Neil Druckmann is the mind behind The Last of Us and had a major role in bringing the HBO live-action adaptation to life. So, if anyone knows where they currently stand with the project. Showrunner Craig Mazin has hinted that he already dropped off the first episode’s script before the strike started.
In a new interview, Druckmann offered another update on the series where he confirmed that they have “outlined all of Season 2” and that once the strike ends, they can pretty much jump straight into production for the continuation that’ll very likely adapt elements from the second game in the series.
We’ve outlined all of Season 2 and we’re ready to go as soon as the strike ends. As far as the next game at Naughty Dog, I can’t say anything. My comms director over there will slaughter me.Neil Druckmann
There have been hints that they may have also been busy casting while preparing for the second season, but nothing was confirmed until now. The big question that remains for every production at the moment lies in studios paying their writers and actors fairly moving forward.
