The Last of Us season 2 release date isn’t coming any time soon, sadly

We're already missing Joel and Ellie after the best TV series of the year, but it sounds like The Last of Us season 2 release date is still a while away.

The Last of Us season 2 release date won't be any time soon

The dust has settled and now we can all say that The Last of Us is one of the best TV series in years. The thriller series dragged us into the dark world of the Cordyceps crisis and unveiled The Last of Us zombies scarier than most horror movies.

Naturally, we’re all turning our eyes to the possibility of a potential The Last of Us season 2 release date. However soon the horror series returns, it frankly won’t be soon enough. We need to see The Last of Us characters like Joel and Ellie again.

Unfortunately, that wait sounds like it will be agonisingly long. At least, that’s what The Last of Us cast member Bella Ramsey, who plays Ellie, thinks.

Appearing on The Jonathan Ross Show on Saturday (via The Independent), Ramsey said she’s not expecting to get back on the set of the drama series until much later this year.

She said: “It will be a while. I think we’ll probably shoot at the end of this year, beginning of next. So [The Last of Us season 2 release date] will probably be the end of 2024, early 2025.”

The possibility of two years without any more of The Last of Us sounds pretty tough to handle, but it might give us enough time to get those terrifying Clickers and Bloaters out of our dreams. Just in time to scare ourselves silly again, of course.
