The Final of Us was a fairly darkish narrative about forming relationships in an unforgiving world, however followers weren’t prepared for the locations the sequel would go when The Final of Us Half II launched again in 2020. With HBO at the moment gearing up for the premiere of their Final of Us collection primarily based on the primary recreation, we now have affirmation that also they are planning to adapt the sequel centered on Ellie.
This was confirmed by way of a synopsis in Empire Journal (by way of @DomTheBomb):
With the collection planning to cowl Left Behind and broaden on some components from the primary recreation, I’ve a sense that the present gained’t be capable to cowl everything of Half I, and can as a substitute go away some story from the sport to happen within the second season.
Since there’s a vital time bounce between Half I and Half II, I believe that Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann have deliberate to inject some extra story going down in between each video games, and that would represent one or two extra seasons. The entire cope with Abby will in all probability happen someday in Season 3 or 4.
Then once more, I’m simply speculating right here. What are the percentages they do one thing fully completely different that no person might have even guessed?
For now, followers await the premiere of The Final of Us on HBO Max this coming Jan. 16, 2023. The Final of Us video games are at the moment playable for PlayStation 4|5.
