The Last of Us Creator Hints Season 2 Is ‘ready to go’

HBO’s The Last of Us season 2 is ready to move forward once the ongoing Hollywood strikes come to an end.

In an interview with EW, co-creator Neil Druckmann mentioned, “My job is really strange, I’m given feedback on this theme park thing, I’m working on the TV show, and I’m working on another game, so I’m just kind of jumping around on different projects.”

He also teases that the Halloween Horror Nights attraction at Universal Studios Orlando (based on the game series), opening Friday night, may provide hints about where the second season of the TV show will go.

Druckmann revealed, “We’ve outlined all of season 2 and we’re ready to go as soon as the strike ends.” As for a third video game, Druckmann remained tight-lipped, joking that his communications director would not be happy if he revealed anything: “As far as the next game at Naughty Dog, I can’t say anything. My comms director over there will slaughter me.”

The Last of Us franchise, which first launched in 2013, follows a man named Joel who forms a bond with a young girl named Ellie as they journey across the post-apocalyptic United States. The Universal Studios walkthrough attraction includes dialogue from the original game’s stars and highlights locations not featured in the TV show. The attraction features various enemies from the game.

Despite the strike delaying production, showrunner Craig Mazin confirms that he has already outlined season 2 and submitted a script for the first episode to HBO. While the delay is disappointing for the team, they are eager to begin filming and are committed to their work.
