Here's where to watch The Last Of Us episode 6 so you can catch up with Joel and Ellie (Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey) following their escape from Kansas City.

The Last Of Us is a drama based on the hit PlayStation game of the same name. Like the game, the TV series takes place in a version of 2023 that has been ravaged by an apocalyptic event caused by the cordyceps fungus, unleashing hoards of infected, zombie-like creatures all over the world. If you've not already started watching, don't read on; instead, check out how you can watch The Last Of Us episode 1 for free.

After briefly forging a friendship with Henry and Sam in episode 5 — which got an early premiere to avoid Super Bowl 2023 — Joel and Ellie managed to escape Kansas City and fled from Kathleen and Perry's (Yellowjackets' Melanie Lynskey and Jeffrey Pierce) gang of ruthless survivors.

Outside the city limits, though, tragedy struck once again, and our two heroes found themselves on their own once again. (Read our full The Last Of Us episode 5 recap if you need a refresher on everything that went down last time).

Otherwise, here's where and when you'll be able to watch the next episode of The Last Of Us as the series returns to its regular schedule.
