The Last Of Us Season 2 Will Be 7 Episodes And Won’t Cover The Full Game

The Last of Us Season 2 is on the way but it won’t be last for the series, nor will it cover the entirety of the sequel its adapting. A new interview with Deadline reveals the season’s 7-episode count, the likelihood of a third and even fourth season, and how the showrunners plan on telling its story.

“The story material that we got from Part II of the game is way more than the story material that was in the first game, so part of what we had to do from the start was figure out how to tell that story across seasons,” Mazin said. “When you do that, you look for natural breakpoints, and as we laid it out, this season, the national breakpoint felt like it came after seven episodes.”

Even though Season 2 will be shorter than Season 1, one of its episodes is said to be “quite big” in length. The showrunners also tease that a potential Season 3 will be much larger and in scope. Despite this, Mazin doesn’t believe they can tell the whole story in two seasons because they want to take their time. “And indeed, the story may require Season 4,” he says.

HBO has not yet renewed The Last of Us for a third or fourth season, but Mazin believes it will happen “as long as people keep watching.”
