It appears that one of the biggest shows on TV is moving production to Vancouver.

As first reported by Deadline, The Last of Us will be filming season 2 in the west coast province.

“We’re incredibly excited to have one of the largest shows on television choose to film in Vancouver,” Mayor Ken Sim told Vancouver’s Economic Commission Friday.

“Vancouver is Hollywood North – this announcement is a demonstration of our city’s continued strength in the film and television sector. As we look to the future, I’m confident that we will see even more productions decide to make their home here.”

Global News has reached out to HBO and Creative BC for comment.
