The Last of Us on HBO took the world by storm this year. But now that’s over, we’re asking, when does season 2 come out? Why do we have to wait for more? It’s not fair. We want it NOW. Here’s everything we know about The Last of Us season 2
Expect more Easter Eggs

It’s based on a game
Apparently The Last of Us Part 2 is actually based on a video game called “Doki Doki Literature Club!”
It’s not coming anytime soon
