Thanks to GameFragger.com, we have the first images of Pedro Pascal as Joel and Bella Ramsey as Ellie from the upcoming second season of HBO's The Last of Us.

Shared by Casey Bloys, Chairman and CEO, HBO and Max Content, during the Warner Bros. Discovery Upfront presentation, both characters look very much in line with their respective video game counterparts, though there are already more complaints on social media about Ramsey looking too young for the role.

She is now 20, a year older than Ellie was in The Last of Us Part II. The video game version looked quite a bit older than 19 when players were placed in her shoes, and we're sure such a youthful-looking Ellie will only make what's to come in season 2 more harrowing.

It's also been confirmed that, following a record-breaking first season as the most-watched debut season of a series ever for HBO, the second season will debut in 2025 on HBO and will be available to stream on Max. 

The Last of Us season two's returning cast includes Pedro Pascal as Joel, Bella Ramsey as Ellie, Gabriel Luna as Tommy, and Rutina Wesley as Maria.

Previously announced new cast members include Kaitlyn Dever as Abby, Isabela Merced as Dina, Young Mazino as Jesse, Ariela Barer as Mel, Tati Gabrielle as Nora, Spencer Lord as Owen, and Danny Ramirez as Manny. Catherine O’Hara also guest stars.
 
The show is written and executive produced by Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann. The series is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television and is also executive produced by Carolyn Strauss, Jacqueline Lesko, Cecil O’Connor, Asad Qizilbash, Carter Swan, and Evan Wells. 
 
Based on the critically acclaimed video game The Last of Us, developed by Naughty Dog for the PlayStation consoles, the story takes place twenty years after modern civilization has been destroyed. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone.

What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey, as they both must traverse the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.

We're guessing a trailer for The Last of Us season 2 is probably still several months away, but this sneak peek is a great way to get fans excited for the show's return. Of course, if you've played the game, you may be more nervous than anything else...

Yea she definitely looks like she hasn't aged at all. They should've maybe re-casted for season 2 if we are getting a time jump like the game.

@GhostDog - This is before the big time skip.

@GhostDog - either the time skip isn't gonna be as big in the game, or maybe they have cast an older Ellie and they're only tell us that person is cast as Abby instead

@GhostDog - Thing is, Bella is exactly the age she should be to play Part II Ellie. They can just manipulate how much older, or taller even, Ellie can look when she’s animated, but the same thing happened with Ahsoka. It wasn’t until her live action appearance as a kid did it really sink in how young Ahsoka was during the Clone Wars, and the same thing is happening here. Ellie was 19 during Part II, and what you’re looking at here is a 19 year old girl who’s about to go through some even crazier shit and a journey of revenge and it’s harder to digest because she looks her age. But if you deep it, it actually adds to the narrative value.

@bkmeijer1 - It’s a 5 year time skip. It was never big to begin with. People just don’t realise how young Ellie still was in Part II. She’s gone from 14-19. Most woman don’t actually grow much taller between that time in real life, but game Ellie is an animated character and her growth spurt was, let’s be honest, unrealistic.

@FireandBlood - that's true. Don't think Bella Ramsey changed that much either compared to GoT, and that's some five years ago too.

Also, yeah. That growth spurt felt closer to ten years. Haven't played the remake though, so don't know if that falls more in line though.

Is there anyone in this show who isn't miscast. I like Pedro in it but still. And we all know he's done after s2 so Bella gonna lead the show?

@McMurdo - "Is there anyone in this show who isn't miscast." going by season one, every character who wasn't race swapped.

I wonder if Joel meets his fate in episode 1, similar to the game, or if they stretch it out across the entire season and make season 3 Elle's revenge.

@hainesy - extending Joel's time on the show might be the plan based on previous interviews. I'd say he dies at the end of season 2.

@hainesy - I think they should have the entirety of S2 be the events up to his death in chronological order (including the flashbacks and the Jackson chapter). S3 can then focus on Seattle completely

@Th3Batman - I’m guessing he will in the penultimate episode.

"First Look At Pedro Pascal..."

What's the big deal about a first look at Pedro? He looks like Pedro.
