16 Comments

Episodes 1-5 of The Mandalorian are now available on Disney+. You can binge them all right now in order to catch up for Episode 6 of the Star Wars show, which arrives this Friday, December 13. What's going to happen with the on-going adventures of Baby Yoda and Mando? Well, there's only a few episodes (or "chapters") left in Season 1, as it comes to a close with Episode 8 on December 27. But with The Rise of Skywalker coming soon, there will be one adjustment to The Mandalorian's release schedule soon.

The Mandalorian Season 1 Release Schedule

  • Episode 1: Tuesday, November 12
  • Episode 2: Friday, November 15
  • Episode 3: Friday, November 22
  • Episode 4: Friday, November 29
  • Episode 5: Friday, December 6
  • Episode 6: Friday, December 13
  • Episode 7: Wednesday, December 18
  • Episode 8 (season finale): Friday, December 27

Star Wars fans with fresh subscriptions to Disney's new streaming service cannot binge the new series all at once, as they might be accustomed to with many other original shows on streaming services. Instead, they'll have to wait a week between installments over the show's eight-episode run, digesting and discussing each episode in between drops. Disney has opted for a traditional weekly release structure over the Netflix-popularized "binge" model, whereby an entire season is dropped online at once. However, the wait between Episodes 1 and 2 is shorter than the wait will be for Episode 3 onward, and fans who like to watch fast and avoid spoilers will want to plan accordingly.

The weekly schedule will see new episodes each Friday, running through the series finale on December 27. The one exception is Episode 7, which will premiere on a Wednesday, likely to avoid launching on the same day as Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. Viewers of this episode will also be treated to a sneak peek of the upcoming movie.

The first four episodes of The Mandalorian were all written by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, The Lion King remake), and this second episode is directed by Rick Famuyiwa (Dope). Incidentally, Famuyiwa is the first person of color to direct a live-action installment of Star Wars; the third episode, directed by Deborah Chow (American Gods, Reign) will be the first live-action Star Wars directed by a woman. Other directors across the season include Bryce Dallas Howard, Dave Filoni, and Taika Waititi.

Disney+ is loaded with Star Wars content at launch, although some users have had trouble using it at all. We've also got some thoughts (including episode 1 spoilers) on how an important Star Wars figure might factor into the series.
