THE LAST OF US Season 2 Spotted Filming in Kamloops, BC

Are there clickers in Kamloops?

HBO’s smash hit The Last of Us filmed a season 2 scene earlier this week at its Greenplace Market set built outside of Kamloops, B.C.

Monday was sunny on set like the photo above but on “Tuesday night it snowed like mad for a bit and they were out filming in it”, according to a local The Last of Us fan on Reddit.

Those who’ve played the video game, know Greenplace as the market full of the Infected that Ellie (Bella Ramsey) and Dina (Isabela Merced) visit on one of their patrols on horseback outside the safe haven of Jackson, Wyoming.

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.

Season one left us with Joel and Ellie heading back to Jackson, Wyoming, a walled community of survivors from the fungal pandemic led by Joel’s brother Tommy Miller (Gabriel Luna).

Production moved from Alberta to British Columbia for season 2 and built a massive Jackson set at Britannia Beach on the Sea to Sky Highway. Is this a replacement for Canmore, Alberta as Jackson?

Co-creator Craig Mazin and lead Bella Ramsey arrived in Vancouver in January for pre-production, along with new cast members Isabela Merced (who plays Ellie’s new Jackson friend Dina) and Young Mazino (who plays Jackson scout Jesse).

Lead Pedro Pascal followed in February and recently spoke about what it was like to be back shooting the series.:

Filming is going amazing. It’s awe inspiring the focus and dedication that everyone has going into season 2. of The Last of Us. Craig Mazin, Bella Ramsey, for me are this kind of guide and leadership that I’ve not experienced before.

It’s incredible to be back home with them creatively and everybody, our entire crew, they’re working harder than I could even imagine, more than our first season ….which is close to impossible. — Pedro Pascal to Deadline: Hollywood on the SAG Awards red carpet.
