The Last of Us creator Neil Druckmann revealed that at least ‘one element‘ from The Last of Us Part II Remastered: Lost Levels is planned for Season 2 of HBO’s ‘The Last of Us‘.
The filming for season 2 is now scheduled to start on February 20, 2024, in Vancouver, BC, Canada, with filming expected to wrap on September 9, 2024. Druckmann on Season 2, “My focus on The Last of Us’ next season has remained the same — Craig and I want to create a great season of television that stays true to the themes and intent of the original Part II story while adapting the story as best we can for a different medium.”
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Druckmann says there is at least “one element” of The Last of Us Part II Remastered: Lost Levels planned for season 2 of the show.
Druckmann said, “As a tease, I will say there is at least one element from a cut level that is planned [for] the show.” Druckmann added, “I say that with the caveat that we haven’t started filming the show yet and all things are subject to change based on what we ultimately feel will be best for the show.”
Neil Druckmann Says The Last of Us Part II Remastered Aimed for Gaming Excellence, Not TV Show Setup
Druckmann says making ‘The Last of Us Part II Remastered’ was about creating the best game, not necessarily setting up work for the TV show.
Druckmann said, “Game and TV development are often very different in nature, and Part II Remastered’s development was about offering the best version of this game possible rather than teeing up any work for the show.” Druckmann added, “I remember going into the studio to record commentary tracks for a handful of cinematics, then in the afternoon meeting with Craig to break season 2’s story, which was often based on the same sequences or moments,” Druckmann adds. “So, the process of working on the remaster happened to double as a research refresher for me on the intricacies of the story, along with why we made certain decisions.”
Based on the 2013 video game of the same name, developed by Naughty Dog, the series follows Joel (Pascal), a smuggler tasked with escorting Ellie (Ramsey), a teenage girl, across the post-apocalyptic United States, and Joel’s younger brother and former militiaman, Tommy (Gabriel Luna). Along the way, they encounter fellow survivors, cutthroat bandits, and monstrous clickers who have become so infected by the disease that fungi sprout from their bodies. Created and written by Mazin and Druckmann for HBO.
‘The Last of Us’ Season 2 is scheduled to premiere on HBO in early 2025.
