HBO has officially confirmed that the newest hit show The Last of Us is going to be returning for a Season 2.

The massively-acclaimed adaptation of Naughty Dog’s game series of the same name, The Last of Us, has captivated audiences and drawn some of the biggest numbers HBO has ever seen.

Perhaps the biggest hit for the network since the equally-hyped Game of Thrones, it seemed inevitable that HBO would bring it back for a second season.

On January 27, 2023, HBO confirmed that, indeed, The Last of Us has been renewed for Season 2.

It is not yet known when this season will air or when production will begin, but it is certainly pleasing for TLOU fans who have been clamoring to see the continuing adventures of Joel and Ellie.
