Keeping up with Joel and Ellie's journey? Here's where to watch The Last Of Us episode 2. 

The Last Of Us is a new drama based on the hit PlayStation game of the same name (opens in new tab). Like the game, the TV series takes place in a version of 2023 that sees the world rocked by an apocalyptic event where a pandemic caused by a mutated form of the cordyceps fungus has infected and transformed countless people into terrifying, zombie-like creatures. 

Need to know what happened in the season premiere? Here's our The Last of Us episode 1 recap — we've also got a meet The Last of Us cast guide as well as an explainer on what clickers actually are so you know what the monsters are capable of and where they came from.

The first episode saw Joel and Ellie (Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey) thrown together for their cross-country mission. Judging by the "weeks ahead" trailer (opens in new tab) that HBO shared, things are only going to get more dangerous and deadly from here on out. 

If that explosive premiere has you hooked, here's where you can watch The Last Of Us episode two.
