The series proved to be another significant success for HBO, amassing 4.7 million viewers for its premiere across both HBO Max and the linear HBO TV channel.

“Our objective was straightforward – to craft the finest possible adaptation of this cherished tale for as broad an audience as possible,” shared executive producers Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann. “We are delighted to witness the warm reception by numerous fans, be they old or new, embracing The Last of Us within their domiciles and their affections.”

“We are elated to observe enthusiasts of the series and game alike immerse themselves in this iconic saga in a fresh manner, and we express our thanks to them for contributing towards its triumph,” said Casey Bloys, Chairman and CEO, HBO & HBO Max Content. “Congratulations to Craig, Neil, and the exceptional cast and crew who labored assiduously to breathe life into this show. We eagerly anticipate fans from every corner of the globe relishing the remainder of the season.”
