HBO’s The Last of Us series is currently filming, offering fans a look at the highly anticipated adaptation. In fact, a new image from the set has offered the first look at Pedro Pascal as Joel.
As fans can see in the image below, Pascal looks just like the character. It is difficult to say where this scene is from in the story, so fans will have to speculate for now.

As production on the series continues, hopefully, photos of the rest of the cast begin to surface. The series also stars Bella Ramsey as Ellie and Gabriel Luna as Tommy.
Putting the adaptation together for HBO is the creator of Chernobyl, Craig Mazin. He will co-write alongside the game’s director, Neil Druckmann. When asked about Druckmann, Mazin had nothing kind words to say about his collaborator. “Neil Druckmann is without question the finest storyteller working in the video game medium, and The Last of Us is his magnum opus,” he explained. “Getting a chance to adapt this breathtaking work of art has been a dream of mine for years, and I’m so honored to do it in partnership with Neil.”
