The Last of Us season one has now run its course, and has been a major success for PlayStation Productions. In fact, a second season was given the thumbs up long before the first was over, and so we'll definitely be seeing more from Pedro Pascal as Joel and Bella Ramsey as Ellie in the future. How far into the future, though? Ramsey think it'll be about a couple of years from now.
Speaking to Jonathan Ross on his talk show, the actress estimates that The Last of Us season two won't be with us until "end of 2024, early 2025". It'll "be a while", she says. Apparently, filming of the new episodes will likely begin at the "end of this year, beginning of next".
So, if you were hoping for more of HBO's take on The Last of Us next year, you may be out of luck. It's gonna be a longer wait for the follow-up season, which will begin to chart the events of The Last of Us: Part II. We've also heard that the game sequel may take at least two seasons of its own to get through, so all being well, we could end up with a minimum of three seasons.
There's plenty of time before all that, though, so we'll just have to watch something else in the meantime. Are you looking forward to more from The Last of Us' TV version? Tell us in the comments section below.

I don't know if I'm really looking forward it all that much. Season 1 started off really great, but the last two episodes especially were very disappointing. I hope the show doesn't rely too heavily on the video game source. The final two episodes were almost exactly like the games except they were done worse (can't really explain without spoiling), and both of those episodes felt really rushed imo. Acting, atmosphere, sets, everything but the pacing and some of the adaptation was great. I really liked the show overall, and while I'm not really HYPED for season 2, I will watch it.
Will give me time to play through the first which I’m currently doing the eventually the second ! And watch the series 😃
Removed - offensive remarks
I saw Bella on the Jonathan Ross show at the weekend and was shocked when she told JR she was 19 😱 I thought she was only about 15!
I’m concerned about how they’ll age Bella up cause she looks really young even outside of shows.
I hope she doesn't play in season 2
@Jacko11 thats the reason of the 2024/2025 release 😂
I wish Season 1 was split into two. It felt rushed at times and some of the exclusions were questionable. I’m gonna replay Part One to remember all the story beats whenever the PS5 version hits PS+, which may now take longer because of the show’s success
@Savage_Joe pretty sure thats to write, build sets and shoot tbh pal.
Doubt she’ll age much in a 1 1/2 to 2 years.
She’s barely aged since being Lady Mormont.
Safe to assume redacted is only signed on for a few episodes in season 2 then, right?
@Jacko11 I expect she'll age 1 1/2 to 2 years during that time.
I haven't seen season 1 yet, but if this series is in limbo what is the point in investing? Netflix is often a fan of that tbh
@huyi Its not in limbo. It’s already been renewed for season 2 & 3. It’s HBO’s second biggest show after GOT.
Pretty happy that it’s so far off. Gives Bella time to ‘mature’ into older Ellie. Given that Part 2 is split into 2 seasons I think it’s safe to say a season 4 would be in production in 2027 or later.
Perfect for ND to get working on TLOU: P3.
@Jacko11 they don’t really need to age her up. Bella is Ellie. If Bella looks like a young 19 year old so will Ellie.
@Hordak You would think so wouldn’t you especially if season 2 follows Part II’s storylines but that person is a massive part of the show now so without that person I just don’t see how the rest of the show will be better for it. Many of us know there’s going to be a big focus on several new characters from Part II.
gives ND a chance to do tlou2 remake ps5 Release.
The time between show seasons these days makes me wonder if I'll live to see the next blockbuster 10 season run. I know this won't be in that category, thank goodness.
@sjbsixpack A few years at her age, will age her up anyway. I mean, it wasn't that long ago she wasn't even double digits, 3' tall, and giving Jon Snow a piece of her mind.
they need buffalo Rhonda Rousy for season 2
I guess we know Pedro's days on the show are numbered in S2
Gives Sony plenty of time to figure how to sell us The Last of Us Part II PS5 “Remake”.
@LightningLeader they won’t drop Pedro. I think we’ll get lots of flashbacks an back story.
@sjbsixpack its a 5 year jump between Part I and II.
Is Abby going to look that young too? And Dina? And Jessie? What about Abby’s crew, will they all look like children too?
Understandable concern to have.
@stvevan @CWill97 Hopefully this means Naughty Dog is working on a PS5/PC release of Part II for Late 2023 or sometime in 2024 then...
@Jacko11 you make zero point. We don’t know who will play new characters. Why would they look young too? Fact is Bella looks young, Bella is Ellie. Ellie may look young. People need to forget about what characters look like in the game. They have no intention of making characters look like they do in the game. The characters in the game are made up. They’re drawings done on a PC. Some people look young, some people look old. The character Ellie looks young. Makes no difference to anything.
@sjbsixpack are you serious?
Ellie is 19. Dina is 20/21. Abby is supposed to be two years older.
Are they going to cast Emily Blunt as Abby when Bella looks so young? Absolutely not.
Why don’t you get your head out of where the sun doesn’t shine and read what i’m actually saying.
A very simply question to raise.
And stop talking like i’m hating on Bella, she was awesome and I had no issue for that casting from day 1.
Get over yourself.
@Jacko11 why are you so angry? You’re completely missing my point. Forget wat they look like in the game. Ellie can still be a young looking 19 year old. Dina can still look 21, Abby can still look 23. It doesn’t matter. Some people look young, Ellie can look young. It doesn’t matter. It’s realistic. SOME PEOPLE LOOK YOUNG!! IT DOESN’T MATTER!!!! 🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️
@sjbsixpack WHY ARE YOU SHOUTING?! LOUD NOISES!!!
@Jacko11 because YOU’RE MISSING THE POINT!!!!!!!!! 🤯🤯🤯🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️
I really hoped they would make a time leap and replace bella ramsey.
@sjbsixpack I MISSED NOTHING. YOU’RE MISSING MY POINT.
@Jacko11 i got your point an it isn’t an issue. You’re saying Ellie in part 2 the game looks 19, Bella’s Ellie likely won’t. I’m saying it’s not relevant. Bella is Ellie, if 19 year old Ellie looks 15, 19 year old Ellie will also look 15. Some people look younger than they are, it’s not a big deal.
