HBO’s The Last of Us has been officially renewed for a Season 2

With only two aired episodes, The Last of Us will be renewed for a season 2. The first episode brought in a total amount of 4.7 million viewers the night it aired.

Upon the airing of the second episode, there was a 22% increase. I expect those numbers to keep going up as each episode of The Last of Us gets better and better.

It now trails behind House of the Dragon and Boardwalk Empire. The works of Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey has taken HBO Max and the world by storm.

The world is welcoming Joel and Ellie into their hearts, and it wants much, much, more. Thankfully it has now been confirmed that that wish will be granted.

As of now the series has scored a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. Neil Druckmann hinted that they would be wasting no time jumping into the story of The Last of Us: Part 2. 

It will be interesting to see how much of the game’s story will be applied on air. ComingSoon shared Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin’s thanks and gratitude to each other and the fans for all of their current support for The Last of Us.

“I’m humbled, honored, and frankly overwhelmed that so many people have tuned in and connected with our retelling of Joel and Ellie’s journey. The collaboration with Craig Mazin, our incredible cast & crew, and HBO exceeded my already high expectations.”-Neil Druckmann on behalf of being renewed for a season 2. 

“I’m so grateful to Neil Druckmann and HBO for our partnership, and I’m even more grateful to the millions of people who have joined us on this journey.”-Craig Mazin on a season 2 in the latest press release.

Don’t miss an all-new episode of The Last of Us on HBO and HBO Max this Sunday at 9PM EST as Joel and Ellie make their way to Bill and Frank for help. Those of you who have played the game know what happens next.

Reviewers have already raved that episode 3 “Long Long Time” is the best of the series.
