The Mandalorian Schedule: When Will Season 2 Air On Disney Plus?
Here's when you can reunite with your beloved Baby Yoda.
All eight episodes of the first season of The Mandalorian are now available on Disney+. You can binge them all right now if you're a subscriber, from the shaky first episode all the way through to Taika Waititi's excellent season finale. [Update: We might be done with Season 1, but Disney had already confirmed plans to release another season before the show ever debuted. Now, we know roughly when to expect it. The Mandalorian Season 2 is set to release in Fall 2020--specifically this October, according to a recent earnings report. Details are scant and we don't know the exact day it will debut on the Disney+ streaming platform, but a report suggests that characters from the Skywalker Saga could be featured.]

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 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.
