According to speculations, the first season will cover the events of the first game. However, it has not yet been established if this is the case. Nevertheless, many fans have already anticipated that the second season will cover the game’s sequel. As a result, there are already rumors about the cast of the show’s second season.

The Last of Us Season 2 rumors hint at the cast for Abby

The iconic characters of Joel and Ellie are played by brilliant actors like Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey in the HBO adaptation. But fans were skeptical of the cast, particularly the casting of the Game of Thrones actress as Ellie. They thought the actress didn’t resemble the in-game Ellie. But after seeing the first episode, all doubts were resolved, as the actors astonished everyone with their outstanding performance.

A recent rumor suggests that the Australian actress Shannon Berry may feature in the second season of The Last of Us. In the second installment of the game, the 21-year-old actress will play Abby. Neil Druckmann, the game’s creator and co-creator of the TV series, began following the Australian actress. However, because it is still a rumor, fans must wait for an official announcement.

How did fans react to this rumor?

The fans’ reactions to the rumor were divided. Some were pleased to learn about them since they believed Berry would be an excellent choice to play the character due to her resemblance. However, other fans stated that they are more concerned with the actor’s performance than the likeness. Let’s have a look at some of the fan reactions.
