The Last of Us showrunner discusses plans for Season 3



HBO’s latest blockbuster The Last of Us is already in the pre-production phase of Season 2. No one can deny the fact that the show has exceeded a lot of expectations, and HBO’s one of the most expensive shows to have been ever made is certainly paid its worth. Those who have played The Last of Us video games know that Part II is a lot bigger than Part I, and it will take more than one season to adapt it for TV.

Neil Druckmann reminisces about writing The Last of Us video game’s story

In an interview with Kinda Funny, Druckmann revealed how his team took a ‘backwards’ approach, “As we’re writing [the game], we can kind of like go back in time, and adjust things early on, and then jump around. So, once we know where the story’s going, we could work backwards from there, and lay a lot of setups, and track towards that ending, but we can only do it so much, because we don’t know where the story goes afterwards. So then we make ‘[The] Last of Us Part II,’ and we try the best we can to make it all consistent, and to say, ‘Okay, here are things that felt like setup, so we could pay off later in the story.'”

The Last of Us showrunners already have plans for Season 3

Druckmann further said, “Because we’re making the show, we know Left Behind, we know Last of Us Part II, so there are things, like we could have Marlene talk about Riley early on, because we have a better understanding of who Riley is, because Left Behind has already come out. We know where a lot of Season 2 and 3 will go, so we could start laying things in earlier.”
