Kaitlyn Dever sera co-vedette de la deuxième saison de HBO

Kaitlyn Dever to co-star in HBO’s second season

Kaitlyn Dever She was set to play the role of Ellie in The Last of Us for HBO. He almost did it. A year after its premiere, it is confirmed that the actress Creedme o Super Empollonas She will join the cast of the series with a twist: she will reproduce Bella Ramsey on paper that she has touched with her fingertips. Dever will play Abby in the second season of the hit TV series. And be careful, this is confirmed a little over a month after the start of filming.

Dever’s signing was an open secret. The creators of the series had already pushed the date back to 2023, but Hollywood strikes have delayed all current projects. If there’s anything scarier in the movie and TV industry than those infected with The last of us , are the disgruntled writers and actors. Now, we must admit that PlayStation Productions does not give a single point: we are on the eve of the launch of The Last of Us Part II Remastered, the game which will answer the origins and motivations of the character of Abby on PS5.

For those who haven’t played the Naughty Dog games yet, Abby’s role is one of the two main pillars of the sequel and her story, along with that of Ellie, will serve as a backdrop to both (or three ) next seasons. And although there are surprises that are better reserved for the video game or the series. Luckily, in the description HBO gave to Variety of the character, they know very well what to say and how much to talk about her.

Abby is a capable soldier whose black-and-white worldview is challenged as she seeks revenge on those closest to her.

Additionally, Naughty Dog fans will find Kaitlyn Dever’s voice familiar if they play with the English voices: in 2016, she played none other than Cassie Drake in Uncharted: A Thief’s End. At the end everything stays at home.

Filming of the second season of The last of us begins in mid-February 2024, and HBO itself has announced that its television premiere will take place starting in 2025. Hopefully. Meanwhile, Warner and PlayStation Productions have their work cut out to reap rewards for the first batch of episodes.

Regardless, and while there are still new signings to be confirmed, it will be interesting to see how the flesh-and-blood versions of Joel (Pedro Pascal), Ellie (Bella Ramsey), and the recently signed Abby evolve. And who knows? We might even see Bill and Frank again.
