HBO’s The Last of Us has got off to an excellent start, and it’s clear that the show has been a great critical and commercial success for the network. The first season, consisting of nine episodes, will cover the events of the first game and its DLC, Left Behind, but what about future seasons? Is that in the pipeline?

As per Bella Ramsey, who plays deuteragonist Ellie in the TV show, it’s very much on the cards. Speaking to BBC, Ramsey recently said that a second season of the show is “pretty likely” to happen.

“If people keep watching, I think [a second series] is pretty likely,” she said. “It’s down to the guys at HBO.”

That said, a second season hasn’t yet been officially greenlit by HBO. Ramsey said, “There’s nothing confirmed yet so we’ll have to wait and see.”

The viewership numbers that HBO has released for The Last of Us’ first two episodes have been impressive, with the series premiere having tallied over 18 million viewers since its debut over a week ago, and the second episode having debuted with 5.7 million viewers.

The TV show’s success has bled into increased sales for the games as well, with both The Last of Us Part 1 for the PS5 and The Last of Us Remastered for the PS4 having enjoyed significant boosts in sales in the UK last week.

Head on over here to check out a trailer for The Last of Us’ third episode, which premieres on January 29.
