This article contains spoilers for chapter 8 of ‘The Last of Us’.
In the eighth chapter of ‘The Last of Us’, Ellie (Bella Ramsey) is involved in a plot related to a town that barely survives. A very important aspect of this village is its strong Christian faith, instilled mainly by the leader and pastor David (Scott Shepherd).
I do think there is an anti-Christian bias in Hollywood. As soon as the David character in “The Last of Us”
started reading from the Bible I knew that he was going to be a horrific villain. Could there be a Bible-reading preacher on a show who is actually loving and kind?

After the controversy that the previous tweet aroused, Wilson, who specifies that he is not a Christian, Has published another series of tweets to clarify his position: “Of course it is true that the evangelical/political coalition is doing a lot of damage to our country. Banning books, banning liberties, denying inconvenient science, taking a grotesque anti-LGBTQ+ stance… But most of the Christians I know are kind, accepting and loving and seek to make the world a better place. They should also be honored in the media.”
Controversies aside, ‘The Last of Us’, an adaptation of the popular video game of the same name, has received great support, both from professional critics and from the public. This was reflected in the renewal for a second season before even the end of the broadcast of the first. At the moment, only one more installment has been signed, but the creators confirmed that to adapt the second video game (remember that the first season covers the entire first game) it will take more than one season.
The second installment, which still does not have a release date, it could start shooting this year as revealed by Pedro Pascal at the end of February.
The first season of ‘The Last of Us’ is Available on HBO Max.
