- “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.
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.
