Although their answer was expected, fans are still sad that they will have to wait a while to see what happens next. 

“It will be a while,” Ramsey said. “I think we’ll probably shoot at the end of this year, beginning of next. So it’ll probably be at the end of 2024, early 2025.”

Season two will be primarily focusing on the events of its game alternative, The Last of Us Part 2. However, screenwriter Craig Mazin has recently spoken out about how the show will incorporate the unseen moments between the games. We may even see more than two seasons.

“Obviously there’s a lot more story to tell that exists. The second game is much bigger than the first, the amount of story there is much larger,” Mazin said. “So the positive thing is it’s not like, oh, there’s just one more season. I think that there is more than one more season to do.”

What else will be new for season 2?
