HBO announced that The Last of Us had been renewed for a second season just two and a half weeks into the first season’s run, which concluded in March 2023.
Showrunner Craig Mazin said last year that the show’s second season won’t cover the entirety of The Last of Us Part 2 video game, and that the series could run for three to five seasons, “but four seems like a good number.”
Naughty Dog president Neil Druckmann, who co-created the Last of Us games and the TV series, recently told Entertainment Weekly that “there is at least one element from a cut level that is planned [for] the show”.
Druckmann has previously appeared to hint at plans for a third Last of Us game, although it’s unclear if one is currently in development.
