The first season of The Last of Us left fans very satisfied, as it masterfully adapted the first game in the saga. HBO is now working on Season 2 of the production, which will tell the story of the heartbreaking The Last of Us Part II.
Neil Druckmann, co-president of Naughty Dog and creative working on the series, got fans excited, as he hinted that the new episodes will pick up material deleted from the sequel. Players will be able to learn about it in a few months, as it will come included in The Last of Us Part II Remastered.
The Last of Us series will retake deleted scenes from Part II
In case you don't remember, The Last of Us Part II Remastered will have something called Lost Levels, which will let fans know about some playable footage that was removed for the final version of the game.
According to Druckmann, it is very possible that they will use some of this material in Season 2 of the series. The creative clarified that filming has not yet begun, so plans may change at the last minute. However, the current goal is that part of the series will be inspired by this material.
"As a tease, I will say there is at least one element from a cut level that is planned [for] the show. I say that with the caveat that we haven’t started filming the show yet and all things are subject to change based on what we ultimately feel will be best for the show," Druckmann says.
That said, fans who want to recognize every scene and location from Season 2 will have to give The Last of Us Part II Remastered a chance, which will feature other interesting new features to enhance the overall gameplay experience.
