The Last Of Us Season 2 Looms In Light Of WGA Strike Deal

The Last Of Us Season 2 looks set to resume production any time now. Craig Mazin, the co-creator of the hit HBO adaptation with Neil Druckmann, shared an update via Threads on the series following news the WGA strikes had reached a tentative agreement. “Very proud of the WGA and its membership, and excited to get back to work on The Last of Us season 2,” Mazin shared. “The strike has not yet been officially lifted, but the second it is, we will spring into action!” 

Mazin is referring to the Writers Guild of America in his update, so it remains unclear what production work on The Last Of Us will go ahead since the SAG-AFTRA strikes (which relates to the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists), have yet to reach an agreement.

As the BBC reported earlier today, screenwriters in the United States reached a tentative deal that could see the WGA strike end after almost five months. The leadership team behind the WGA and union members need to agree to a three-year contract with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) before returning to stalled projects. The Last Of Us and Stranger Things are two of the biggest series stuck in limbo.  

The Last Of Us stars Pedro Pascal, Bella Ramsey, Anna Torv, Nick Offerman, Murray Bartlett, Nico Parker, and Storm Reid.

The showrunners recently suggested they were considering potential spin-offs for The Last Of Us, but in reality, we’ll be waiting quite some time for news on this front to develop. Let us know your thoughts on this story, and we’ll keep you updated on new developments at GameLuster.
