Last week, The last of us’ premiere scoring HBO’s second biggest premiere for an original series from 2010. And now, Volume 2 of Our last“Infected,” broke another HBO record.
“Infected” brought in 5.7 million viewers on HBO and HBO Max channels, marking a 22% increase from last week’s 4.7 million premieres. That increase is the largest audience increase from the first episode to the second for an original HBO series in the network’s history, as first reported by Diversity. HBO calls this “the largest second week of audience growth for an HBO Original series in the network’s history”, which further speaks to the huge success of HBO. Our last man.
Oddly enough, while HBO is usually quick to capitalize on the series’ success with the announcement of a second or sequel, it hasn’t done so so far. Our Lasteven though every sign points to a green light for Season 2.
episode 1 of Our last surpassed 10 million viewers in just two days last week and now, Diversity reports that it’s tracking 18 million, nearly four times its premiere night audience.
