The Mandalorian Season 3 Will Start Filming Soon

One of its stars shared the news, meaning The Book of Boba Fett has wrapped filming.


Actor Giancarlo Esposito (The Mandalorian, Breaking Bad) has shared with local news outlets in Raleigh, North Carolina during GalaxyCon Raleigh that Season 3 of The Mandalorian will begin shooting soon. WRAL spoke briefly with Esposito who was otherwise tight-lipped on details.

"They finished shooting Boba Fett and soon they will start on Season 3 [of The Mandalorian]," said Esposito. Acknowledging that Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal is currently in Canada filming the HBO show The Last of Us, Esposito added that because Pascal's character is always wearing a helmet, "We never have to wait on Pedro."

But with The Mandalorian removing his helmet at the end of Season 2, many fans have speculated we'll be seeing more of Pascal's face. Esposito said that he "can't speak to that… I know he'd love to be more off the helmet, but his job is to be in the helmet. That's the deal." Aside from that, Esposito confirmed that we'd be seeing more of his character Moff Gideon--though, again, was not forthcoming with plot information.

The Book of Boba Fett is expected to premiere on Disney+ this December. As its name suggests, the spin-off will focus heavily on the infamous bounty hunter. But, once again, we don't know much about what the show exactly will be--but we may find out soon. Star Ming-Na Wen tweeted that production wrapped in early June, so it shouldn't be long before we start seeing more from it.
