Following the Season 1 finale of The Last of Us, ET and ComicBook‘s The Last of Pods podcast broke down the ninth episode and fiest season with exclusive insight from Ellie actor Bella Ramsey. ET‘s Ash Crossan and ComicBook‘s Brandon Davis kicked off the episode by reacting to the fiinal hour of the apocalyptic video game adaptation’s first season before bringing an exclusive segment with Ramsey into the conversation. The Last of Pods is broken into three sections, with the first offering a reaction and disussion about the latest episode, the second recapping the season as a whole, and the third previewing what’s to come in Season 2 based on the games. New episodes of The Last of Pods broadcast on the ComicBook YouTube channel following episodes of The Last of Us and later on Paramount+’s Mixible channel.
“I’m really excited. It still feels surreal to me that it’s going to go again,” Ramsey said of Season 2. “But also, I don’t want to go into it comparing it to the experience of the first season, because I’m like that’s never going to … Season 1 of The Last of Us was the best year of my life, and it’s not going to be the same. I just have to go into it being like, ‘This is Season 2 and I love season one, but this is just going to be different.’ I’m really excited. I just, yeah, want to be back in Canada with Craig Mazin and Pedro [Pascal] for a little bit. It’s going to be really nice. I’m really excited.”
The ninth episode of The Last of Pods was broadcast on the ComicBook.com YouTube channel and is available on all major podcast platforms. Links to subscribe or download to and watch The Last of Pods can be found below!
