The Last of Us debuted to 4.7 million viewers which makes it the second most successful debut in HBO Max history (to only House of the Dragon). Episode two, meanwhile, saw the largest increase in viewership for any show in HBO history. The critical reception and huge popularity all but guaranteed a renewal for a second season and we’re happy to see its received one!
