Meet the cast of The Last of Us season 2

It’s almost time for The Last of Us season 2 to start filming and, in huge news for fans, there have been new additions to the cast!

After months of speculation, we finally have our Abby, with Booksmart star Kaitlyn Dever being cast. Meanwhile, Young Mazino, known for his role in Beef, has been cast as Jesse.

Adapted from the video game of the same name, The Last of Us tells the story of a world ripped apart by a deadly fungus which turns humans into terrifying zombies.

The tale is centred around Ellie (Bella Ramsey) and Joel (Pedro Pascal), who embark upon a journey to find a cure for the deadly apocalypse, encountering many friends and foes along the way.

Following backlash from a small minority of The Last of Us fans who questioned the casting of Pascal, who is of Chilean descent, and biracial star Parker, in roles that are white in the original game, Parker told Yahoo! Entertainment: “There are people for whom the game is incredibly important to them.”

She added: “But when it comes from a place where it’s just a disdain toward any kind of inclusivity, that’s where I don’t care. I don’t value that opinion and I don’t agree.”
