The Last of Us Actor Addresses Season 3's Possibility

The Last of Us has just aired recently, and it still has yet to air its season one finale on March 12, but because fans immediately embraced the apocalyptic show, The Last of Us was renewed for a second season, and one of the show’s actors hinted that there’s also a possibility that the video game adaptation will be stretched out to more seasons, particularly a third one.

The Last of Us currently holds a 97% score on Rotten Tomatoes and is hailed as HBO's second-largest debut in the last 13 years, trailing only Game of Thrones' prequel House of the Dragon. As new episodes drop every week, stellar reviews from both fans and critics keep pouring in. The audience is not just invested in following the journey of the lead stars, Pedro Pascal as smuggler Joel and Bella Ramsey as youngster Ellie, in a post-apocalyptic America, but also the narratives of the side characters.

Speaking with The Direct, Jeffrey Pierce, who played Perry in the HBO series and Tommy in the games, revealed his belief that HBO will plan to develop a Season 3 to properly adapt The Last of Us Part II. “Yeah, I can’t wait to see what they do with it. I think they’ll stretch it beyond a second season because there’s just so much story to tell in the second game.,” he said.

Pierce also shared certain parts from the video game that he cannot wait to be translated on screen. “ I’m looking forward to Tommy coming over to see Ellie after Joel’s death. That scene… playing that with Ashley was magical. Yeah, and then the scene at the farm, all that I love– I love so much of what I got to do as Tommy. And… these are like meaty moments when it comes to the farmhouse at the end with Dina, and Ashley, and talks about chasing Abby down.” he teased.

With the welcoming reactions that The Last of Us is receiving, fans hope that this TV drama will not lose its ability for good and compelling storytelling and that the upcoming seasons will be worth the wait.

The Last of Us episode 7 drops this Sunday on HBO at 9 p.m. ET/PT on February 26; it will be released on HBO Max that same day at 9 p.m. ET.
