The Last of Us HBO TV Series Season 2 Part II

The Last of Us Season 2 Will Be Shorter

HBO has confirmed that the upcoming The Last of Us Season 2 will be a bit shorter than the first. According to co-creator Craig Mazin, the story in The Last of Us Part II video game will take at least two or possibly three seasons of the show to fully explore.

As a result, The Last of Us Season 2 will be a few episodes shorter than the first. Mazin claims this is to pace the story out correctly and fit the right arcs into the right seasons.

In an interview with Deadline, Mazin explained that shorter seasons will allow the story to have the correct breakpoints.

“The story material that we got from Part II of the game is way more than the story material that was in the first game, so part of what we had to do from the start was figure out how to tell that story across seasons. When you do that, you look for natural breakpoints, and as we laid it out, this season, the natural breakpoint felt like it came after seven episodes.”

Mazin confirmed in the interview that Season 2 is plotted out and currently in production. He also basically confirmed that future seasons will be on the way too. He said:

“I don’t see how we could tell the story that remains after season 2 is complete in one more season.”

Given that Season 2 has been planned, there’s clearly a lot more story which was left out. Mazin teased that this story was too big to fit into “just one” more season.

Sadly, The Last of Us Season 2 is still a while away. The second season isn’t expected to be released until 2025. Production is currently underway and expected to wrap up before the end of the year. Then post-production needs time.

HBO has teased fans with cast reveals including including Kaitlyn Dever as Abby, Isabela Merced as Dina, and Jeffrey Wright reprising the role of Isaac Dixo.
