The Last Of Us showrunner and co-creator Craig Mazin has confirmed that the first episode of the show’s second season has been written.
After the success of The Last Of Us’ first season that aired earlier this year, fans are desperately waiting to see more. The good news is that we now have confirmation that the first episode of season two is written and ready. However, the bad news is that the current strikes may mean a delay.
The Last Of Us Season 2 Episode 1 Has Been Written
This news comes a few months after Mazin revealed production on season two had begun. However, it soon had to be halted due to the ongoing writers strike.
Now in an interview with Deadline, the co-creator talks about how development is currently looking for the team.
“We know what the whole season is, and I was actually able to get a write and submit the first episode right before the deadline hit.
“So now I’m just walking around kind of brain-writing, I guess, which I don’t think is scabbing. I take walks and I think through the scenes because when the bell rings and this is over because the companies have finally come to their senses, I’m going to have to basically shoot myself out of a cannon because we really want to try and get this show on the air when it’s supposed to be on the air.”
With season two expected to air in 2025, Mazin hopes this will still be the case. However, he realises that the strikes, that he himself has been a part of, could lead to a delay.
“That hurts us, and it hurts the audience, and it hurts HBO,” he said. “We all, everybody wants to get back to work; I think everybody that’s actually doing the work, including the network people who are with us on the ground, I think everybody just wants to get this solved. So fingers crossed.”
