The next season, set to start filming later in the year, will feature an even bigger production as well as more clickers and shocking twists according to Druckmann’s assertions. The story’s continuation is expected to be the backdrop for more polarized opinions that the finale will create in an audience that is not aware of the game. Because there’s no room for optimism within the universe in The Last of Us, and the story of the two characters is brimming with shockingly dark events.

Score - 7.9


The TV adaptation of The Last of Us has come to an end with its ups and downs. Although the series, which has experienced its strongest moments with the most remarkable storytelling episodes of recent years, meets the expectations in its finale, which feels like a fait accompli due to its short duration, it cannot provide enough material for the audience to erase the thought of "something is missing". While Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin are proud to have a very good adaptation, it is up to us, the viewers, to hope that the second season will not act on a larger scale and in such haste.
