The first images of its protagonists show Joel (Pedro Pascal) and Ellie (Bella Ramsey) in this new season of the series, which adapts the events of the game “The Last of Us: Part II”.

The first season of the series arrived on the streaming service in early 2023 and quickly managed to captivate subscribers.

The next batch of episodes of “The Last of Us” will adapt a part of the events of the second game in the “Naughty Dog” saga. In the PlayStation title, the events take place four years after what happened in the first installment.

Possible cure

In the last episode aired, Joel and Ellie finally arrive at the Salt Lake City hospital, where they meet Marlene (Merle Dandridge), líder of The Fireflies.

She reveals that the young woman is immune to the virus and that her brain tissue could hold the key to a cure, implying that she must die.

Joel, lost not knowing what to do to avoid losing Ellie, as happened with his daughter Sarah at the beginning of the story, makes the decision to kill all the members in the medical center, including Marlene. The drama culminates with Joel and Ellie escaping.

What is the new season about?

According to the official synopsis, “in the first season, the story takes place twenty years after modern civilization has been destroyed. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle 14-year-old Ellie out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What begins as a small job soon turns into a brutal and harrowing journey, in which both must traverse the United States and depend on each other to survive.”
