Bella Ramsey: The Last of Us TV Series Season 2 is 'Likely' - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 25 January 2023 / 1,681 Views
Bella Ramsey, who plays Ellie in The Last of Us HBO TV series, in an interview with BBC says a second season of the series is "likely."
"If people keep watching, I think [a second series] is pretty likely," she said. "It's down to the guys at HBO."
She added "There's nothing confirmed yet so we'll have to wait and see."
Ramsey stated that "[Video games] are so much richer than I ever imagined, being a naïve, ignorant, non-gamer. It's really cool that video games can work in a cinematic medium. Maybe it will form a blueprint for video game adaptations going forwards. It's such a good representation of how video games can be adapted in the right hands."
After one full week available, the first episode now has had 18 million viewers, which is nearly four times higher than the premiere night.
New episodes of The Last of Us TV series debut on Sundays at 9:00 pm ET/PT on HBO and HBO Max. The finale will premiere on March 12.
The first season of the show adapts the first game in the franchise. However, some episodes will "deviate greatly" due to the game and HBO series being in a different medium. Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann is one of five directors for the first season of the upcoming The Last of Us HBO TV series.
The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal plays Joel and Bella Ramey, best known for her role as Lyanna Mormont in HBO's Game of Thrones, plays Ellie.
