The premiere of The Last of Us has expanded to over 22 million viewers in the United States
It cannot be stopped.
HBO’s television adaptation of The Last of Us shows no signs of slowing down. The recently announced series has been renewed for its second season after its absurd debut numbers in two episodes. Those numbers continue to rise as over 22 million viewers watched the first episode of the show.
News of the explosive debut comes out diversity, after the announcement of the second season. The first episode got off to an extremely hot start as 4.7 million viewers tuned in to see the television adaptation. Two days later, that number nearly tripled their viewership, hitting 10 million viewers in what was one of the biggest debuts for HBO. HBO is now reporting that the first episode has reached over 22 million viewers in the United States since it aired on January 15.
For the uninitiated, The Last of Us follows the story of Joel and Ellie as the duo embark on the journey of a lifetime through a post-apocalyptic world following a massive zombie outbreak. The show is the television adaptation of Naughty Dog’s hit title, which was released in 2013 and received rave reviews. Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann serves as co-creator, which stars Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) and Bella Ramsey.
The third installment premieres this Sunday, and with a second season in the works, The Last of Us is setting the benchmark for future video games looking to jump to the “big screen.” It will be interesting to see how far the numbers go when Joel and Ellie’s television journey ends.
