The showrunner of the acclaimed HBO series The Last of Us announced 4 seasons and talked about the procedure of selecting an actress for Abby.

Craig Mazin talks to The Hollywood Reporter about the shows future plans, including whether HBO has secured a good budget for the sequel given the show’s success and scope.

Even though we have a principled debate regarding the premise of creating a second season, a third, a fourth, I always know they work in good faith and appreciate the creative value of the show, says Mazin.

After responding to this response, the director was asked if the show had that many seasons.

I think you may have three or five. But there is no such a big number as those of four. Some seasons will require less episodes because we are telling and some will require more, he responded.

The series first season based on the 2013 PS3 game Last of Us, consisted of nine episodes that continued to break records in broadcasting. The Last of Us became the most watched series of all time on HBO, and was nominated for 24 Emmy Awards.

Whether an actor was selected for Abby by Mazin in the second season was exhilarating.

Maybe. The strikes stopped us on the way. Abby was the first role we wanted to take. When we announce the two main actors and the people ask: Really? Some people may disagree, but I think we’ve done it right, and I think the audience should feel it.

Druckmann has hinted at plans for a third Third: Last of us.
