A new video of HBO’s The Last of Us season 2 has been leaked. The footage shows Bella Ramsey and Isabela Merced filming a scene on a British Columbia, Canada, set.

In the video via @TheLastofUsNews, Ramsey’s Ellie is riding her horse, Shimmer, with Dina (Merced) hanging on to her from behind. Dina is Ellie’s romantic interest in season 2. After securing a shotgun in her bag, Ellie climbs down from Shimmer and walks away, with Dina dismounting shortly after.

The set video reveals a new hairstyle, with Ellie’s hair partially pulled back. In season 1, Ellie predominantly wore a loose ponytail. This is a major difference from The Last of Us video game, which depicts Ellie with shorter hair and bangs. The Last of Us Part II is set five years after the first game, so this new hairstyle for Ellie in season 2 likely signals a time jump. Also, Dina’s long hair is down in the video, which differs from her bun hairstyle in the game.

On May 15, HBO released new images of Ellie and Pedro Pascal’s Joel from season 2. Joel is sternly looking at someone, while Ellie holds a shotgun.

HBO’s The Last of Us is based on Naughty Dog’s video game franchise for the Sony PlayStation. The series depicts the aftermath of a pandemic caused by a mass fungal infection that ravaged society and turned contaminated humans into zombie-like creatures. Joel, a weathered smuggler, agrees to escort 14-year-old Ellie out of the quarantine zone and cross the country. Ellie is immune to the virus, meaning her DNA could be key to creating a vaccine.

Created by Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann, The Last of Us premiered in January 2023, drawing record-breaking ratings for HBO. Season 1 became the network’s most-watched debut for a series ever.

The Last of Us season 2 will air on HBO and Max in 2025.

Video game adaptations have failed to live up to the expectations of gamers for decades. That's why it's so refreshing that HBO's The Last of Us not only captures the spirit of the game that inspired it, but the show also stands as a work of art in its own right. This series has completely redefined what a video game adaptation can be, largely thanks to the showrunners, Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann. Mazin previously created the critically acclaimed Chernobyl miniseries for HBO, while Druckmann co-created The Last of Us video game franchise.

Fans will have to wait at least another year for The Last of Us season 2 to arrive. But now that the show is inching closer to restarting production, we can share everything we know about The Last of Us season 2. Next season, the series continues the story of Joel and Ellie while also introducing some important characters from the second game, The Last of Us Part II.

It's been two years since the season 3 finale, which depicted a split between Melanie Cavill (Jennifer Connelly) and Andre Layton (Daveed Diggs). Melanie leads a faction of passengers who remain on Snowpiercer for safety, while Andre and his group of survivors inhabit Big Alice as they head outside of New Eden into the unknown.

House of the Dragon season 2: Everything we know so far
A man preps for battle in House of the Dragon season 2.

Long-ime Game of Thrones fans are eagerly awaiting the return of House of the Dragon. This prequel series became a genuine phenomenon in its first season, which told the story of the friendship between Rhaenyra Targaryen and Alicent Hightower as it soured into what would eventually become an all-out civil war.
HBO renewed the show for a second season almost as soon as the first season began airing, and we already know plenty about where the show will be headed when it returns.
This post does not contain any spoilers for the show's second season, but it is informed by Fire & Blood, the Targaryen history by George R.R. Martin that the series is adapted from. The show will continue to focus on the conflict between Rhaenyra and her younger half-brother Aegon as they battle for control of the Iron Throne.

What will happen in season 2 of House of the Dragon?

Without delving into spoilers, the second season of the show is expected to pick up soon after the first season left off. Fans of the show will likely recall that that season ended with Aemond Targaryen's dragon inadvertently attacking and killing Rhaenyra's son Lucerys and his dragon. Lucerys's death is what ultimately brings what had been a simmering conflict closer to a boil, leading to a much greater level of death and destruction.
Based on the latest trailer for the new season, the story will show more of Westeros than what we saw in the previous season. Shots of characters standing atop the Wall and sailing across the seas hint that the Dance of the Dragons will impact all of Westeros as both sides gather allies from all across the Seven Kingdoms. Likewise, the trailer features shots of characters flying dragons, riding horses, and marching with entire armies, teasing a much more action-packed season that harks back to Game of Thrones at its most exciting.
We also know, thanks to an interview with one of the show's writers, that a moment known to fans as Blood and Cheese will be included on the show. The exact details of that moment are best left to the imagination. But suffice it to say that it's a moment likely to leave many fans talking.
