Craig Mazin Drops Hints About ‘The Last Of Us’ Season 2

by Thomas Tuna

Anything goes this time around.

Horror fans are holding their breath as they impatiently wait for the second season of HBO’s The Last of Us to kick off (probably not until 2025 at this point), but co-showrunner Craig Mazin recently dropped some breadcrumbs for the starving faithful.

The show is currently in sleep mode due to the ongoing writers’ and actor’s strikes, but Mazin told The Hollywood Reporter that once things start rolling again, fans will see “that sometimes we do exactly what happened in the (Naughty Dog video) game, and sometimes we do something wildly different.”

Mazin added that they also “don’t necessarily do things in the same order, or at the same time. In the first season, we did things that were upsetting. People understand that this was a story where people aren’t safe.”

Discussing some of the fan backlash the show felt last season, Mazin said “sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between emotion–because the fans care–and backlash. There are times when we think they’re probably gonna be annoyed with us, but later they’ll get it.”

The Last of Us is set in a post-apocalyptic world where the Cordyceps fungus has transformed people into zombie-like monsters. Trapped in this landscape, Joel (Pedro Pascal) is hired to smuggle 14-year-old Ellie (Bella Ramsey) out of a quarantine zone.
