Disney+’s The Mandalorian garnered huge commercial and critical success with its first season. It got 15 Emmy awards nominations, including Outstanding Drama, Outstanding Guest Actor, and of course, Outstanding Visual Effects. The network was quick to confirm a second season for the series and it turns out we will not have too long of a wait.
Disney announced on Twitter that the second season will premier on October 30, 2020. The tweet included a new logo for the show, showing the Child aka Baby Yoda walking alongside Pedro Pascal’s Mando within the show’s title with a blue-hued color scheme. A trailer for the new season, however, is still to be released.
It is still unclear whether the release pace of the episodes will be similar to the first season’s. In the first season, the first two episodes were released in a three-day interval, and the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premiere came right before the final episode. Now, there is no other big outing in the Star Wars universe to affect the schedule.
The channel is due to stream several other Star Wars projects in the coming years. One of them is a show centered around Rogue One’s Cassian Andor and another show about Obi-Wan Kenobi—with Ewan McGregor reprising his role from the prequel trilogy. The Kenobi series’ production schedule was pushed back, however, after it had undergone some rewrites.
