“The Last of Us” made its debut on HBO and HBO Max last night. The series’ premiere drew 4.7 million viewers in the US, making it HBO’s second-biggest debut since the premiere of “Boardwalk Empire” more than a decade ago at 4.81 million viewers. announced Today. “House of the Dragon” remains the biggest premiere in HBO history with nearly 10 million viewers.

The video game adaptation was a recipe for success given its established fan base, a star-studded cast, and an accurate portrayal of the franchise that many gamers were eager to see come to life. While it’s too early to predict whether “The Last of Us” will become the most popular game-based TV series, the ratings are a sure sign that HBO is doing something right. Notably, “The Last of Us” marks the company’s first time turning a video game into a show.

“We are thrilled to see fans of the series and game alike experience this iconic story in a new way, and thank them for helping make it a success,” said Casey Bloys, HBO Chairman and CEO & HBO Max Contents, in a statement.

We’ll also add that the premiere triggered a 69% increase in first-time U.S. downloads of the HBO Max app on iOS and Android devices, according to third-party app intelligence estimates from (formerly App Annie). In addition, the HBO Max app reached #4 in the overall ranking of free iPhone apps in the US App Store on the night of its premiere. The last time it ranked this high was when it hit #3 on the list when “House of the Dragon” debuted in August 2022.

However, “The Last of Us” has big shoes to fill if it wants to compete with other game-based shows like Netflix’s “Arcane,” which is based on “League of Legends.” Based on Netflix’s own stats, “Arcane” had 38.4 million hours of viewing for the week of November 15, 2021. Paramount+’s “Halo” set a record as it was the streamer’s most-watched series premiere worldwide. Amazon Prime Video also has video game adaptations in the works, including a “God of War” series.

The HBO original series has a total of nine episodes and streams on Sundays.

HBO Max subscribers were only introduced to a few characters in the first episode, so it’s likely that subsequent episodes will feature more, such as Frank (Murray Bartlett), Bill (Nick Offerman), Kathleen (Melanie Lynskey), Florence (Elaine Miles), Riley (Storm Reid), Perry (Jeffrey Pierce), and Henry (Lamar Johnson). Viewers finally get to see clickers in action too.
