Mandalorian season 3 already in the works
Daddy Mando will return for a third season.
Disney has already started work on the third season of its original show, The Mandalorian.
Last week, it was reported that the second season would release on Disney+ in October of this year, but it now appears like a third season is also on the way.
Variety reported that sources close to him have claimed that Jon Faverau “has been writing season 3 for a while” and that the art department has been creating concept art “for a few weeks”.
Another source has said that pre-production started officially on April 20, just over a month after production wrapped on season 2.
The Mandalorian managed to finish its production before the strict measures surrounding COVID-19 were introduced, meaning it did not have to be halted.
Season 1 ended with the main character and Baby Yoda leaving to try and find its home planet, though there has been no word as to what season 2 will revolve around.
Despite this, some casting news has recently leaked, suggesting that Rosario Dawson will star in season 2 as Anakin Skywalker’s apprentice Ahsoka Tano, a popular character from the Clone Wars animated series.
Disney has other Star Wars shows planned to hit its new streaming service, including an Obi Wan series starring Ewan Mcgregor, though it is not known whether the global lockdown has caused these to be delayed.
You can watch season 1 of The Mandalorian on Disney+ now.
