Disney has officially renewed The Mandalorian for a second season.
The live-action Star Wars series is the flagship title for Disney’s new subscription streaming platform, Disney+, which launched in the US on 12th November and comes to the UK on 31st March 2020. It is set after the fall of the Empire in Episode VI. After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, it follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) plays the eponymous bounty hunter on a mission to collect a particularly difficult prize. The cast also includes Werner Herzog, Nick Nolte and Gina Carano, as well as Carl Weathers and Giancarlo Esposito.
Season 2 debuted its finale on Disney+ today and, within hours of its arrival, showrunner and creator Jon Favreau confirmed that Season 2 was officially on the way, with a release date of autumn 2020.
Filming has already been teased on Season 2 by Favreau, but this is the first time that the sophomore run has been officially announced. Favreau did so on social media with a picture of a Gamorrean, a pig-lizard species that fans will recognise from Jabba the Hut’s palace in Return of the Jedi, which suggests that we’ll either find out more about their home planet or even head to Tatooine for some Jabba-related action. Until then, you can head this way for the trailer for Season 1.
