HBO has been busy filming its adaptation of The Last of Us in Canada, building sets for both the Boston QZ and the Jackson settlement around Alberta. We’ve already seen Pedro Pascal, Bella Ramsey, and Anna Torv in costume as Joel, Ellie, and Tess respectively, and it’s likely we’ll see Gabriel Luna as Joel’s brother, Tommy, very soon, as the show prepares to shoot scenes set in Jackson.
But there are also a few things we haven’t seen. While we’ve seen the devastation left in the wake of the Cordyceps outbreak, we haven’t actually spotted any infected. How HBO will bring the gruesome Clickers, Shamblers, and Stalkers to life remains to be seen, and it’s the type of spoiler WB will go to great measures to keep under wraps, so don’t get your hopes up.
There are smaller fish that could pop up in the coming weeks, though, namely our first look at the show’s FEDRA soldiers, who are likely to be the antagonists of the early parts of the season. If you recall, the 2013 game opens with Joel and Tess helping a terrorist group known as the Fireflies smuggle Ellie out of the heavily guarded Boston QZ. This is anything but simple, especially once the soldiers of the Federal Disaster Response Agency catch wind of their escape. No one’s allowed out once they’re inside the QZ’s walls, and FEDRA soldiers can use any means necessary to stop citizens from escaping the de facto police state, so the trio’s mission becomes a race against time to reach the Fireflies before FEDRA can catch up to them.
A new photo (left) provides a tiny tease for the introduction of the FEDRA soldiers on the show. As you can see, the costume designers have faithfully recreated the FEDRA seal down to the smallest details for the patch on the soldiers’ uniforms:
