In a move that will surprise no one, HBO has already renewed The Last of Us for a second season, despite only being two episodes into its initial run.
Since HBO's adaptation of The Last of Us debuted two weeks ago, it's quickly become one of the biggest successes for the network, sitting directly behind Game of Thrones. With that in mind, everyone's been waiting for the inevitable confirmation that HBO is ordering a second season of the show.
As reported by Variety, HBO has done exactly what we were all expecting and renewed the show for a second season. There aren't many more details on the second season just yet, beyond the assumption that it'll adapt Part 2, but showrunner Craig Mazin and executive producer Neil Druckmann shared some thoughts with Variety on the renewal.
Druckmann said, "I’m humbled, honored, and frankly overwhelmed that so many people have tuned in and connected with our retelling of Joel and Ellie’s journey. The collaboration with Craig Mazin, our incredible cast & crew, and HBO exceeded my already high expectations. Now we have the absolute pleasure of being able to do it again with season two! On behalf of everyone at Naughty Dog & PlayStation, thank you!”
Meanwhile, showrunner Craig Mazin said, "I’m so grateful to Neil Druckmann and HBO for our partnership, and I’m even more grateful to the millions of people who have joined us on this journey. The audience has given us the chance to continue, and as a fan of the characters and world Neil and Naughty Dog created, I couldn’t be more ready to dive back in.”
