Jon Favreau confirms the second season will come out next year.

18 Comments

Season 2 of The Mandalorian will premiere in Fall 2020, producer Jon Favreau has confirmed. The Star Wars TV show's first series premiered in November with the launch of Disney+.

Deadline reports that "several established characters" from the Skywalker Saga series of movies may appear in The Mandalorian Season 2. However, no specifics have been confirmed yet.

The Mandalorian Season 1 stars Game of Thrones and Narcos actor Pedro Pascal, with a cast that also includes Gina Carano, Giancarlo Espositio, Werner Herzog, and Nick Nolte, among others.

The Mandalorian is the first Star Wars live-action TV show. Favreau created and was the executive producer on the show. Some of his past work has included Elf and Iron Man.

Episode 8, Redemption, was directed by Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi--it premiered on December 27. It was the final episode in Season 1, and Favreau confirmed Season 2 not long after the chapter debuted on Disney's streaming service.

Disclosure: ViacomCBS is GameSpot's parent company

Favreau has been pretty good with what he's been working on. I doubt he'll do anything stupid (though I don't know how much control Disney has to push things into this show).

Maybe a few lesser known characters (that you wouldn't think of). I doubt they'll throw big characters in... at least not for long (or for Easter eggs?).

If Disney wasn’t, you know, under the impression the frequency of Star Wars movies was the problem instead of the movies themselves, we might actually have something to tide us over until then.

I found the series started well but quickly went downhill. Too much filler for such short episodes and series length.
I loved the initial feel and tone of it. Reminded me of peak Firefly mixed with Rogue One. But, my original point stands. If they make the episodes at least 45 minutes long as well as up the series to ten episodes they can redeem it. And for the love of all things holy don't add the crap characters from the Soywalker trilogy. People think we'd get Poe Dameron, with Kennedy in charge it'll be Rose Tico and she'd become the main star.

@eisenhorn: I thought the "filler" was the best part. The self contained stories set in the Star Wars universe, where they could do something new every week.

This was overall a really good show but I found the last episode rather weak and felt it had a lot of elements that now have me worried about the show going forward, ranging from silly plot devices to bad logic and weak writing.

Example: Telling us in a long, drawn out way with loads of exposition how powerful the E-Web gun was and then when we finally saw it fire it was no more powerful than the one the chick was firing. After all that build up I genuinely expected it to tear through the building and leave it a pile of rubble. And the shots should have looked and sounded more like the ones that come out of something like TIE Fighter or AT-AT or something like that in my opinion too.

And that's just one example.

PS. I've just realized that TIE fighters are probably called that because they look like bow ties! :-o

I doubt any of the new characters will be in this, maybe Poe but that's it. Rey or Finn would either be way too young or not even born yet.

Having said that, it would be cool to see Ahsoka or Sabine Wren show up, particularly Sabine after the Episode 8 reveal of the Darksaber.

@edwardnygma: Wouldnt they be too young? Well, maybe Rey can just time travel since she's now the force.

@RogerioFM: I am sure they can give Rey another Mary Sue power to accommodate.

Skywalker Saga characters? Disney, don't screw this up, it's the only decent thing you've done recently with Star Wars.

@chaosbrigade: Solo was pretty entertaining too. It's really just the numbered sequels that have been butt.

@mogan: I didn't hate it, but for a Star Wars film, it should had been better. For what it was it was a disservice to Han Solo's lore.
