The show’s third episode is centered on their touching relationship, and we’d absolutely love to see more of Bill and Frank’s story if given the chance. <3 Speaking of which, Offerman recently talked about a potential spin-off on his and Bartlett’s characters, revealing:


“I think we pitched like a whole mini-series of a prequel of their lives before they meet each other.”

He further told the press,

“It could be a musical. We’re not short on ideas. We’ll see what [show creators Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann] come up with.”


On Saturday, the 53-year-old American actor and comedian won the award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series at the 75th annual Creative Arts Emmy Awards for portraying the character of Bill in ‘The Last of Us’.

Offerman delivered a moving acceptance speech where he gave credit to all the people behind the show, as well as his on-screen love interest Bartlett, expressing:

“It’s hard to fully swallow because the role was in an inseparable partnership with the magnificent #MurrayBartlett so I wish they had 2 trophies to give. Without Frank, Bill ain’t sh*t.”


Moreover, ‘The Last of Us’ is available for streaming on Max.
