What else is on HBO Max?
"The Last of Us" isn't the only smash hit show the streaming giant has put out recently. Here are our top picks of what to watch on HBO Max.
'House of the Dragon'
"House of the Dragon" is totally on fire with its audience. Set 200 years before the events of "Game of Thrones," the spin-off series follows the bloody reign of House Targaryen. Olivia Cooke, Matt Smith, Emma D'Arcy and Paddy Considine star in Season 1 of "House of the Dragon."
"House of the Dragon," now streaming on HBO Max
'The White Lotus'
Originally slated to run as a limited series, Mike White's Emmy-winning HBO show, "The White Lotus," took fans to Sicily for Season 2.
Jennifer Coolidge returns alongside a star-studded cast, which includes Aubrey Plaza, Haley Lu Richardson, Will Sharpe, Theo James and Meghann Fahy. The first episode of "The White Lotus" Season 2 is now streaming on HBO Max.

'Don't Worry Darling'
Olivia Wilde's sophomore film tells the tale of Jack and Alice, a young couple residing in an idyllic company town community in the 1950s. Everything appears picture perfect, but after her neighbor wanders into the surrounding desert and comes back changed, Alice's world begins to fracture.
Starring Florence Pugh, Harry Styles, Chris Pine and Wilde herself, "Don't Worry Darling" is now available to stream on HBO Max.

'The Sex Lives of College Girls'
From the minds of Mindy Kaling and Justin Noble, "The Sex Lives of College Girls" follows four dormmates at a prestigious college who are all looking to find themselves during their freshman year. Season 2 of this raunchy comedy picks up right after fall break, and it seems the girls still have a lot more to learn. Starring Pauline Chalamet, Amrit Kaur, Reneé Rapp and Alyah Chanelle Scott, "The Sex Lives of College Girls" Season 2 is now streaming on HBO Max.

'The Big Brunch'
Created and hosted by Dan Levy, "The Big Brunch" brings together 10 contestants from across the country to compete at perfecting a chef's most dreaded meal: brunch. Levy is joined by judges Will Guidara and Sohla El-Waylly in this delicious new cooking show, now streaming on HBO Max.
"The Big Brunch," now streaming on HBO Max
'Our Flag Means Death'
"Our Flag Means Death" is based loosely upon the real life of Stede Bonnet, a wealthy aristocrat who gave up everything to become a pirate captain. After striking up an unlikely friendship with the iconic Captain Blackbeard, Bonnet and his newbie crew set sail towards many misadventures across the Seven Seas.
Taika Waititi and Rhys Darby star in this swashbuckling new comedy series alongside a star-studded ensemble cast which includes Fred Armisen, Leslie Jones, Kristen Schaal, Nick Kroll and Will Arnett.
"Our Flag Means Death," new episodes streaming weekly
After closing out its first season on a swoon-worthy cliffhanger, "Starstruck" is back for season two. Starring Rose Matafeo and Nikesh Patel, "Starstruck" follows the somewhat lost 20-something Jessie, who begins an almost-relationship with a movie star after a one night stand. Season two of the show will pick up right where it last left us: with Jessie choosing not to make some big life changes for Tom. Ultimately, this grand gesture will not solve all of the odd couple's problems, as you can see from the trailer.
