HBO has announced that it has renewed The Last of Us for a second season after the success of the first two episodes. The second season will adapt the story from The Last of Us Part II. HBO has also confirmed that the second episode set a new record for viewership for an HBO original drama series.

Here’s what Neil Druckmann, co-president of Naughty Dog, had to say:

I’m humbled, honoured, and frankly overwhelmed that so many people have tuned in and connected with our retelling of Joel and Ellie’s journey. 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!
