HBO’s The Last of Us Will Adapt Part II Across Multiple Seasons

HBO’s The Last of Us recently concluded its first season which more or less faithfully covered the events of the first game from Naughty Dog. The idea was to adapt The Last of Us Part II for the second season but it looks like fans will have a potential season 3 to also look forward to. According to showrunner Craig Mazin, season 2 will not cover the entirety of Part II. Instead, the adaptation will likely require multiple seasons to pull off.

Speaking to GQ recently, Mazin talked about HBO’s plans to adapt The Last of Us Part II in season 2. When asked if the full game would be adapted entirely into the second season, Mazin replied, “No, no way. You have noted correctly that we will not say how many. But more than one is factually correct.”

The first season managed to adapt the original The Last of Us video game into nine episodes. However, The Last of Us Part II has considerably more content and ground to cover when taking into account the dual storylines of Ellie and Abby. It’s unclear how the studio will approach the hefty task of adapting the video game sequel considering the time jumps and alternating characters as well.

Mazin clearly states that there’s more than just a second season currently planned for The Last of Us, even though a third season hasn’t officially been announced yet. Actress Bella Ramsey who plays Ellie on the series will likely return alongside Joel actor Pedro Pascal for subsequent seasons. Abby hasn’t been officially cast yet but eagle-eyed fans might’ve noticed a cool Easter egg in the final episode (we won’t spoil).

HBO’s The Last of Us will apparently begin filming its second season later this year.
