HBO Max’s hit The Last of Us is on the move. According to Deadline, the production of the video game adaptation will shift from Alberta, Canada, to Vancouver for its second season.

Alberta subbed for Austin, Boston, Kansas City, Colorado and Wyoming as Pedro Pascal‘s Joel and Bella Ramsey‘s Ellie made their way across the post-apocalyptic U.S.

But the trade speculates that Vancouver’s environments are a better stand-in for the Pacific Northwest, a major location in the bestselling video game’s sequel.

The drama was renewed for a second frame after just two episodes aired to record numbers on HBO and its streaming service, HBO Max.
