    Catherine O'Hara will be guest starring in The Last of Us Season 2.

    The Last of Us was definitely one of the biggest and most talked about shows of 2023. Starring Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal, the series beautifully brought to TV the heartbreaking and beloved video game, thus earning countless awards for Season 1.

    Created by Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann, the series perfectly brought Ellie and Joel's story from The Last of Us Part 1 and Left Behind DLC video games to life, with casting, set design, visual effects, and more that were simply incredible.

    With Season 1 detailing the events that happen in the first game, Season 2 will now venture into what happens in The Last of Us Part II, an even more harrowing and heartbreaking journey for Ellie and Joel as they deal with the fallout from their journey to the Fireflies in hopes of creating a cure.

    While Season 1 boasted so many incredible guest stars that gave memorable performances, like Anna Torv, Nick Offerman, Murray Bartlett, Melanie Lynskey, Keivonn Montreal Woodard, and Lamar Johnson, this upcoming season will feature even more massive characters from the video games.

    There are still several big casting announcements to come, namely fans (like me) are probably waiting anxiously to hear who has been cast as Yara and Lev, two other major characters from The Last of Us Part II.

    And, I can't wait to see how the show hopefully incorporates more of the voice actors from the games into Season 2 of the show. Like, I will be keeping my eye out for Shannon Woodward, who played Dina, please and thank you.
