HBO's The Last of Us is only two episodes in but fans can't seem to get enough. Now, HBO has confirmed that The Last of Us will be here for at least one more season.
After teases from lead star Bella Ramsey and one of the brains behind the show, Neil Druckman, HBO killed all doubts by making Season 2 official. The Naughty Dog co-president also doubled down on his earlier statement in a subsequent tweet as he revealed that Season 2 will adapt the events of The Last of Us Part II, much like what Season 1 did with The Last of Us Part 1.

In case you're one of the handful of people who haven't watched The Last of Us on HBO or HBO Max yet, the first episode is currently available on YouTube to watch for free, at least in certain territories.
Even though The Last of Us Season 1 is based mostly on the events of The Last of Us Part 1, which is headed to the PC in March, it's made subtle changes to the story to adapt it better for TV viewing audiences.
The changes have been largely applauded by critics and audiences alike. It also helps that one of the people behind the show, Neil Druckmann, was also responsible for creating the original game in the first place.
HBO's The Last of Us is expected to run for nine episodes of its first season.
Naughty Dog recently revealed that it's moved on from Uncharted, which comes after reports that Sony has re-assigned the franchise's reboot to a different studio. It remains unclear if The Last of Us Part 3 is still coming or if the studio is ready to move on to another project. The first-party Sony studio is expected to release a multiplayer spin-off to The Last of Us sometime in the next few years.
