The Last Of Us Season 2 Shocks Fans With Massive Casting Twist For New Characters

The Last Of Us season 2 is currently under very active state of development and while many wild rumors are circulating over the internet- some new confusions are also getting a lot of attractions. We also knows that second season of this highly popular gaming adaptation is going to deliver us some of the most unexpected twists coupled with some very emotional moments (Oups! That’s a spoiler!), however, it is very important for us to know about it’s official cast (and avoid fake news).

Well, no need to go here and there because I’ve spent hours in doing research so don’t have to- as a result, I am going to deliver you some of the most authentic updates about The Last Of Us Season 2 and mainly the official casting, third season and new characters followed by a bonus episode.

So hey, without wasting much time, let’s dive into the world of Zombies!

The Last Of Us Season 2 Gets New Faces!

‘Catherine O’Hara’ Officially Joins The Cast!

One of the latest and most exclusive update that I can share is the casting of Catherine O’Hara. The actress has played many iconic roles throughout her acting carrier in Hollywood. She is very well known for playing multiple comedic characters and was first blew up via “SCTV“.

Despite her casting update, nothing has been said about her character- however, I think that she might be playing a new character or a side kick in season 2. Catherine is among the mature names of Hollywood, so she will definitely play an older character. You should also note that Maria is already played by Rutina Wesley which closes the doors for Catherine to play this specific character, other individuals also belongs to a mid range- hence, expect Catherine to play a new character or a sidekick!

‘Kaitlyn Dever’ Is Abby!

Yes, Kaitlyn Dever is among those names who are ready to take these types of risks to play a popular yet a dangerous character- which can even spoil their reputation (atleast for quiet some time). If you are a true fan of this gaming saga then you knows why I am writing this right?

Kaitlyn Dever is officially going to play Abby in The Last Of Us season 2 which is already getting a lot of different views from fans. Those who loves Kaitlyn from the bottom of their hearts are even suggesting her to say “NO” to this role, but our beloved actress is in mood to perform this stunt.

Abby is a character who brutally murders our main protagonist Joel and shocks the players by turning the tables. This character do have her own backstory, but nobody is going to pay much attention when you kills a character with whom the nerves of our hearts were connected. I mean, it’s not an easy task to see the death of our favorite character with whom we’ve spent hours clearing the levels and surviving the brutal world, Is it?

‘Isabela Merced’ Is Dina!

Yes! The beautiful and charming Isabela Merced is officially joining the cast of The Last Of Us season 2 as Dina. Some hints and easter eggs were already teased in the first season that were caught by many eagle-eye viewers, so we were just waiting for an official announcement to know about the face who will play this pretty character.

If you don’t know or if you are a beginner then let me tell you that Dina is a love interest of our Ellie. She meets Ellie at the food area (I am not able to recall the name of exact place) where she feels a special kind of connectivity. The game later reveals that Dina gets ready to help our Ellie in taking the revenge of the murder of Joel and hence, gets ready to give her everything just to help her love interest.

Isabela Merced is just a perfect call for this role. This young and very talented actress has played many different roles and she can be seen in ‘Madame Web‘ movie which is a type of spin-off from the Sony’s Spider-Man universe.

‘Young Mazino’ Is Jesse!

Next comes the role of Jesse who is definitely going to play a very important part throughout the second season. Luckily, HBO is moving forward with Young Mazino who is all set to portray this character. For those who don’t really know about Jesse then he is a male character from this popular gaming universe who is also one of Ellie’s friends. He is also a leader of the Patrol groups in the community of Jackson.

Jesse later joins Ellie on her quest for taking revenge of the murder of Joel and hence, creates a perfect trio of Ellie, Dina and Jesse. Young Mazino is a perfect casting call for this specific character, especially because of his ethinicity and physical appearance right? Remember the iconic dialogue of Jesse:

My friend’s problems are my problems!

It’s not a joke or random report or rumor, but HBO itself is bringing us The Last Of Us season 3 and hence, more of Ellie (sadly our Joel will die during the events of The Last Of Us season 2). The second season is currently under development and many big updates are definitely going to land in the near future.
