The second season of The Last of Us would avoid the temporary jump of the sequel
The story of Joel and Ellie continue in the second season of the series The Last of Us after the completion of the first in the ninth chapter, which will be released at the beginning of this week. Although the details that we know about this sequel to HBO’s success are rather few, Craig Mazin, his showrunnerhas shed some light in an interview with Collider about the current state of the project and what both viewers who have seen the story for the first time and those who enjoyed the games at the time can expect. by Naughty Dog.
Between the first title and the second there is a time jump of about five years, although apparently the second season of the series could omit it if we take Mazin’s statements into account. “The jump in time is important, up to a point. It reflects the changing nature of the relationship between Ellie and Joel“, Mazin commented when asked about how the time jump will be treated. “There is a main change in time, but there are also moments that are seen, which are between the events of the main story of The Last of Us Part II and the history of The Last of Us Part I“, he added.
Is the first season up to the task?
“The Last of Us It is an excellent series that perfectly encompasses all the elements that made the video game of the same name so important in its day. It is a deep and existentialist drama, which addresses like few others the survival of the human being in difficult times, as well as the importance of love or decisions in dark moments. The work of Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin has been able to convey the story of Joel and Ellie with fidelity and skill, presenting us as this unlikely couple, whose disrupted reality forces them to face who they are and how far are they able to go to preserve what gives meaning to their lives“, we conclude in our opinion without spoilers.
