Jeffrey Wright, The Voice Of Isaac, Will Play The Character In The Last Of Us Season 2

HBO and PlayStation have found their Isaac for The Last of Us Season 2, and it’s Jeffrey Wright, the actor behind the voice of Isaac in The Last of Us Part II. Perhaps best known for roles like The Watcher in Marvel’s What If…?, Commissioner Gordon in The Batman, and Bernard in HBO’s Westworld series, as well as his role as Thelonious “Monk” Ellison in 2023’s American Fiction, which earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor, Wright will return to Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic world to give Isaac another go. 

HBO announced this today with a quick post on X (formerly Twitter) that you can see below: 

The news of Wright’s casting comes a couple of weeks after we got our first look at Pedro Pascal’s Joel and Bella Ramsey’s Ellie in The Last of Us Season 2.

Wright joins several other newcomers to this series, which premieres next year. Booksmart’s Kaitlyn Dever will play Abby, while Young Mazino joins as Jesse. Manny, Mel, Nora, and Owen will be played by Danny Ramirez (The Falcon and the Winter SoldierTop Gun: Maverick), Ariela Barer (Runaways), Tati Gabrielle (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), and Spencer Lord (Riverdale), respectively. 

We won’t spoil these characters’ roles in The Last of Us Part II, which is likely to match their roles in HBO’s The Last of Us Season 2, but if you know, you know. 

Fans of Naughty Dog’s Last of Us games eagerly await the second season of HBO’s The Last of Us. The first season debuted in January of last year, covering the events of the first game and its Left Behind DLC. HBO quickly confirmed the show would be getting a second season, which is set to premiere next year.

We loved the first season and can’t wait to see how it adapts The Last of Us Part II, which got the remaster treatment in January. It seems we aren’t alone either – The Last of Us’ premiere was HBO’s second-largest debut since 2010, and viewers stuck around for the entire season. 

The first season of The Last of Us won eight Emmy awards. For more, read Game Informer’s review of The Last of Us and then read Game Informer’s review of The Last of Us Part II
