The Last of Us episode 2 release date and time: How to watch on HBO Max right now (2024)

The Last of Us episode 2 release date and time: How to watch on HBO Max right now (1)

Okay folks, it's time to watch The Last of Us episode 2 online. So, if you're not ready, we advise you get ready — this isn't getting any easier.

The Last of Us HBO Max episode 2 release date, time

U.S. date and time: The Last of Us episode 2 broadcasts today (Sunday, Jan. 22) at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT on HBO and HBO Max.
The Last of Us U.K. release date: Monday (Jan. 23) at 2 a.m. GMT on Sky Atlantic and NOW.

This is a good as time as any to say basically everyone needs to have carved the 85 minutes out of their schedule to watch the first episode. While it didn't seem to crash HBO Max, The Last of Us is a hit for HBO, topping Euphoria's season 2 debut.

Currently TLOU is following scavengers Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Tess (Anna Torv) as they bring a very important (and petulant) teen named Ellie (Bella Ramsey) to a handoff with a group of rebels from the Fireflies faction. The only problem? The FEDRA troops are on the hunt and the hives of infected are everywhere.

In our spoiler-free The Last of Us review, I highlighted how emotionally impactful the show is, and nobody should expect that to end any time soon (gamers may have an idea of what's up next).

That said, check out this trailer for the rest of The Last of Us season 1 (expect The Last of Us to get a second season), and everything you need to know about how to watch The Last of Us episode 2, no matter where you are.

And now that this (and future episodes) have aired, read our The Last of Us episode 4 recap and review to see what we thought of the next leg of the journey.
