HBO has announced the duration of Episode 2 and future episodes of The Last of Us. Episodes 1 and 2 of the HBO adaptation of the PlayStation video game, which premiered on January 15 and introduced viewers to Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) as survivors in a post-fungal epidemic world, were combined into a feature-length runtime of 85 minutes.
Episode 2, named “Infected,” airs this Sunday and is a little under an hour in length; however, on January 29th, viewers can look forward to another extra-long episode with a super-sized runtime.

This seems like a good time to remind everyone that they need to find 85 minutes to see the pilot. The Last of Us is HBO’s highest-rated series ever, even surpassing the season 2 premiere of Euphoria, and it did not appear to disrupt HBO Max.
The Last of Us Episode 2 Release Date: When It Will Be Renewed?
Infected, the second episode of The Last of Us, will air for the first time on HBO and HBO Max on Sunday, January 22 at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT. Director Neil Druckmann, who also co-created the HBO series with showrunner Craig Mazin, makes his live-action directing debut with this episode.
How Many Episodes of The Last of Us?
Until March 12th, you can watch the entire first season of The Last of Us on HBO. After initial reports indicated a 10-episode order, HBO decided to air the first two episodes together as one extended introduction to the series.

Currently, on TLOU, Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Tess (Anna Torv) are scavengers transporting a highly important (and petulant) youngster named Ellie (Bella Ramsey) to a handoff with a group of rebels from the Fireflies faction. The only issue is… FEDRA forces are actively searching for infested hives.
