The second season of The Last of Us recently kicked off production in Vancouver, and its cast is getting better by the day. Danny Ramirez, Ariela Barer, Tati Gabrielle, and Spencer Lord are the latest stars to join the next chapter of HBO’s acclaimed video game adaptation.

Danny Ramirez (Top Gun: Maverick, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) joined Season 2 as Manny, a loyal soldier who tries to hide old wounds with his sunny outlook on life.

Ariela Barer (How To Blow Up a Pipeline, Runaways) will join him as a young doctor Mel, who must face the horrors of war and tribalism, while still staying committed to saving lives.

Tati Gabrielle’s (You, Kaleidoscope) character Nora has been described as a military medic struggling to come to terms with the sins of her past. Spencer Lord (Heartland, Family Law) will portray Owen, a warrior condemned to fight an enemy he refuses to hate.

The second season of The Last of Us was packed with talent even before the four new cast members hopped on board. Kaitlyn Dever, Young Mazino, and Isabela Merced will also join the leading duo Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey in the second season of the post-apocalyptic drama, which is currently filming in Vancouver, Canada.
