We’re only one episode into The Last of Us, but fans are already wondering how the adaptation of Part II will be tackled if the show ends up getting a second season. At the time of writing, season two hasn’t been officially confirmed, but it seems very likely given the popularity that the series has garnered so far that it’s going to happen at some point. This raises the big question - who’s going to play Abby?
Abby is a very contentious character, for reasons that The Last of Us Part II players will know all too well, but her role is so important in the sequel that you can be sure that a lot of effort would go into her live-action casting. So far, the TV series has picked some phenomenal actors for its various roles - Nico Parker has been praised heavily for her performance as Sarah in the heartbreaking premiere. Now, as ComicBook reports, fans are wondering if Abby’s future actor has already been confirmed.
Take a look at a preview of what’s coming up next in The Last of Us below.
A number of fans have pointed out that Shannon Berry (The Wilds, Offspring) is followed by The Last of Us co-creator Neil Druckmann on Instagram. Berry follows him, too, as well as TLoU stars Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal, and the official The Last of Us account. Fans are speculating if this could mean anything at all - it could be a total coincidence, but she does bear a striking resemblance to Abby, and has previously acknowledged so herself.

Chances are that it’ll be a long time before the adaptation of Part II hits screens, if at all. It’s been years since the series was announced in the first place, and we’ve not even seen the second episode yet. That said, it’s definitely been worth the wait so far - new episodes are airing on Sundays in the US and Mondays in the UK.
