Views of the second episode of "The Last of Us" became a record for HBO
The second episode of the series The Last of Us, which was released on January 23, has already been watched by 5.7 million viewers, which is 22% more views than the first. The streaming service HBO reports on the record high rates of the video game adaptation.
Such a jump from the initial audience of the premiere to the debut audience of the second episode is "the largest increase in the audience of the second week for the HBO Original drama series in the history of the network," the streaming service said in a publication.
The first episode has already been watched by 18 million people since its release, and the series still remains the second most viewed on HBO after "House of the Dragon" — a prequel to the popular series "Game of Thrones".
