We now know where The Last of Us season 2 will be primarily filmed, and the general location might be familiar to anyone who’s played The Last of Us Part II. The shooting location was made public on March 31st.
The Last of Us season 1 was a breakout hit when it premiered back in January. The show enjoyed overwhelming critical success and was also a hit with viewers, averaging over 30 million of them per episode at one point. Season 1 shooting was mostly conducted in Calgary, with other Alberta locales standing in for Texas and Wyoming.
For season 2, shooting for The Last of Us heads west to Vancouver in British Columbia. As fans of the second game in Naughty Dog’s popular action-adventure series will know, the location hints at that game’s plot, as much of it is set in the Pacific Northwest—particularly Seattle. As depicted in the events of The Last of Us Part II, there a religious cult known as the Seraphites are locked in a power struggle with militant group The Washington Liberation Front (WLF) for control of the city.
When we might see something of The Last of Us season 2 is anyone’s guess at this point, although Ellie actress Bella Ramsey was quoted as saying recently that “It will be a while.” Ramsey also indicated that shooting would begin either at the end of 2023 or early 2024. And then there would be a post-production period lasting several months after that. At least The Last of Us fans will have the season 1 finale to debate over in the meantime.
