In 2025, The Last of Us will make a reappearance on television for a second season. Upon its introduction at the start of 2023, the most popular video game television adaptation ever became an instant hit. However, none could have imagined the series’ eventual scale. Production on the series was originally scheduled to start this winter. Showrunner Craig Mazin announced during a Writers Room session organized by Variety that production on Season 2 will start on February 12, 2024.
The first season received positive reviews, especially for Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey’s outstanding portrayals. The opportunity to capture a romantic plotline with the protagonist of Dina, who was only briefly seen in Season 1, is one of the plot themes Ramsey is most enthusiastic about participating in when the program makes a comeback. Ramsey informed Collider recently that they are happy about the possibility of getting back to the series.
Ramsey said, “Yeah, lots of things. I’m excited for the really intense stuff, because I did a bit of that in Season 1 obviously, but to do that. And actually more physical scenes because Ellie is obviously more physically fit in Season 2. I love stunt stuff, and like waking up with bruises the next day, and finding myself with a black eye, just because it feels like so good to have done it. So I’m looking forward to doing that stuff, and also the Dina storyline. Because obviously, I had the one episode in Season 1 with Ellie and Riley, but to have it as a storyline throughout the whole of the second game in terms of Ellie and Dina is really exciting.”
The second season of the show will continue the plot from the highly regarded video game The Last of Us Part II. A few years after the first series’s end, Joel and Ellie’s adventures are resumed in Season 2, but there’s a catch: Abby Anderson makes her debut. She is a particularly important figure in the whole show’s cosmos, even more so than Joel and Ellie.
