Contrary to fans’ hopes for at least three seasons of The Last of Us, HBO drama chief Francesca Orsi hinted that the upcoming second season will be the show’s final installment.
During an interview with Deadline, Orsi stated, “I think Craig [Mazin] and Neil [Druckmann] are still determining where they want to conclude the story. We have loosely heard about a Season 3 concept, but for now, we’re taking it one season at a time.” She continued, emphasizing that there is no guarantee for a Season 3, but acknowledging that Mazin and Druckmann have a vision for it. The possibility of more seasons remains uncertain.
In other news, the show has achieved another distinction, albeit a grim one. It has been named the most lethal TV show.
According to BonusFinder, data from IMDB and Cinemorgue confirms that The Last of Us has the highest mortality rate among TV shows, with 56.5% of characters being killed in Season 1. The average death count per episode stands at 5.78, making it one of the highest recorded rates for a series.
Led by Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann, the show follows the story of Joel (played by Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (portrayed by Bella Ramsey) twenty years after a devastating infection decimated modern civilization.
