The Fourth Episode Of HBO’s The Last Of Us Was Its Most Watched Yet

The TV adaptation is going from strength to strength.

HBO has yet again reported some incredible numbers for the debut of a new episode of its The Last of Us TV adaptation.

The fourth episode, titled Take My Hand, debuted on Monday and pulled in 7.5 million viewers in the US, a 17% increase on the previous week’s incredible episode and a whopping 60% up on the series’ debut.

HBO also announced that the next episode of its TV adaptation of The Last of Us will premiere earlier than expected.

Instead of the usual Monday, 1PM AEDT time, the fifth episode of The Last of Us is scheduled to drop on Saturday, February 11th in the same 1PM AEDT slot.

You can see a teaser of the fifth episode below:

You can watch The Last of Us on Foxtel and Binge. Head here to see the full series schedule – now updated to reflect this newest change.

The show was also just renewed for a second season after drawing record-breaking numbers for HBO, and our latest peek into the upcoming The Last of Us multiplayer game has us believing it could be a two-player cooperative experience.


HBO’s The Last of Us is available to stream on both Binge and Foxtel.

Binge is available starting from $10 per month for standard definition streaming, $16 per month for high definition and up two devices simultaneously, or $18 per month for high definition and up four devices simultaneously.

Foxtel will also have the series via FOX Showcase, which all subscribers of Foxtel or Foxtel NOW will be able to access as part of the base subscription. Like Binge, a free trial is also available for new users to Foxtel NOW, for 10 days – take a look at that here.
