“The Mandalorian” dropped its first season finale Friday and just a few hours later, series creator Jon Favreau dropped some big news for fans of Disney+’s live-action “Star Wars” series: The second season will premiere in Fall 2020.
“Season 2 of #TheMandalorian coming Fall 2020,” Favreau tweeted, revealing that it’s gonna be a while until you get to see Baby Yoda again. The tweet also included a picture of a Gamorrean figurine, a species from within the “Star Wars” universe that was not featured in the first season of “The Mandalorian,” so maybe he’s teasing a Season 2 character here.
Season 1 of the Pedro Pascal-led series premiered with the launch of Disney’s new streaming service Disney+ on Nov. 12. It consisted of eight episodes, which rolled out weekly on Fridays, with the exception of Episode 1, which dropped on a Tuesday (the day Disney+ launched) and Episode 7, which was released on Wednesday, Dec. 18.
Favreau has openly talked about “The Mandalorian” Season 2 being a sure thing multiple times, saying in July he was already writing the next batch of episodes, telling Entertainment Weekly in September that he wants to direct a Season 2 episode and revealing Nov. 13 he was back on set.
Though Disney+ has been quiet on the Season 2 front until now, representatives for the streaming service confirmed to TheWrap Friday both the renewal and premiere date are accurate.
