According to The Last of Us creator Craig Mazin, given the higher scope and more complex story, the adaptation of The Last of Us Part 2 may be divided into several seasons.
Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal played the leadl characters of Ellie Williams and Joel Miller in the HBO television version of Naughty Dog’s popular PlayStation game, which Mazin directed. A mutant strain of the Cordyceps fungus destroys the planet in The Last of Us, taking place in 2003, and leads to the collapse of human civilization as the deceased victims transform into rabid and cannibalistic monsters. Joel, Pascal’s weary smuggler, is charged with carrying Ellie across North America while avoiding human enemies and infected dangers.
Despite this, several adjustments made in The Last of Us season 1 guarantee that future seasons will also have certain adjustments. In addition to less significant decisions like putting the outbreak in 2013, Mazin has also demonstrated that he is ready to move certain scenes from later in the game to incorporate them in earlier stages of the game, as seen with the addition of the hotel in episode 2, to provide Tess more effect and development.
