WGA Strike Halts HBO’s The Last of Us Season 2 Casting

The insanely successful Last of Us adaptation is caught in the crossfire of the Writers Guild of America strike. The hit show’s co-creator and showrunner, Craig Mazin, was seen on the picket line supporting the strike, halting season two casting (GQ has a great primer).

Variety reports that casting preparations will be halted until the strike ends. Due to a lack of scriptwriters, the casting team has reportedly asked actors to read lines from The Last of Us: Part II, the game that will inspire the upcoming season.

It’s too early to tell, but Vancouver shooting is expected to resume in early 2024. The first season’s seventh episode, “Left Behind,” was written by Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann, who also created the IP. Mazin wrote the rest. They co-wrote the series premiere and finale.

HBO’s The Last of Us: Will the writer’s strike last? Take care of your writers—Lost and Heroes never recovered from the last WGA strike.

This Resident Evil Avengers-esque team-up features Leon S. Kennedy, Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield, Claire Redfield, and Rebecca Chambers.

The T-Virus and killer whales take the gang to Alcatraz in San Francisco Bay, where a new nightmare awaits. In magnificent slow motion and with progressively heavier ordinance, the Dream Team will supposedly destroy zombies, Lickers, mutant orcas, and anything else foolish or nasty enough to stand in their path.

Diablo 4’s post-launch support will keep you playing for years, according to Blizzard. General manager Rod Fergusson confirmed two expansions and free content updates.

“As I sit here, we’re about to launch the main game; we’re finishing up season one; we’re working on season two; we’re working on expansion one; we’re kicking off expansion two,” he told PC Gamer on the Kinda Funny Xcast. These two DLCs may release sooner than expected. Fergusson says the live service model lets Blizzard release content faster than Diablo III.

With tens of hours of content in the base game, Diablo 4 is massive. This could be Destiny 2 or Genshin Impact, with seasons and DLC. That thought excites or frightens you. Leave a comment and check out our Diablo 4 guide for help with the PS5 and PS4 games.
