everything is stopped, it doesn’t taste good

HBO’s The Last of Us creator Craig Mazin provides an update on season 2. Should we expect a significantly longer delay? Where are the teams now?

After Season 1 box set, The Last of Us will be eligible for Season 2. However, due to a strike by the writers and actors, the adaptation of the Naughty Dog franchise is on hold. And that’s since last May. Improvement in coming days? According to new statements from Craig Mazin, he is not choosing.

The Last of Us season 2 telecast

A months-long strike by writers and actors in Hollywood halted all production. From big movies like Gladiator 2 to major TV shows like The Last of Us, bad news. We’ll have to wait until at least 2025 to see the continuation of Joel and Ellie’s live-action adventure in season 2 of TLOU. ” We plan to air Season 2 sometime in 2025 she had said.

A few months later, that’s status quo, and Craig Mazin isn’t holding out too much hope that filming will begin in 2023. in the summer “I think we’re pretty much certain that we won’t be able to start shooting The Last of Us Season 2 on the date we’d hoped.” What bothers you. We’re all looking forward to it. We were born to do this. We live for it, not because it is an obligation. Otherwise, why should we do this crazy job? Not for the money anyway, I can assure you of that” (via Entertainment Weekly). With the summer coming to an end on September 23rd, it really stinks to be filming this season 2.

Before the strike, Craig Mazin and his teams could still move forward. “We could have planned the whole season 2. I also wrote and pitched the script for the first episode to HBO. I sent it to the canal at about 10.30 or 10.40 p.m., just before the strike started at midnight.’.

Developer Craig Mazin’s (Chernobyl) curiosity is already there

Therefore, at the time of writing, filming for The Last of Us Season 2 has not yet begun. Screenwriters and actors fighting for better working conditions face walls. Worse yet, we’re entitled to a contest for the bleakest exits among major entertainment companies.

As recently as this weekend, Netflix co-founder Ted Sarandos expressed concern that the talks could set a precedent that could prompt voices from other countries to rise. It is recalled that in addition to the demands of actors and screenwriters to be better paid, as well as stricter for their profession, the latter also demand a better distribution of income from SVOD platforms. So from Netflix, Disney+ or even Amazon Prime Video. Services and businesses that for now would rather see people out of work than land a bigger slice of the huge pie.

At this point, no one can predict the outcome of this battle, so when will The Last of Us Season 2 be released. No matter what happens, the TLOU series is here to stay and may even have babies. In a recent interview, Craig Mazin talked about possible separations. “I’m not opposed to the idea of ​​other series being inspired by these characters or this world. I really hope that if this happens, it will be done with the same care, respect and love as what we are working towards now.. Melanie Lynskey, who plays the character of Kathleen, would not say no to the separation. “If they wanted to go back and do an origin story, I’d be there.” The story of how this woman got into this position [de leader] would be really interesting” she insisted.
