The Last of Us Shatters HBO Max Records, Becoming One of the Most Successful Series Ever

Surpassing Game of Thrones and The House of the Dragon

According to the latest financial quarter data shared by Warner Bros. Discovery, The Last of Us has just become one of the most successful series in the history of HBO Max. At the time of sharing this publication, the production led by Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin has been viewed by 30 million people worldwide, a stratospheric figure that has undoubtedly exceeded any expectations.

Game of Thrones Dethroned

Before The Last of Us, the series that reached such levels of audience was Game of Thrones, specifically its seventh and eighth seasons, which concluded the story of Westeros.

In fact, The Last of Us can also boast that, in some regions, it looks in the rearview mirror at The House of the Dragon, the first spin-off of Game of Thrones. This data is especially surprising because, lest we forget, the series focused on the Targaryen family was, by far, the most popular content on HBO Max the previous year.

Unexpected Success

Although it’s true that The Last of Us generated a lot of anticipation since its announcement, few foresaw it would end up among the most successful series on HBO Max. Beyond the audience figures, it’s also worth noting that the specialized critics gave the first season very positive reviews. For many, it’s the best adaptation of a video game ever made.

The Future of Video Game Adaptations

With the unprecedented success of The Last of Us, there’s a newfound optimism for the potential of video game adaptations. As the series continues to captivate audiences, it sets a new standard for what can be achieved when translating a beloved video game to the small screen.
