‘The Last Of Us’ Showrunner Looks Ahead To Season 2

by Thomas Tuna

It looks like more of the same–but different.

The Last of Us–the HBO adaptation of the Naughty Dog survival horror video game sensation–wrapped up a successful first season last night, and plans are already underway for the next go ’round.

Craig Mazin–co-showrunner along with Neil Druckmann–has said Season 2 will draw from the game’s 2020 sequel, The Last of Us Part II, but fans can still expect some surprises along the way.

Mazin–speaking to comicbook.com–described the second season as “different–just as this season was different. Sometimes it will be different radically, and sometimes it will be barely different at all. But it will be different–and it will be its own thing.”

Expounding on those thoughts, Mazin added that Season 2 “won’t be exactly like the game. It will be the show Neil and I want to make.”

As for when the next season of The Last of Us will hit HBO, the powers-that-be are playing it very coy. The only hint has been dropped by series star Pedro Pascal, who teased that filming may start before year’s end. That could mean Season 2 may hit the small screen next year or perhaps early 2025.

So, keep reading Horror News Network for all updates on Season 2 of The Last of Us on HBO.
