The second season of Disney’s live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian will return on October 30, reports the AVClub. Production of the show’s new season successfully wrapped up in March just before the COVID-19 pandemic broke out. Post-production then resumed with people working remotely from home.
As we reported in the past, The Mandalorian’s second season will be full of guest stars. Among them are Timothy Olyphant (Justified), Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), Temuera Morrison (Aquaman), Michael Biehn (The Terminator), and Rosario Dawson as fan-favorite character Ahsoka Tano. Rick Famuyiwa, Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Bryce Dallas Howard will all return to direct episodes of season 2. New directors will include Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) and Peyton Reed (Ant-Man) as well as Carl Weathers, who plays Greef Karga, the chief of the bounty hunter guild in the show.
So far, details about the plot of season 2 are scarce. Presumably, The Mandalorian will still be a strong, silent type chased by Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) and his post-Imperial Stormtroopers. What role will Ahsoka Tano have in the story? Will Temuera Morrison play Boba Fett? Do we even care as long as we get a new dose of Baby Yoda to brighten up this terrible, terrible year? We shall have to wait and see!
