‘The Last of Us’ Season 2 to begin production in early 2024

Desperate to reunite with Joel (Pedro Pascal), Ellie (Bella Ramsey), and an army of creepy Clickers in The Last of Us Season 2? Then we’ve got some good news for you.

The new season is set to begin production in early 2024, HBO and Max CEO Casey Bloys told press at a Nov. 2 event. That timeline is tentative for now, as production can only begin once the striking Screen Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA) reaches a fair deal with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP).


‘The Last of Us’: What you can expect from Season 2

Outside of shooting, The Last of Us Season 2 has made progress in other ways. Showrunner Craig Mazin told Entertainment Weekly that before the Writers Guild of America (WGA) went on strike, the writers had mapped out Season 2 and Mazin had written the first episode.

Given a 2024 production start date, it’s likely The Last of Us Season 2 will be airing in 2025. According to Bloys, The White Lotus Season 3 has also been pushed back to 2025.

However, there is still a lot of HBO programming to look forward to coming into 2024. House of the Dragon will be airing in the early summer. Returning shows include True Detective: Night Country, Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 12, The Sex Lives of College Girls Season 3, Hacks Season 3, and Industry Season 3.
