It’s official, The Last Of Us will be returning for another season, after becoming HBO’s second most-watched series premiere in more than a decade.

Raking in loyal fans of the video game and new ones who couldn’t resist giving it a watch, it comes as no surprise that the post-apocalyptic drama has become increasingly popular.

And, if you’re one of the rare people who hasn’t given in to temptation and started watching the series, you can do so now by signing up for Binge.

In the meantime, we’ve gone ahead and gathered everything you need to know about The Last Of Us season two, including the release date, plot and cast.

What is the release date for season two of The Last Of Us?

While we don’t know exactly when season two will be released just yet, we’re most likely looking at waiting until late 2024 or early 2025 for it to arrive.

Production is said to take place from February this year according to Variety, so we hope to get more details soon.

Until then, you can stream season one of The Last Of Us now on Binge with a 7-day free trial by signing up here.


What will season two of The Last Of Us be about?

While the plot for season two is still being kept under wraps, if we look at the video game – which the show has stayed rather faithful to – we can take a good guess.

Taking place five years after the first game, The Last Of Us Part II follows Ellie at the age of 19 as she hunts down a stranger known as Abby across the country to the ruined outskirts of Seattle.

Although, the show might choose to explore the period between Part I and II that we haven’t seen before in season two, and an eventual season three adapt Part II directly.

Who will be in the cast for season two of The Last Of Us?

Rest assured that it’s a pretty safe bet that we’ll see our favourite duo, Joel and Ellie, return for the next season. They are of course played by Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey, respectively.

As for the rest of the cast, it’s been confirmed that Kaitlyn Dever will take on the role of Abby, and Young Mazino – who you may recognise from Netflix’s Beef – will star as Jesse.

Joining them is Isabela Merced (Transformers: The Last Knight) as Ellie’s romantic interest, Dina.
