The events of The Last of Us Part II takes place five years after the events of Part I, which played its first season. So, these are reasons to ask: Will Bella Ramsey re-cast?
“One of the things about the casting process that is difficult is that we invite people to join us in this process, and we know everything and nobody knows anything but what they know, which is the game,” Mazin said Fun every week March 12. “We know what we’re going to do in terms of costume and makeup and hair, but more importantly, we also know the spirit and soul of the actor.”
To put it more succinctly: Don’t expect a new Ellie in season two.
“The only way we can, always consider re-casting Bella is if she said, ‘I don’t want to work with you guys anymore,'” added Druckmann. “And even then, we’re not sure we’ll give that. We might even force him to come back for a second season.”
