Neil 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!”
Craig Mazin added: “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.”

#4. What is The Last of Us season 2 about? The Last of Us season 2 plot leak
Series writers and executive producers Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann have indicated that they plan to adapt the events of the second video game, 2020’s The Last of Us Part II, should the show get more seasons — which now it will.
It’s difficult to describe the plot of Part II without spoiling it, so we’ll just say there are two major twists that triggered such a strong and immediate reaction from players that Druckmann, who developed both games, received death threats. “We have no plans to tell any stories beyond adapting the games,” Druckmann previously told. “We won’t run into the same issue as Game of Thrones since Part II doesn’t end on a cliffhanger.”
