Spencer Lord (“Riverdale”) will play Owen, Ariela Barer (How to Blow Up a Pipeline) will play Mel, and Danny Ramirez (Top Gun: Maverick) will play Manny.

HBO describes the video game characters as follows…

  • Nora: “A military medic struggling to come to terms with the sins of her past.”
  • Owen: “A gentle soul trapped in a warrior’s body, condemned to fight an enemy he refuses to hate.”
  • Mel: “A young doctor whose commitment to saving lives is challenged by the realities of war and tribalism.”
  • Manny: “A loyal soldier whose sunny outlook belies the pain of old wounds and a fear that he will fail his friends when they need him most.”

The cast of new faces for “The Last of Us” Season 2 includes Kaitlyn Dever as Abby, Young Mazino as Jesse, and Isabela Merced as Dina, with Catherine O’Hara also on board.

The lineup of directors for Season 2 includes Mark Mylod (“Succession,” The Menu) alongside Nina Lopez-Corrado (Perry Mason), Stephen Williams (Watchmen) and Kate Herron (Loki). They join returning directors Peter Hoar, Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann.

The second season of HBO’s “The Last of Us” will adapt video game sequel The Last of Us Part II, but don’t expect the game’s events to be contained to just one season. It’s likely that the sequel’s sprawling, multi-character story will span the timeline of at least two seasons.

Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey, as they both must traverse across the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.

Pedro Pascal (“The Mandalorian”) stars in the series as Joel and Bella Ramsey (“Game of Thrones”) plays Ellie. Gabriel Luna (Terminator: Dark Fate) plays Tommy, the brother of Pascal’s Joel. Storm ReidAnna TorvJeffrey Pierce, Nick Offerman, Merle Dandridge, Nico Parker, Murray Bartlett and Con O’Neil also star in the first season of the hit series.
