The Last of Us franchise, a cornerstone of narrative-driven gaming, is set to continue its gripping tale on HBO with the announcement of Kaitlyn Dever playing Abby in the show's eagerly awaited second season. This casting news follows the critically acclaimed first season, which aired from January 15 to March 12, 2023.


Kaitlyn Dever is no stranger to the world of Naughty Dog, the studio behind The Last of Us. In 2016, she brought to life the character of Cassie in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Since then, Dever's career has flourished with roles in various movies and TV shows, showcasing her versatile acting skills.

Without delving into spoilers, Abby's character is central to the narrative of The Last of Us Part II.

Fans of the game know what's coming, but for newcomers, Abby's role promises a journey filled with intense drama and deep character development.

With production set to begin soon and episodes slated for release in 2025, season two of The Last of Us is poised to follow the storyline of The Last of Us Part II closely. The first season's success, marked by Emmy-winning performances, sets a high bar for the upcoming season.
