HBO has confirmed that the critically acclaimed The Last of Us TV show will return for a second season.
This announcement comes from a tweet posted after solely two of the collection’ episodes have aired. That mentioned, the present garnered critical acclaim, broke some HBO viewership records, and doesn’t but seem to include many plot parts from The Final of Us Half II, so it shouldn’t come as an excessive amount of of a shock that the collection is continuous. Based on the tweet, the second season of the present will air on HBO Max (or no matter that service ends up becoming later this year).
No launch window, story, or casting bulletins had been made in relation to The Final of Us Season 2, though that isn’t very stunning because the present’s first season remains to be airing. That mentioned, it appears extraordinarily doubtless that it might observe the plot of The Last of Us Part II, which sees Ellie go on a quest for revenge after a particularly traumatic occasion that we gained’t spoil right here. Whereas the second sport on this collection proved to be rather more divisive than the primary, there’s actually no scarcity of dramatic moments and intriguing plot developments for Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin to adapt to tv in one other season.
The Final of Us is presently airing on HBO and streaming on HBO Max each Sunday night time. Digital Tendencies gave the series a four-star review, with Alex Welch writing that The Final of Us is a “lovingly made, typically emotionally riveting adaptation of what is likely one of the most treasured titles in online game historical past.”
