The Reason Why Pedro Pascal Probably Won’t Be Seen In The Mandalorian Again

Most of us will know Pedro Pascal from his incredible performance as Joel in The Last Of Us, but before that, he actually made a name for himself in the Star Wars spin off The Mandalorian…

And now, the actor has opened up about appearing (or not appearing) in season 3.

The Last Of Us has sadly come to an end, and while the finale was highly anticipated, some viewers were left feeling less than impressed with how the season wrapped up.

Dozens have commented on the lack of infected, and how they felt the episode was a slow burn rather than the grand conclusion they were expecting.

Now, ever since The Last Of Us first hit our screens, fans have been praising the show for everything from its writing to the world-class performances from its cast.

At the start of the year, audiences were first introduced to the HBO Max series, which is the first live-action adaptation since the video game wowed audiences way back in 2013.

Just like the games, the series is set in a post-apocalyptic world ruled by an unstoppable, brain-eating, fungal outbreak that transforms humans into cannibals. 

Per Deadline, the show’s first 2 episodes were viewed by over twenty million people, making it HBO’s fourth current show to average over fifteen million viewers, and the last episode had an astonishing series high of 8.2 million viewers.

It’s no wonder that they’ve already renewed it for a second season!

But luckily, while we wait for season 2, fans will still be able to get their Pedro Pascal fix, as he’s set to appear in the third season of Disney+’s hit series, The Mandalorian.

For those who haven’t watched it, The Mandalorian is centered around a space traveling bounty hunter named Din Djarin who, through a series of events, becomes the foster parent of Grogu, colloquially referred to as ‘Baby Yoda.’

As those who have watched the series will know, Pascal rarely shows his face in the show due to the vow his character took, in which he follows the Way of the Mandalore, meaning he can never remove his beskar helmet.

Talking about having to act in full armour, Pascal opened up to Empire last month, revealing: “It’s like putting on a head-to-toe glove with weights on it.

“It’s ironic that you can’t see any facial expression because it puts you in the world so completely, and instantly makes the character feel real – but you can’t see s**t!”

“They’ve continued to finesse and make it more comfortable, but it’s like going blind,” Pascal said.

“Your breath completely fogs up the narrow slit that you can see through. There’s no peripheral vision. If there’s a hole, I’m gonna fall into it.”

However, he added: “When it’s on, you immediately feel powerful, protected, dangerous, and like a protector.”

It seems that fans can’t wait to see him perform once again as the rough and ready bounty hunter, with one social media user writing: “Because maybe *spoilers.* Now that he has bathed in the living waters of Mandalore he will no longer remove his helmet. He would only be required for his voice. This is the way!”

While another said: “It’s absolutely set up for him to break the code and sacrifice it all for something, he broke it previously just to have a chat with Grogu.”

At least we get to hear his voice, right?
