Looks like this apocalyptic tale is far from over.
The Last of Us–the wildly popular HBO adaptation of the Naughty Dog video game–is heading into Season 2, and one of the show’s powers-that-be thinks the end is nowhere in sight.
Craig Mazin–showrunner of the series, along with Neil Druckmann–said during the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) convention in Las Vegas that there’s still “quite a bit of story to tell. Our plan is to do it for more than just one more season We should be around for awhile.”
Mazin declined to pull back the curtain on Season 2, though, only saying they are still in the scripting stage right now, and the season will be shot in British Columbia.
The Last of Us was renewed for a second season after just two episodes aired of Season 1, as it recorded the second-best HBO premiere after House of The Dragon since Boardwalk Empire‘s debut in 2010.
The series is set in a post-apocalyptic world where the Cordyceps fungus has transformed humans into zombie-like monsters. In this nightmare, Joel (Pedro Pascal) is hired to smuggle 14-year-old Ellie (Bella Ramsey) out of a quarantine zone. No easy assignment, with deadly creatures lurking around every turn.
