Disney Plus has us waiting for The Mandalorian Season 3. With production rumored to begin in September 2021, it’s unlikely we’ll see the further adventures of Din Jarin (and perhaps Grogu…) until the end of 2022.

While we have December’s The Book of Boba Fett — and maybe the Obi-Wan Kenobi and Endor TV shows — to watch in the meantime, it almost seems cruel that we’ll have to wait so long to see what Mando’s story is in it. How does the galaxy move far, far away.

Will we see more of Bo-Katan’s mission to restore Mandalore? Will the Renaissance Empire remain a thorn in the side of the New Republic? And how the Mandalorian’s cloning sub-plot will tie into The Bad Batch and The Rise of Skywalker.


When it comes to plot, Lucasfilm is playing its cards as close to its chest as ever. But that hasn’t stopped us from pulling together all the important information about the eagerly awaited The Mandalorian Season 3. This is the way.

Is season 3 happening? Yes. The show was reportedly renewed prior to the release of The Mandalorian Season 2, but The Mandalorian’s future was confirmed by producer Jon Favreau in December 2020.

release date: The Mandalorian Season 3 is expected to launch in 2022, but the exact time is unknown. What’s officially revealed is that it was planned to go into production right after “The Book of Boba Fett” – but that was changing. In August 2021, Carl Weathers (Greef Karaga) stated that filming was scheduled to begin in September. This means that at the end of 2022 we will see the return of the show.

mold: Pascal will return as Din Gerrin, the titular Mandalorian, but other cast members are yet to be confirmed. Giancarlo Esposito has hinted that his character, Moff Gideon, may return in the future, but Gina Carano will not return as Cara Dunne.

Story: The fate of the Darksaber weapon, and whether Grogu will return to Din after being trained by Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), are the plot threads we hope to pick up on in The Mandalorian Season 3.

The Mandalorian season 3 release date

When The Book of Boba Fett was announced at the end of The Mandalorian Season 2 finale, Grogu fans were concerned that the new show was replacing The Mandalorian’s third season. But that’s certainly not the case: Favreau has confirmed that The Mandalorian Season 3 will continue the story of Din Jareen.

“What didn’t we say [the Disney Investor Day announcement about upcoming Star Wars TV] Next show is coming – [Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy] said in the next chapter — that’s going to be The Book of Boba Fett,” Favreau told Good Morning America in December 2020. Known and loved.

The Mandalorian Season 3 will release in 2022 at the earliest, with The Book of Boba Fett arriving in December 2021. But when, in fact, sounds more complicated.

A production listing for The Mandalorian Season 3 by the Film and Television Industry Alliance says that filming was scheduled to begin on April 5, 2021. However, this did not happen. And Collider reported in June 2021 that season 3 isn’t scheduled to film until late 2021 or early 2022—a late 2022 release date is planned. The Obi-Wan Kenobi series is reportedly taking the stage in LA where the show is currently being shot.

Still, that looks like that’s about to change in September 2021 — Carl Weathers, aka Greif Karaga, said at a Comic Con in August that The Mandalorian Season 3 is set to begin filming “within the next month” Was. This timescale is also hinted at by co-star Giancarlo Esposito (who plays Moff Gideon), who said in an interview at GalaxyCon Raleigh (via in July 2021 that, “He played Boba Fett. Completed the shooting and soon they will start on season 3”.

Given the typical time-frame for Mandalorian-sized productions, these comments both suggest a 2022 release date is on the Sabbath cards.

However, a factor likely to delay The Mandalorian Season 3 has been leading to Pedro Pascal’s commitment to HBO’s live-action series based on Naughty Dog’s critically acclaimed videogame The Last of Us, where he plays Joel Miller. acting in. Production on the new show began in early July, and Pascal’s contract with HBO means The Last of Us is in “first place”—in Hollywood speaking, this means it takes precedence over any other show. In which the actor could work, including The Mandalorian.

The Last of Us doesn’t mean the end of the world for Mando, though—especially since he’s not always the actor inside that famous helmet, as Season 1 director Bryce Dallas Howard told Vulture in 2019. Also, as Esposito pointed out. “We will never have to wait for Pedro”, at GalaxyCon Raleigh.

We will update this section once the official launch date is confirmed.

Spoilers for The Mandalorian Season 2 follow. Unless you want the chain to be ruined for you, don’t proceed.

Although there is no officially confirmed supporting cast for Season 3 yet, Pedro Pascal will return (at least for the time being) as Din Gerrin, aka The Mandalorian.

Other cast members returning next season are unclear — no surprise, as Lucasfilm enjoys keeping guest stars a secret until new episodes debut on Disney Plus — but the show now has a huge ensemble to choose from and choose from. .

We fully expect to see Katie Sackhoff’s bo-katan craze again—maybe Season 3 will dig further into her quest to restore Mandalore—while Carl Weyers (Greef Karaga) pops up at some point. Chances are.

Gina Carano, however, is not returning as former Rebel Shock Trooper Kara Dunne. We touched on this further below, so go ahead if you want to know.

Giancarlo Esposito is confident that he will appear again in Season 3 as the evil Imperial Moff Gideon. “I think you’ll see more of me next season. Most likely you’re going to see a lot of Moff Gideon,” the actor told Entertainment Weekly. With his life left by Mando in the Season 2 finale, the Imperial Bigwig clearly has a big part to play in the aftermath of the return of the Jedi universe. And besides, why give up on a perfectly good villain?

It is also possible that Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) and Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) will reunite after their starring roles in the upcoming The Book of Boba Fett, but this is not certain. The programs of that show will probably shed light on that.

“I don’t know, you’ll probably find out before I do,” Ming-na said when Digital Spy asked her about a possible appearance in The Mandalorian Season 3. “You guys have your thoughts on everything. I mean, come on, I didn’t even know I was shooting The Book of Boba Fett, so you’re asking the wrong person.

“We’re pretty secretive about everything, aren’t we?” she added. “We say show, not show. Contracts are always under different names. Shows are under different names. When I was told I was going to be a regular season, I automatically assumed it was The Mandalorian is for season 3. So for two weeks, when I was working with Tame [Temuera Morrison] and robert [Rodriguez, The Book of Boba Fett executive producer]’I didn’t know I was actually shooting the spin-off!”

Additionally, rumors have surfaced regarding the appearance of the Wookies. According to the Bespin Bulletin podcast, sources close to Season 3 production have suggested that a Wookiee will appear on the show. Naturally, there is no confirmation on whether this is true, so we are skeptical right now. If you’re interested in taking a look at the rumor itself, check out the Instagram post below:

What will happen to Grogu now in the care of Luke Skywalker?

We think there are two big plot threads from Season 2 that The Mandalorian Season 3 has to pay off. First, who will be driving the Darksaber? And, second, when will Grogu – also known as The Child/Baby Yoda – return to the care of Din Gerrin after his time training with Jedi Master Luke Skywalker?

At the end of Season 2, Mando won the Darksaber weapon – the Mandalorian blade highly coveted by Bo-Katan Kriz (Katie Sackhoff), from Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) – in his journey to reclaim the Mandalorian throne. However, he couldn’t just hand it over to Bo-Katan, and tensions escalated as it became clear that he and Mando would have to duel to claim the weapon. This plot thread should pick up again in The Mandalorian Season 3, as any other developments were spoiled by the sudden appearance of Luke Skywalker in the season finale.

“The way Lucasfilm left me in Season 2…” Sackhoff told Slashfilm, “One of those roads that could go down — absolutely, you’d think — would be unfinished business. [about Bo-Katan and the Mandalorians]. But that’s far above my pay grade, and you just don’t know, right? As a fan of the show, I am excited to see what they come up with.

On the subject of Luke, the other big plot point we expect to be raised in Season 3 is the fate of Grogu, the cast formerly known as Baby Yoda, with Luke to be trained in the ways of the Force. had gone. Skywalker said, “He is strong with force, but talent without training is nothing. I would give my life to protect the child… but he will not be safe until he masters his abilities.” doesn’t get it.”

Mando promises that he will see Grogu again, but when? We won’t be surprised to see that little green guy again…
