How many viewers watched The Last of Us Season 1?

According to a recent report by The Hollywood Reporter, The Last of Us Season 1 finale averaged 8.2 million viewers across all platforms for HBO. The series’ first six episodes are averaging 30.4 million viewers since its premiere on Jan. 15, with the debut episode cumulating 40 million viewers. This would make its viewership numbers bigger than House of The Dragon, which averaged 29 million cross-platform viewers over the course of its run in 2022.

When does The Last of Us Season 2 begin filming?

In a recent interview with Collider, Pascal said, “In the year 2023? Oh, what season are we in now? We’re getting into spring? Yes, there is a chance. Yes.” The first season of The Last of Us took around 18 months to film. So, looking at the time gap, there’s a high probability that the second season won’t be here until 2025.
