Earlier this winter, Disney announced plans for a live-action Star Wars series starring Diego Luna as Cassian Andor. According to new reports circling the web, the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story spinoff series will begin production in October 2019 with an aim for a 2020 release.

The show is described as a “rousing spy thriller [that] will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire.” It will also feature Diego Luna reprising his role as Cassian and will become the second live-action series from the Star Wars franchise to hit the Disney+ streaming service, joining The Mandalorian. Stephen Schiff will serve as showrunner.

“Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me,” Cassian Andor actor Diego Luna shared in a statement when the series was announced. “I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey. We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply.”
