Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey will play Joel and Ellie again in this new installment that is expected to be released sometime in 2024.
The first season of The Last of Us has already come to an end and with it the expectation of what season 2 will be about, although to those who have played the video game The Last of Us: Part II They already know what they are going to find and are more mentally prepared than those who have only seen the series.
Despite the fact that it has become one of the most acclaimed and watched series of this 2023, many have complained that They have not been able to see so many infected in the First season. The complaint has come from both those who play video games and the viewers who started it without knowing what they were up against.
episode 5 ‘Resist and survive’ (1×05) It was the one that possibly housed the most infected and action with them when they emerged from the hole that was formed in the ground where Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) were with Henry (Lamar Johnson) and his brother. But if you are one of those people who have complained because they lacked a little more infected, you will be happy to know that in season 2 there will be many more of them.
‘The Last of Us’ challenges the ethics of viewers with a moral dilemma that, make no mistake, goes far beyond good and evil
This has been confirmed by its own co-creator, Craig Mazin, in a recent interview with Deadline When asked about the number of infected that have appeared in the series, they have gone from more to less throughout the entire first season:
Part of the adaptation process is trying to figure out how to take the source material that was built around the game and transfer it to a medium that’s passive. And much of the game focused on non-playable characters that you have to get around by avoiding, stealth-killing, or just engaging them. Those are your choices when fair. And the NPCs were raiders or cannibals or infected. I will say that even though we had the green light for one season, Neil and I felt we could just do one season without considering what came next. There’s more The Last of Us to come
There is a part 2 of the video game that will be adapted as it is in the series, so that there may be more infected in season 2 is highly possible, as explained by its creator:
It is quite possible that there will be many more infected later. And maybe different types. But within the episodes that we were concentrating on, I think we generally emphasized the power of relationships and tried to find meaning within the moments of action. So there may be less action than some people wanted, because we couldn’t necessarily find meaning for a lot of it or it became repetitive. After all, you’re not playing it. You are seeing it. And while a lot of people like to watch the game, it needs to be a bit more focused and useful when we show it on TV.
season 2 of The Last of Us will once again feature Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey as Joe and Ellie, respectively, but with the detail that there will be a time jump in which Ellie is already 19 years old.
