The Mandalorian season 2 is officially confirmed to premiere in fall 2020.
On Twitter, Favreau revealed Season 2 is set to premiere sometime in fall 2020, providing the release window alongside the figure of what appears to be a Gamorrean, the pig-like species that provided security for Jabba the Hutt.
News of Disney ordering a second season of The Mandalorian first broke in May, with Favreau expected to reprise his role as showrunner. He later confirmed he would be directing an episode of Season 2 himself, and recently revealed that principal photography began in November, with active development beginning as early as July.
What’ll be more fascinating is who’s recruited to direct episodes of The Mandalorian season 2. Season 1 featured talents like Deborah Chow, Rick Famuyiwa, and Taika Waititi calling the shots, all of whom earned widespread acclaim for their work. But there will probably be some new names in the mix for season 2. Waititi is busy working on Next Goal Wins before he turns his attention to Thor: Love and Thunder, and Chow is going to oversee the aforementioned Obi-Wan show. Already, it’s been revealed co-star Carl Weathers helmed an episode, and Favreau is planning on directing one himself , after sitting out season 1 due to The Lion King. Hopefully Lucasfilm found another crop of excellent filmmakers, and The Mandalorian continues to be a hit next year.
Created by Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog and Nick Nolte. The entire first season is available to stream on Disney+.
