When will season 2 premiere?

Pedro Pascal, the Chilean actor who stars in the series playing Joel Miller, revealed in an interview with Collider that it is possible that the filming of the second season will begin this year. This may forecast that The Last of Us Season 2 will arrive in late 2024 or early 2025.

The plot of season 2 of The Last of Us

The plot of the second season is expected to focus on the story of the sequel to the first video game, The Last of Us: Part II.

The events of the second part take place five years after the first title, so it is possible that the showrunners include new stories and different material from the games. In addition, the plot of the second video game is longer than the first, so it is likely that we will see even more complete episodes.

In an interview with G.Q.Both Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann, the men behind the show, stated that “it’s more than one season,” without revealing whether we’ll even get a third or more.

Which characters are returning and which ones are making their debut?

Both Joel in the skin of Pedro Pascal and Ellie played by Bella Ramsey will be present in the second season, but others like Tommy (Gabriel Luna) are also expected to return.

There were doubts about the return of Ramsey as Ellie, since in the second game she is more adult. However, Druckmann has already made it clear that the actress will continue to be present.

As for whether we will see new characters, it is likely that Dina and Abby will come to the fore. In fact, many gamers and viewers are convinced that the first of them already appeared in a cameo in the sixth episode.
