The Mandalorian Season 2 was underway even before every episode of the series’ Season 1 aired on Disney Plus. On November 13, “Chapter 1: The Mandalorian,” premiered and Jon Favreau posted about Season 2. But how much do we know about the Mandalorian?
Let’s find out!
The Mandalorian Season 2 Release Date
The exact date isn’t announced yet for The Mandalorian Season 2‘s streaming. However, Favreau shared that new episodes will premiere in Fall 2020.
The Mandalorian Season 2 Plot
There’s nothing official about the plot of The Mandalorian Season 2. The final episode of Season 1, “Chapter 8: Redemption,” sets out the path forward. During the episode, the Mandalorian Din Djarin has the last meet with the Armorer (Emily Swallow). She makes it explicit what honor demands of the Mandalorian, explaining Din Djarin and Baby Yoda as of the same clan.
The Mandalorian Season 2 will continue Din Djarin’s search for Baby Yoda’s homeworld: a mystery as old as Yoda himself.
“I never figured where he came from,” Star Wars creator George Lucas said, in an interview timed to the release of 2005’s Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Maybe it’s somewhere, but I don’t know what it is.”
While The Mandalorian Season 2 will continue the hunt, there’s no guarantee the episodes premiering in 2020 will have a final answer for us.
The Mandalorian Season 2 Cast
No returning characters are confirmed for The Mandalorian Season 2. With Mandalorian finding Baby Yoda’s homeworld, it’s assured that the tiny Force wielder will come back. Other characters who survived Season 1 and will make a Season 2 appearance. Carl Weathers as Bounty Hunters’ Guild agent Greef Karga, who’s returning for next episodes.
Gina Carano, as former Rebel Alliance shock trooper Cara Dune will return this season. And considering Season 1 of The Mandalorian ends on series villain Moff Gideon, it’s safe to say that Giancarlo Esposito will also return for Season 2.
Also, The Mandalorian Season 2 is likely to tie itself into the wider Star Wars mythos by showcasing known characters. According to Deadline, “several established characters from the Skywalker saga’s feature films mythology” will be appearing in Season 2.
The Mandalorian Season 2 Episodes
Season 1 of The Mandalorian having eight episodes and might plan to continue with the same format. Favreau has shared that Weathers will be taking on behind-the-camera duties in The Mandalorian Season 2, directing at least 1 episode. Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has expressed interest in The Mandalorian, though his involvement isn’t official yet.
With Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in theatres and The Mandalorian Season 1 complete, there are many announcements to come. We may not know much about The Mandalorian Season 2 now, but expect that to change.
