So far, individuals have really, really liked The Last of Us; it introduced 22 % extra viewers from the collection premiere to episode two, which debuted final Sunday. There will probably be 9 episodes within the first season, so there’s nonetheless various present to go.
Since we’re nonetheless early in season one, it’s unclear the place precisely season 2 would possibly decide up; we don’t but know if the present will finish on the similar spot the primary recreation does. But I’ve to think about season 2 will adapt many components of The Last of Us Part II. (If you’re experiencing The Last of Us for the primary time via the present, I strongly advise in opposition to researching something concerning the second recreation. If you’ll be able to, I’d suggest simply taking part in it.)
