It won’t be the last of them.

HBO has wasted no time renewing its hit horror series The Last of Us. Just two episodes into its first go-round, the cabler said the show will return for Season 2, according to a report on Deadline.

The series–based on the popular Naughty Dog video game–was an immediate hit with horror fans, scoring the second-best premiere–after House of the Dragon–since Boardwalk Empire back in 2010.

HBO executive Francesca Orsi said the show’s cast and crew “have defined the genre with their masterful debut season. After pulling off this unforgettable first season, I can’t wait to watch this team outshine themselves with Season 2.”

The series–from showrunners Craig Mazin and Niel Druckmann–tells the tale of a post-apocalyptic world where the Cordyceps fungus has infected the human race–creating legions of zombie-like creatures.

Struggling through this nightmare, hardened survivor Joel (Pedro Pascal) is hired to smuggle 14-year-old Ellie (Bella Ramsey) out of a dangerous quarantine zone–with ravenous monstrosities around every corner.

The cast also includes Gabriel Luna, Anna Torv, Nico Parker, Murray Bartlett, Nick Offerman, Merle Dandridge, Jeffrey Pierce, Lamar Johnson, Kelvonn Woodard, Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker.
