Disney obviously strongly believes in the success of Andor, the Star Wars series centered on the famous rebel. While fans are still waiting to discover the first season, the big-eared firm has confirmed the start of a second season.
As you may know, Disney intends to water Disney + subscribers with many exclusive Star Wars series. The calendar is already full. After kicking off the cycle with the first two seasons of The Mandalorian and Star Wars Bad Batch, users are set to watch the final episode of The Book of Boba Fett this week, the spin-off centered on the notorious bounty hunter. .
Next step for Star Wars fans: Ahsoka, the show dedicated to the Jedi embodied by Rosario Dawnson, then Obi-Wan of course, which will mark the return of Ewan McGregor in the role of the Jedi master. Let’s not forget, however, that other series, perhaps less expected by the general public, will also make their debut on the platform.
Andor: a season 2 already ordered by Disney
This is particularly the case ofAndor. This series will focus on Cassian Andora renowned rebel that you could see in the excellent Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Next to Jin Erso, he fought to his last breath to transfer the Dark Star plans to the Resistance. As you will have understood, the show will therefore be a prequel to Rogue One, and will therefore mark the occasion to review certain characters such as Saw Guerrerastill played by Forest Whitaker.
Unsurprisingly, Diego Luna will reprise the role of Cassian Andor. For the moment, we do not have a precise broadcast date, except for a vague 2022. If the fans are still waiting to discover the first season, Disney is visibly certain of the success of the show since the Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård (Thor, Dune, Chernobyl), who plays a character from the series, confirmed that a season 2 was already in the cards.
“I start with Dune 2 in July 2022. Then, in the fall, it will be the turn of the second season of the Star Wars series: Andor”. explained the comedian in an interview for the Swedish site Dagens Nyheter. The artist also specifies in the interview that Genevieve O’Reilly was chosen to play My Mothma, one of the emblematic leaders of the Rebel Alliance. Rogue One screenwriter Tony Gilroy is in charge of directing and writing several episodes, including the pilot.
