After getting rave reviews and lots of views, HBO announced that it has renewed the live-action The Last of Us series for season 2.
Following its premiere two weeks ago, The Last of Us continues to be a major hit. While it already became among HBO’s most-watched original series premieres, the series has also seen a historic rise in episode 2 viewership, meaning even more viewers want to see Joel and Ellie continue their journey.
Given the show’s success so far, it should come as no surprise that HBO has renewed the series for a second season.
So, what does this mean for the series? Season 1 covers the entirety of the first game. While season 2 is all but guaranteed to cover the second game, there’s no word on how this will be executed. After all, Part 2 is a much longer and more complicated game to adapt.
Though some fans believe that Part 2 will be split into two seasons. Whatever creative direction the series goes though, the fact that the continuation will still be helmed by Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin should give fans of the series reason to be excited.
New episodes of The Last of Us are streamed every week, exclusively on HBO GO in the Philippines and other countries.
