The Last of Us Season 2 Casting Delayed, Updated Production Timeline

According to Variety, the pre-production of HBO’s highly-anticipated The Last of Us Season 2 has been delayed due to the Writers Guild of America’s ongoing writers strike.

The casting for the next installment was temporarily shut down after initially starting earlier this week. Before the delay, the outlet’s sources noted that the casting team was already asking potential candidates to read scenes from The Last of Us Part II video game since there are still no available scripts written for Season 2.

In addition, HBO is currently aiming to start filming The Last of Us Season 2 early next year in Vancouver. However, there is a possibility that the filming schedule may still change should the WGA strike go on longer than expected. The last strike happened fifteen years ago which lasted for 100 days from November 2007 – February 2008.

Who’s Involved in The Last of Us Series?

The Last of Us currently stars Pedro Pascal as Joel, Bella Ramsey as Ellie, Gabriel Luna as Tommy Miller, and Rutina Wesley as Maria. Season 1 also featured Nico Parker, Anna Torv, Melanie Lynskey, Murray Bartlett, Nick Offerman, and Storm Reid. It also included guest-star appearances from the original video game’s actors Jeffrey Pierce, Merle Dandridge, Troy Baker, and Ashley Johnson as they played new characters.
