O’Hara is joining a burgeoning cast of newcomers to the acclaimed series who include: Kaitlyn Dever (No One Will Save You), Isabela Merced (Madame Web) and Young Mazino (Beef).
Dever will star as Abby, a skilled soldier whose black-and-white view of the world is challenged as she seeks vengeance for those she loved. Merced will portray Dina, described as “a free-wheeling spirit whose devotion to Ellie will be tested by the brutality of the world they inhabit,” while Mazino will portray Jesse, “a pillar of his community who puts everyone else’s needs before his own, sometimes at terrible cost.”
TLOU is based on the critically acclaimed PlayStation video game and takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed. Joel (Pedro Pascal), a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie (Bella Ramsey), a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey, as they both must traverse the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.
TLOU season two is expected to start production in the spring and will return to HBO in 2025.
