HBO formally renewed “The Last of Us” for Season 2 in January, but the show’s creators have “more than one season” in mind to chronicle the far longer story from the video game’s follow-up, “The Last of Us: Part II.”
“The Last of Us: Part II” presents a longer, more intricate story than its predecessor and will be released on the PlayStation 4 in 2020, seven years after the original game’s release. We’ve been left with a dreadful quandary by The Last of Us. What will we do without Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey), who we watch every week? We have been hooked to screens throughout their trek throughout the US in the wake of a fungal illness that has wiped out most of humanity. (Too early?)
After that finale, we might speculate about Joel and Ellie’s future together, but happily, we won’t have to. HBO picked up the gripping survival thriller for a second season just two episodes after the show’s premiere.
The Last Of Us: Will Season 2 showcase Season 1 actors?
The HBO adaptation’s creators, Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann, acknowledged to GQ that the events of “Part II” will cover more than one season because there are several additional characters, flashbacks, and action scenes.
When asked if the complete “Part II” plot would be told in Season 2, Mazin responded, “No. No way.” It’s more than one season, Druckmann continued.
Mazin stated, “You have noted correctly that we will not say how many,” when asked if the “Part II” plot will get two or three seasons to tell it completely. However, multiple are factually accurate.
Joel (played by Pedro Pascal in the HBO series), Ellie (Bella Ramsey), Tommy (Gabriel Luna), and Maria (Rutina Wesley) are among the core characters that return in “The Last of Us: Part II,” along with some significant new characters who receive fully developed plots.
Laura Bailey, who plays a crucial role named Abby and is one of the main players from “Part II,” made a quiet appearance in HBO’s Season 1 finale on Sunday night. She is listed as one of the nurses in the Salt Lake City hospital’s operating room, where Ellie is getting ready for surgery. A second nurse joins her as they watch in horror as Joel storms the room, murders the chief surgeon, and flees with Ellie back to Jackson.
The Last Of Us Season 2: Action-packed and more zombies!
Variety says HBO hasn’t formally approved anything for “The Last of Us” beyond Season 2, but Mazin and Druckmann have already hinted at more action and infected zombies in the future. There is more ‘The Last of Us’ to come, Mazin stated in response to certain viewers’ criticisms over the first season’s dearth of significant action set pieces. There might end up being a lot more infected in the future. And possibly other types.”
The details of HBO’s The Last Of Us Part 2 will be full of surprises and twists. Stay tuned to get more updates on the series!
