The Last of Us Season 2 confirmed! Will the sequel close the gap between the games?

After just two episodes, “The Last of Us” on HBO was successful enough to warrant The Last of Us Season 2. But will the sequel take over the plot of the second game?

  • “The Last of Us” continues in a 2nd season!
  • HBO confirmed the sequel to the highly acclaimed video game adaptation.
  • The story of the 2nd video game is also to be told in the series, but is it already in season 2?

The buzz for “The Last of Us” is spreading as rapidly as the cordyceps mushroom in the series, which is why US broadcaster HBO has officially ordered a sequel after just two episodes. In a statement, game and series creator Neil Druckman commented on the early extension.

The Last of Us Season 2 confirmed! Will the sequel close the gap between the games?

I am grateful, honored and frankly overwhelmed that so many people have tuned in and connected with our retelling of Joel and Ellie’s journey. Working with Craig Mazin, our incredible cast and crew, and HBO have exceeded my already high expectations. Now we have the great pleasure of repeating that with season two! On behalf of everyone at Naughty Dog and PlayStation, I want to say thank you!

Previously, Druckman and co-showrunner Craig Mazin promised that should “The Last of Us” receive additional seasons, they would adapt the plot of the game “The Last of Us Part II” and also hinted that the story should end with the end of the 2nd game.

However, it is not ruled out that season 2 will close the time gap between the two games, in which a whole 5 years will pass after all. This would not only allow HBO to run the series for three seasons, lead actress Bella Ramsey would also have more time to visibly age and thus play an older and former Ellie.

We’re sure to learn more about the plans for Season 2 in March, when Season 1 has aired in its entirety on HBO, or you can watch “The Last of Us” on Wow or Sky, if you don’t fall back on these streaming alternatives.
