“There’s nothing confirmed yet”: Ellie Actress Bella Ramsey Claims The Last of Us Season 2 Will Happen Under One Condition


If you are a gamer, then you probably already know the huge impact that PlayStation’s hyper-successful video game series The Last of Us had on the industry. The exceptionally well-written plot and story, along with the perfect execution of the story and narration mixed with intuitive and cohesive gameplay made the entire journey of the game an experience that would make memories that would last a lifetime.

And now, the franchise is getting even more popular thanks to the live-action adaptation by HBO for the show of the same name, which features Pedro Pascal in the lead role of Joel and Bella Ramsey in the role of Ellie from the video game series. With its first two episodes now released, the audience is already mesmerized by the creation of the show and the decision of sticking to the source material to the dot. And thus, Bella Ramsey is positive about the second season of the show.

With the overnight success that the HBO live-action adaptation The Last of Us has become, there is no denying that the people who thought that video game adaptations were made to fail were dead wrong. With just two episodes released, the show has already surpassed many benchmarks and records of previous shows by HBO, sitting with a 99% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes for two weeks straight, and this is all thanks to the star of the show that made it happen!

Bella Ramsey, along with co-star Pedro Pascal was able to channel the characters of Ellie and Joel from the video game series and bring them in front of the rolling camera and make it feel like the characters had been brought to the real world. With every expression and dialogue making something new, their performance is nothing short of exceptional. Thus, when Ramsey was asked whether we would see the second season of the show soon after the first, she had a positive feeling about it, saying:

“If people keep watching, I think [The Last of Us Season 2] is pretty likely. It’s down to the guys at HBO… There’s nothing confirmed yet so we’ll have to wait and see.”

With such a good reception and viewer count that the show has received in such a short time, HBO would definitely like to continue the show with almost no hesitation.

The part where HBO’s The Last of Us surpassed and other similar adaptations failed in the past was the adaptations’ tendencies to deviate from the source material either too much or too often, which HBO’s adaptation lacks. Even in the last two episodes, there has been just one scene that had been added and nothing more than that. This is something the fans take very seriously when they see any adaptation of either books, games, or any other forms of media.
