‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2 Confirmed by Jon Favreau

The Mandalorian” will officially be coming back to Disney Plus for a second season.

Showrunner and creator Jon Favreau confirmed the renewal via Twitter, saying that the second installment is slated to debut in Fall 2020.

Favreau had previously teased that shooting on season 2 was already underway, and had also revealed that Carl Weathers, who plays Greef Carga in the series, is set to direct an episode. The figurine in Favreau’s Tweet is a Gamorrean, a pig-lizard species which guarded Jabba the Hut in earlier “Star Wars” films, hinting that season 2 might explore their native planet of Gamorr, or perhaps even venture into Jabba’s palace on Tatooine.

The news comes only hours after the season 1 finale dropped on Disney Plus. “The Mandalorian” stars Pedro Pascal as the titular bounty hunter, Gina Carano as the fearsome Cara Dune, and Carl Weathers as the shifty Greef Carga. However, the show so far has been stolen by Baby Yoda, which has caused an online sensation.

The series is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order, following the travails of Mando in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.

It marks the first “Star Wars” series to air on Disney Plus, and the Mouse House also has two others series from a Galaxy far, far away in the works, namely a Cassian Andor series starring Diego Luna reprising his role from “Rogue One,” and an Obi-Wan Kenobi series with Ewan McGregor reprising the iconic role.

The series is executive produced by Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist serves as co-executive producer. Directors on season 1 included Filoni, Taika Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, and Deborah Chow, who has been tapped to direct the Obi-Wan series as well.
