The Last Of Us Season 2 is “ready to go” once the SAG-AFTRA strikes end, says game creator Neil Druckmann. At present, the co-president of Naughty Dog is promoting the launch of a horror attraction at Universal Orlando inspired by The Last Of Us. In a chat with Entertainment Weekly, Druckmann discussed the state of affairs surrounding The Last Of Us Season 2.
“My job is really strange, I’m given feedback on this theme park thing, I’m working on the TV show, and I’m working on another game, so I’m just kind of jumping around on different projects,” he said. “We’ve outlined all of season 2 and we’re ready to go as soon as the strike ends.”
As mentioned above, Druckmann is working on a new game but has kept the details under wraps. He was quizzed whether the new game would be a threequel in The Last Of Us universe. “As far as the next game at Naughty Dog, I can’t say anything,” Druckmann replied. “My comms director over there will slaughter me.”
Before the SAG-AFTRA strike, Craig Mazin had previously confirmed that the whole of Season 2 had been outlined. The Chernobyl creator said he had also written “the script for the first episode and sent it in [to the chiefs at HBO] right before the strikes began. “I think it’s becoming essentially a near certainty that we won’t be able to start [shooting] when we were hoping to start, which is upsetting. We are all raring to go. This is what we are born to do. This is how we not only choose to live our lives, but I believe [how we] are compelled to live our lives.”
The Last Of Us stars Pedro Pascal, Bella Ramsey, Anna Torv, Nick Offerman, Murray Bartlett, Nico Parker, and Storm Reid. Mazin recently said he was open to making multiple seasons of The Last Of Us.
