HBO images.

HBO’s smash hit The Last of Us, starring Pedro Pascal as Joel and Bella Ramsey as Ellie, is halfway through production of season 2 in the Vancouver area and has moved from the Jackson to the Seattle levels of the game.

Without giving too much away, season 2 is Ellie’s story more than Joel’s.

What is The Last of Us?

The Last of Us takes place 20 + years after modern civilization has been destroyed by a fungal pandemic. Joel (Pedro Pascal), a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle teen Ellie (Bella Ramsey) out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey as they both must traverse across the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.

After the events of season one, Joel and Ellie settle in Jackson, Wyoming, a thriving community of survivors that includes Joel’s brother Tommy (Gabriel Luna) and his wife Marina (Rutina Wesley). There Ellie makes friends with Dina (Isabela Merced) and scout Jesse (Young Mazino).
