for the historic, and biggest concert in the world, the Halftime Show. It’s a fun tradition for the whole family, how can you not enjoy endless snacks, family and friends, and watching the concert everyone will be talking about for the next several days?

Still, as much fun as the game is, The Last of Us fans will feel strange it being Sunday without the series. But not to worry, HBO has solved the issue for us! The Last of Us episode 5 will stream on HBO Max and HBO On Demand on Friday, Feb. 10. More details below.

The Last of Us episode 5 time change due to Super Bowl

There will be no new episode of The Last of Us this coming Sunday, Feb. 12. Instead, The Last of Us episode 5 premieres on Friday, Feb. 10, at 9 p.m. ET on HBO Max and HBO On Demand  only. That’s right, it won’t air on HBO on Friday. Episode 5 will air on HBO on Sunday, Feb. 12, for those who don’t have HBO Max or HBO On Demand, but you can watch it early as soon as Friday.

When will you be watching the upcoming episode? Are you going to stream it on Friday or wait to watch it Sunday? If you do wait, please note you will be bumping into spoilers online if you aren’t careful!
