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.

Season One left us with Joel and Ellie heading back to Jackson, Wyoming, a thriving community of survivors from the fungal pandemic.

Official character description: Abby is a skilled soldier whose black-and-white view of the world is challenged as she seeks vengeance for those she loved.

Our casting process for season two has been identical to season one: we look for world-class actors who embody the souls of the characters in the source material. Nothing matters more than talent, and we’re thrilled to have an acclaimed performer like Kaitlyn join Pedro [Pascal], Bella [Ramsey] and the rest of our family. — The Last of Us showrunners Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann in a joint statement.

Kaitlyn Dever is best known for her roles in Unbelievable, Book Smart and Dopesick.
