The Last of Us producers want Bella Ramsey to return for Season 2
It’s been over a month since the last episode of The Last of Us came to HBO. Despite the fact that Season 2 seems distant and most of the details remain a mystery, fans are beginning to wonder what the plot will be and who the actors involved in the project will be. More importantly, is Bella Ramsey coming back?
While it’s too early to tell, producers Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin have already hinted that Season 2 will adapt the second video game, or at least part of it, They consider that the plot of the sequel will need more than one season to be adapted.

So, fans of the controversial The Last of Us: Part II they know that there is a time jump and that the plot revolves around Ellie, who is now 19 years old instead of 14. Thus, the community assures that Bella Ramsey, actress who played Ellie in the first season, is too young to give life to the character in his adult phase.

Will Bella Ramsey play Ellie in the second season of The Last of Us?
That being said, what do those responsible for the show think? In an interview, Neil Druckmann, co-founder of Naughty Dog and producer of the TV show, expressed his hope that the 19-year-old actress would return to play her character in Season 2 and beyond.
“I can’t imagine that version of Ellie being someone else (…) We are extremely lucky to have Bella, and the only way we would ever consider auditioning again is if Bella said, ‘I don’t want to work with you anymore.’ . Even so, I’m not sure we’d grant him that. We could still force her back to Season 2,” Neil Druckmann said.
On the other hand, the producer and screenwriter Craig Mazin seconded these statements and expressed his interest in Bella Ramsey playing Ellie in Season 2 of The Last of Us. Regarding the criticism of the young appearance of the actress, she remarked in the interview for The Wrap that she is 19 years old, just the age of the character in the second video game.

“Sometimes it will be radically different and sometimes it will be slightly different, but it will be its own thing. It won’t be exactly like the game. It will be what Neil and I want to do. We will do (Season 2) with Bella,” Craig Mazin said.
Thus, everything indicates that the young actress who played Ellie will repeat her role in the next batch of episodes. When will she arrive? Everything seems to indicate that there is still a long time to return to this post-apocalyptic world, since Season 2 is still in the writing phase.
But tell us, do you think it’s a good idea to keep Bella Ramsey in the next season? Let us read you in the comments.
