We first met Isaac Dixon in The Last of Us Part II; the leader of the Washington Liberation Front, he's an antagonist in the game and someone it appears we'll soon learn more about. 

A newly revealed set photo from The Last of Us season 2 shows Jeffrey Wright (The Batman) suited up as a younger version of the villain. The game only revealed a few minor details about his past, including the fact he came to live in Seattle after serving in the United States Marine Corps. In the present, he's Abby's boss and she's his most trusted soldier. 

Interestingly, it seems Isaac is working for FEDRA at this point in the timeline, suggesting the TV series will explore how and why he turned on them, ultimately becoming one of the many people who rebelled against military control. 

It's also possible The Last of Us TV show's Isaac will be portrayed as being slightly younger than his video game counterpart.

According to an official character description, this take will be "the quietly powerful leader of a large militia group who sought liberty but instead has become mired in an endless war against a surprisingly resourceful enemy."

Take a first look at Wright's Isaac in the X post below.

The Last of Us season 2's returning cast includes Pedro Pascal as Joel, Bella Ramsey as Ellie, Gabriel Luna as Tommy, and Rutina Wesley as Maria.

Previously announced new cast members include Kaitlyn Dever as Abby, Isabela Merced as Dina, Young Mazino as Jesse, Ariela Barer as Mel, Tati Gabrielle as Nora, Spencer Lord as Owen, Danny Ramirez as Manny, and Jeffrey Wright as Isaac. Catherine O’Hara also guest stars.
 
The show is written by showrunners Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann. The series is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television and is also executive-produced by Carolyn Strauss, Jacqueline Lesko, Cecil O’Connor, Asad Qizilbash, Carter Swan, and Evan Wells. 
 
Based on the critically acclaimed video game The Last of Us, developed by Naughty Dog for the PlayStation consoles, the story takes place twenty years after modern civilization has been destroyed. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, 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.

The Last of Us season 2 will premiere on HBO in 2025.
