“The Mandalorian” hasn’t returned for season 2 just yet but pre-production on a third season has reportedly already started.
According to Variety, showrunner Jon Favreau has already started work on season 3 after the show wrapped up production on season 2 back in March. “The Mandalorian” got lucky that filming for the show was just wrapping up as studios across the globe shut down due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
As of now, “The Mandalorian” season 2 is expected to land on Disney+ in October.
“We’ve just started pre-production and are looking into further adventures for the Mandalorian in Season 3,” a source told Variety on Tuesday.
The first live action “Star Wars” spinoff, “The Mandalorian” has received rave reviews since first debuting on Disney+ with the streaming service already signing up 50 million subscribers. The first season came to a conclusion with a standoff between Mando and the remnants of the Galactic Empire led by Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito). Mando spent the better part of the entire season protecting an “asset,” which was a baby from the same species as Yoda with similar Force sensitivity. “The Mandalorian” ended with Mando determined to find the child’s home planet in order to keep him safe and escape the people coming after him.
Not much is known about “The Mandalorian” season 2, although Moff Gideon is expected to serve as a major obstacle in Mando’s way as he seeks to protect the child. At the end of the first season it was revealed that Moff Gideon possessed the Darksaber — a rare black bladed lightsaber.
There have also been reports that Rosario Dawson would be joining “The Mandalorian” season 2 as Ahsoka Tano — a character made popular in the “Star Wars: Clone Wars” animated series — who is a former apprentice of Anakin Skywalker.
Two more “Star Wars” spinoffs are also in the works at Disney+ including Ewan McGregor reprising his role for a “Obi-Wan Kenobi” limited series as well as Diego Luna returning as his character from “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” for a separate series.
