The Spark that Lit the Flame
Rickie Yagawa, a talented artist, shared an evocative piece of artwork inspired by “Good Omens” on her Instagram. Among the thousands who double-tapped in admiration was none other than “The Mandalorian” and “The Last Of Us” star, Pedro Pascal. His seemingly innocuous like on this artwork set the fandom abuzz with hopes and theories.
The ripple effect was evident on Twitter where fans and series enthusiasts shared their excitement. A range of tweets – from unexpected bingo cards to doctored images portraying Pascal as the Messiah – dominated the conversation. One tweet humorously stated they needed “Pedro Pascal biblically,” implying a passionate desire to see him play Jesus in “Good Omens” season 3.
A Divine Fit for Season 3?
Speculation over Pascal joining the “Good Omens” family isn’t just rooted in wishful thinking. Fans believe that Pascal’s diverse acting prowess, from his intense roles to his comedic stints on “Saturday Night Live” and films like “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent”, make him an ideal candidate to take on the divine role.

Considering the series creator, Neil Gaiman, has mentioned that season 3 will delve into the Second Coming based on ideas from the original book sequel, the casting of Jesus becomes paramount. An adult, like Pascal, who discovers his celestial lineage thanks to Michael Sheen’s Aziraphale, might bring the perfect mix of humor and drama to the fore.
A Celestial Dream or Earthly Reality?
As perfect as the fan-theory sounds, there’s a pragmatic side to consider. Pascal’s skyrocketing demand in the entertainment world, with commitments like “The Mandalorian” season 4, “The Last of Us” season 2, Ridley Scott’s “Gladiator 2”, and a rumored role in the “Minecraft” movie, means that fitting “Good Omens” into his packed schedule might be a Herculean task.
While the future remains uncertain, one thing’s for sure – Pedro Pascal’s mere association, even if just via a social media like, with “Good Omens” has energized a community. Whether he graces the series with his divine presence or not, this buzz serves as a testament to his enormous appeal and the magnetic pull of the “Good Omens” series.
Only time will reveal if fans’ dreams come true, but for now, they can relish in the delightful chaos that one click has brought to the world of “Good Omens”. As anticipation for season 3 builds, the hope remains that the universe (or perhaps just the casting directors) align to bring this match made in heaven to life.
