HBO’s The Last of Us has officially been renewed for a second season.

The renewal for a second season came early, as The Last of Us has so far aired only two episodes of the first season at the time of writing. From co-creators Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) and Neil Druckmann (creator and writer of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us franchise), HBO’s The Last of Us marked the network’s second-largest premiere behind House of the Dragon, with Episode 1 surpassing 22 million domestic viewers.

“Craig and Neil, alongside EP Carolyn Strauss, and the rest of our phenomenal cast and crew, have defined a genre with their masterful debut season of The Last of Us,” said Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming, Head of HBO Drama Series and Films in a statement. “After pulling off this unforgettable first season, I can’t wait to watch this team outshine themselves again with season two.”

“I’m humbled, honored, and frankly overwhelmed that so many people have tuned in and connected with our retelling of Joel and Ellie’s journey,” said Druckmann. “The collaboration with Craig Mazin, our incredible cast & crew, and HBO exceeded my already high expectations. Now we have the absolute pleasure of being able to do it again with season two! On behalf of everyone at Naughty Dog & PlayStation, thank you!”

“I’m so grateful to Neil Druckmann and HBO for our partnership, and I’m even more grateful to the millions of people who have joined us on this journey,” said Mazin. “The audience has given us the chance to continue, and as a fan of the characters and world Neil and Naughty Dog created, I couldn’t be more ready to dive back in.”

Season 1 of The Last of Us is currently airing on HBO, with new episodes every Sunday.
