This isn’t official yet, although I think most of us that attended The Madalorian panel at Celebration figured it will be in due time, but according to Discussing Film, the first Disney+ live-action Star Wars series has already been green lit for a second season.
Apparently, Disney is so pleased with Jon Favreau’s work for their studios — he is the Jungle Book and Lion King guy after all — that the studio has approved Mandalorian for a second season with him remaining as the lead. Apparently, Dave Filoni will also be back in some capacity, either has co-showrunner, or a creative lead with possible additional director duties.
The rumored second season of The Madalorian will begin production during the Summer of 2020, and it will hit Disney+ during the Fall of 2021. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
The Mandalorian, created by Jon Favreau stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog and Nick Nolte. It debuts on Disney+ on November 12th.
