The Last of Us was a resounding success for HBO at its premiere
According to Deadline, The Last of Us registered the not inconsiderable number of 4.7 million viewers in its premiere on HBO Max and on the company’s channels. This marks a major milestone for the service, which hasn’t seen such a major output in years, except for House of the Dragon.
The Game of Thrones spin-off registered 9.9 million viewers, which is a record for the platform and pay television. The report also compares the figures for The Last of Us with those for Boardwalk Empire, a 2010 production that opened with an audience of 4.81 million viewers.
In this sense, the series based on the Naughty Dog game was positioned as one of the most successful productions in recent years in terms of audience. To put this in perspective, it was compared to the second season of Euphoria, a popular series that registered 2.4 million viewers in the premiere of its new chapters.
This means that HBO had an excellent weekend with The Last of Us and it is expected that the situation will be repeated with the next episodes of the series.
