Baby Girl, Here Are All “The Last of Us” Season 2 Details You Need


To all the baby girls out there (IYKYK), we’ve got news for you. Following its explosive premiere in January 2023, HBO’s adaptation of the award-winning PlayStation game “The Last Of Us” quickly solidified its status as one of the must-see shows of the year. After rave reviews and plenty of award nominations, it’s officially back for another season. Cue all the “Zaddy” memes of Pedro Pascal.

Set against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic America two decades after a mutant fungus wreaked havoc on civilisation, the series chronicles the journey of Joel (Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey). Joel’s mission? To smuggle Ellie out of a quarantine zone and, in doing so, potentially save humanity.

Fast forward a year from the show’s debut, and if that cliff-hanger ending left you still grappling for answers, you’re not alone. But fear not, because we’ve got the inside scoop on what Season 2 might have in store. Buckle up as we spill everything we know so far!

“The Last of Us” Season 2 Plot

Following the gripping ending of Season 1, Season 2 will explore the aftermath of that finale, with Joel, Ellie, and humanity’s fate hanging in the balance. The narrative will align with “The Last of Us Part II” game, which is set five years after the events of the first game, and focus on now-19-year-old Ellie living with Joel in Jackson, Wyoming. Season 2 promises to bring back the intense emotions and moral complexities of the game, but with a twist that deviates from the source material.

Showrunner Craig Mazin has assured fans that Season 2 will be both familiar and distinct from the game. Mazin has also noted that events of “Part II” will extend over more than one season of the series, providing ample time to delve into the intricate storyline.

“The Last of Us” Season 2 Cast

Who Will Play Abby?

Heading into Season 2, the big mystery on everyone’s mind was, “Who’s gonna be Abby?” Well, we finally have answers! Kaitlyn Dever, you know, the one from “Booksmart” and “Justified”, has snagged the role, and we can’t wati to see what she brings to the role.

Abby’s not just any character; she’s a big deal in “The Last of Us Part II”. No spoilers, but she’s a Firefly who crosses paths with Joel and Ellie early in the second game. According to HBO, Abby is no ordinary character; she’s a “skilled soldier” with a pretty straightforward view of the world.

Who Will Play Dina?

Isabella Merced, the talent behind “Dora” and the “Lost City of Gold” and “Transformers: The Last Knight”, will be stepping into Dina’s shoes.

Now, if you’re not familiar with Dina, she’s a key player in the Jackson community, and happens to be Ellie’s partner. Their relationship is like a rollercoaster, evolving and growing in all sorts of ways throughout the game. And, spoiler alert, Dina’s one of the strongest voices in Ellie’s life. But, does Ellie always heed that voice? Well, you’ll just have to sit tight and watch to find out. It’s gonna be a good one!

Who Will Play Jesse?

And then there’s Jesse, who will be played by none other than Young Mazino, the star from “Beef”. He’s the community’s pillar, always putting the needs of others before his own, even if it comes at a terrible cost. Introduced in “The Last of Us Part II”, Jesse’s got history with Ellie and Dina — he’s not just a friend; he’s also an ex-boyfriend.

“The Last of Us” Season 2 Returning Cast

Good news for “The Last of Us” fans — Season 2 is bringing back the familiar faces! Pascal and Ramsey, who wowed us in Season 1 and even scored some Emmy nods, are making a comeback. Since Joel and Ellie are making a return to Jackson, Gabriel Luna hinted that he’s back in the game as Tommy. And since Tommy’s hitched to Maria, chances are Rutina Wesley might be making a return too.

“The Last of Us” Season 2 Release Date

Unfortunately, we shouldn’t expect to see “The Last of Us” Season 2 hit screens any time soon. The writers’ strike threw a wrench into production, which led to HBO pushing the release date back a year. Filming hasn’t kicked off yet, which means we might have to wait until the end of 2024 or even early 2025 to see Season 2 hit our screens. It’s a bummer, but good things come to those who wait, right?
