“The Mandalorian”: Lucasfilm unveils season 2 release date

Lucasfim and The Walt Disney Company has announced that hit series The Mandalorian will return to streaming service Disney+ on October 30.

Going by the previous season, the first episode will debut at the end of October, with the rest will following weekly on Fridays.

Lucasfilm is keeping the plot details of the second series closely under wraps, but a couple of casting announcements have been revealed. We know that Rosario Dawson will be bringing iconic Clone Wars character Ahsoka Tano to life in the character’s live-action debut.

Justified actor Timothy Olyphant has also been cast in an as yet undisclosed role. Rumours have circulated that the actor has been spotted filming scenes wearing Boba Fett’s Mandalorian armor!

Also previously announced, director Robert Rodriguez (Sin City and Spy Kids) and Peyton Reed (Ant-Man) revealed that they’ve both guest directed episodes of the series through two behind-the-scenes photos.

Check out the announcement below!

After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. “The Mandalorian” is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy, far from the authority of the New Republic.

The Mandalorian season two will debut exclusively on streaming service Disney+.
