The first season of The Last of Us HBO TV series is due to begin later this month, but creator Neil Druckmann and showrunner Craig Mazin are already discussing the possibility of a second season. If the first season proves popular enough, the duo hinted that season 2 would cover the entirety of The Last of Us Part II.
How many seasons of The Last of Us will there be?
The Last of Us is set to run for “several” seasons. The first season will cover the entirety of the first game although there will be some “radical changes” that will mix things up to surprise viewers. Both Druckmann and Mazin hinted in an interview with Hollywood Reporter that season 2 would then cover the entirety of The Last of Us Part II.
Druckmann refuses to confirm whether the rumors that The Last of Us 3 was in development are true, although he earlier told players to be wary of insider info. According to the games’ creator, “I think there’s more story to tell.” However, if the show is to continue, there will need to be more material to base it on as Druckmann is adamant “we have no plans to tell any stories beyond adapting the games.”
