Season 2 of ‘Last of Us’ Postponed Due to Writers’ Strike

Fans of the hit HBO drama series The Last of Us may have to wait longer than expected for the second season. This is because the Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike affects many shows, including The Last of Us.

A new story from Variety says that casting for the show’s second season has stopped because there are no scripts for the season yet. Variety also said that before the casting process was put on hold, the casting team was getting ready to give players scenes from The Last of Us Part II by Naughty Dog, the video game on which the second season will be based. The report also says that co-creators Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann are not working on the show “in any capacity” right now and that Mazin, who wrote most of the first season’s episodes, has recently been seen on the WGA picket line. The second season was supposed to start filming in Vancouver in 2024, but it’s still not clear if that will still happen.
