HBO’s The Last of Us continues to go from strength to strength, with the post-apocalyptic TV show surpassing House of Dragon’s streaming figures during its premiere week.
That’s according to the latest Nielsen numbers, with The Last of Us HBO ranking six on the weekly streaming charts at 837 million minutes viewed in the first full week after its debut. This compares to House of the Dragon, which according to Deadline, amassed 741 million minutes viewed during the same period after its premiere.
The Last of Us HBO was recently renewed for a second season, which is set to include elements from The Last of Us Part 2. Bella Ramsey, who plays Ellie in the show, said that she’s not at all anxious about the new season despite critics of The Last of Us Part 2’s story.
The Last of Us HBO follows the story of the Naughty Dog game pretty faithfully, although some changes have been made for the sake of telling the story as a TV series. For example, Bill and Frank’s relationship was heavily expanded on across a single episode, whereas in the game, it’s only briefly touched on.
