The Last of Us Season 2

The casting process for the second season encountered a delay in May 2023, attributed to the Writers Guild of America strike. During this hiatus, actors participated in auditions using scenes from the video game, The Last of Us Part II, as alternative scripts due to the unavailability of the original scripts. The production team aimed to kick off the casting for the second season by focusing on the character Abby. According to co-creator/executive producer Craig Mazin, and later confirmed by the Los Angeles Times, Abby’s role had already been filled before the strike. The official announcement of Kaitlyn Dever’s casting as Abby was made on January 9, 2024, followed by Mazin’s role as Jesse on January 10, and Merced’s portrayal of Dina on January 11.
