After season 2 was confirmed by show-runner Jon Favreau late last year, Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company Bob Iger has just confirmed all-new episodes of The Mandalorian will release this October exclusively on Disney+.
Iger confirmed the news via an earnings call on Tuesday evening. In addition to announcing The Mandalorian‘s return date, Iger also hinted that potential spin-offs are in the works citing, “the possibility of infusing it with more characters and taking those characters in their own direction in terms of series.” This will also be added to what Disney+ already has in store such as a Rogue One prequel starring Cassian Andor (played by Diego Luna) and a new series about Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi.
So far an exact date for the The Mandalorian‘s return has yet to be shared, but keep it locked here for more details when they arise. The second season arrives a month earlier, seeing as the The Mandalorian premiered on November 12, 2019.
In more entertainment news, these are the best Super Bowl LIV commercials.
