The Last of Us was one of my favorite TV shows of 2023. As a fan of the game, I’m excited to see how close they stuck to the source material. While there were detractors of the show online, I found season one of The Last of Us stayed very true to the themes and story of the first game. If the show continues to stay true to its source material, then the second season of The Last of Us will be a much rougher ride than the first. I’m still recovering from the game’s sequel, and it was released in 2020.
As for when we can expect to see season 2 of The Last of Us on Max, the show is scheduled to shoot the 2nd season in January 2024. Recently, HBO CEO Casey Bloys announced the 2024 slate of programming. While there are some unexpected treats coming our way on Max in 2024, like House Of Dragon Season 2, the next season of The Last of Us was not on the schedule. Unfortunately, it looks like we will have to wait until 2025 at the soonest to see season 2 of The Last of Us.
In the meantime, you can watch all 9 episodes of the first season of The Last of Us on Max. The show stars Pedro Pascal as Joel, a hardened survivor in a post-apocalyptic world 20 years after the fall of modern civilization. When he’s hired to smuggle a 14-year-old girl named Ellie (Bella Ramsey) out of the quarantine zone, it turns into a much bigger journey than anticipated. As they begin the brutal trek across the U.S., the two depend on each other for support in a brutal and heartbreaking struggle to survive. The series is based on a popular survival video game franchise, which spawned several editions, as well as comics, board games, and more.
