Please Hold My Hand - Episode 4 was released on Sunday on HBO Max, but fans won't have to wait for the next episode until next weekend. Episode 5 will be released two days earlier, on Friday, February 10th at 9 p.m. ET (6 p.m. PT), on both HBO Max and HBO On Demand.


The reason behind the early release is unknown, but it's speculated that it's to avoid competition with the Super Bowl on Sunday. The next episodes will be released on Sundays on HBO Max and HBO's TV channel, with the season finale scheduled for March 12th.


Do I need to have played the games to watch the show?


It is not necessary to have played video games to enjoy the TV series. The show provides a retelling of the events from the first game and expands on some of the storylines and background elements. The writers, Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann, have added a flashback scene to help newcomers understand the story's origins.


However, if the TV series interests you, it is highly recommended to play the original game and its sequel as they are considered to be some of the most captivating games ever made. The original game is available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5, and a PC version is set to be released on March 3. The sequel is currently only available on PlayStation 4.
