Pedro Pascal discusses the shocking event coming in Season 2.
Actor Pedro Pascal recently spoke about his career path, and inevitably, season 2 of ‘The Last of Us’ was a topic of interest. The show was renewed for a second season in January 2023, but a release date has not yet been announced.
Fans of ‘The Last of Us’ video game, which the hit TV show is based off of, know what’s around the corner in this next season.
Though some wonder if the show’s script will stray from the source material, others think any changes are unlikely. Theories on how the twist will play out in the show’s adaptation are already circulating the Internet.
Spoiler Warning for ‘The Last of Us Part 2′ video game and potentially for season 2.
Pedro Pascal believes the show will keep the twist
The next season has not yet started filming. Even so, Pascal told Esquire how he is preparing for the potential end to his character’s role. Many are dreading the twist, which involves the unfortunate demise of Pascal’s character Joel.
“It wouldn’t make sense to follow the first game so faithfully only to stray severely from the path,” he stated in the interview.
“So, yeah, that’s my honest answer.”
Pascal has not yet played the game nor seen in detail what exactly happens to his character but is a strong proponent of keeping the show authentic to the video game it is based on.

Pascal isn’t the only one preparing himself for a heart-wrenching end to Joel’s run on ‘The Last of Us’ – everyone else is reflecting on the bittersweet progression of the HBO hit show, too.
“If that does take place in the show, I don’t know that I’m emotionally ready for it,” Bella Ramsey revealed, referring to the potential demise of Joel. Ramsey plays Ellie in the video game’s TV adaptation.
Craig Mazin, co-creator of ‘The Last of Us’ (alongside Neil Druckmann), had a different take on what seemed like an emotional moment for fans and cast alike.
“This should be fairly obvious to anyone by now, but I don’t fear killing characters,” he stated.
“But the important thing to note is that neither Neil nor I feel constrained by the source material.”
