Will there be a season 3 of The Last of Us?

Season 3 of The Last of Us still has no official confirmation. However, the following makes a season 3 very likely:

  • The show’s huge success: Both viewership records and reviews from critics are great for The Last of Us. HBO usually continues its successful productions.
  • Source material: The Last of Us Part II offers ample material for season 3. The series, which tells the story of the first game in 1 season, can also include the sequel’s story.
  • Explanation: The show’s creators have given positive signals about possible sequels. It is implicitly stated that Part II could be spread over two seasons, as it is difficult to tell the story of the second game in one season.

In short, season 3 of The Last of Us is a real possibility, even without official confirmation. We can say that the success of season 2 will make this even more likely.
