The Last of Us becomes the second best HBO premiere after The House of the Dragon: all the figures


series of The Last of Us confirms the success of its premiere on HBO and HBO Maxmaking it the second best start to a season for the network after La Casa del Dragón since 2010.

As reported by Deadline, the premiere of The Last of Us on HBO and the digital platform HBO Max has brought together 4.7 million viewers. If we don’t count the impressive premiere of The House of the Dragon, the latest spin-off of Game of Thrones, it is the series with the best performance on the network after the premiere produced in 2010 by Boardwalk Empire.

For comparison, The House of the Dragon brought together almost 10 million people in its premiere, still being (and by far) the best opening on HBO and HBO Max. But The Last of Us is capable of almost doubling other great hits on the platform such as Euphoriawhich managed to gather 2.4 million viewers in its last premiere.

It is, without a doubt, big numbers for one of the most anticipated adaptations of recent years. The series adapts the The Last of Us video game saga, developed by Naughty Dog, with Neil Druckmann, the main person in charge of the original works, being one of its authors along with Craig Mazin.

HBO has recently shared a new trailer in which it shows everything we can expect from the next episodes of The Last of Us, which will be released weekly on HBO Max. Here we tell you how the series makes its beginning even more heartbreaking than the game, and here is a reference to The Last of Us: Part II that you may have missed.
