Craig Mazin, showrunner on HBO’s highly acclaimed adaptation of “The Last of Us” video game series, confirms that the second season will begin production on February 12th in Vancouver.

Mazin announced the start date for filming as part of the “A Night in the Writers’ Room” panel which saw writers from popular drama series like “Silo,” “The Diplomat,” “Justified: City Primeval,” “The Curse” and “The Morning Show” coming together.

The panel also confirmed “Silo” is already in production on its second season, “The Diplomat” will resume its production this coming week, and “The Morning Show” will shoot its fourth season in the Spring.

“The Last of Us” begins its second season shoot over a full year since the show had its debut back in mid-January this year where it became a cultural event. It’s expected filming will run through all of next year.

Series star Bella Ramsey tells IndieWire she’s well aware of the pressure they’re under for the second season and says it has the potential to be even better than the first:

“I know that that’s like the big fear, that all of us working on the show, and probably the rest of the world have, is that Season 2 isn’t going to be as good as Season 1. But I have a lot of faith in the creators. And I think they’re spectacular. So I think I think we’re going to do great. I think we will top it.”

No casting decisions have been made public at this time for the new run, though Kaitlyn Dever is reportedly rumored to be in talks to play the key role of Abby Anderson.
