Danny Ramirez, Tati Gabrielle, Ariela Barer and Spencer Lord will all appear in the highly-anticipated season 2 of The Last Of Us. 

Filming of The Last Of Us season 2 kicked off in February and Pedro Pascal recently told press that it had got to an “amazing” start

The HBO show has now added Danny Ramirez, Tati Gabrielle, Ariela Barer and Spencer Lord to its cast, as reported by Variety

Ramirez will play the role of Manny who is being described as “a loyal soldier whose sunny outlook belies the pain of old wounds and a fear that he will fail his friends when they need him most.”

Gabrielle will play Nora, “a military medic struggling to come to terms with the sins of her past” while Barer’s character Mel is being described as “a young doctor whose commitment to saving lives is challenged by the realities of war and tribalism.”

Finally, Lord will play Owen, “a gentle soul trapped in a warrior’s body, condemned to fight an enemy he refuses to hate.”

To gamers, these are all familiar names, but we’ll keep things spoiler-free for now. 

The four actors join Pascal, Bella Ramsey, Kaitlyn Dever, Catherine O’Hara, Young Mazino and Isabela Merced in the highly-anticipated second season, which is expected to hit HBO in the US and Sky in the UK in 2025. 

The second season will continue the story of Pascal’s Joel and Ramsey’s Ellie, the latter who is immune to the fungus that has destroyed most of the world. Pascal picked up a SAG award for his role in the series just last weekend, followed by Nick Offerman picking up an Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Performance In A New Scripted Series for his role as Bill in episode 3 of season 1. 

Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann, who is also the creative head of video game studio Naughty Dog, are returning to write and produce The Last Of Us season 2. Both directed episodes of season one but it’s not clear whether they will do that in season two. 

Earlier today (1st March), we reported that a senior artist at Naughty Dog that had worked on both The Last Of Us Part I and The Last Of Us Part II, had lost his job in the Playstation layoffs.
