Star Wars Celebration is still ongoing and it looks like Jon Favreau may have confirmed that while we’re months away from The Mandalorian‘s Season 3 to release, they’re already started work on a fourth season. In an interview with CinemaBlend, he talked about where they currently are with working on these series as Dave Filoni has moved on to focus on the Ahsoka series. While discussing it, he gave away that he’s already started writing on Season 4 of the Disney+ series.
With television, we’re very lucky that we don’t have to rush things through into an hour-and-a-half, two hours. We get to tell stories slowly. So now, as Dave [Filoni]’s doing Ahsoka, it’s very much informing the writing that I’m doing for [The Mandalorian] Season 4. It becomes – how should I put it – more precise.Jon Favreau
It’s surprising that he may have already started work on it, but we did hear that Favreau has a tendency to write these projects even before getting a confirmation. The initial pitch for the series he started working on before he even got the green light to work on it. So, he may have just put down some ideas and wants to make sure he doesn’t lose them.
It’s great to know that the series continues as it’s the only series on Disney+ that’s been running for multiple seasons like this. Marvel Studios generally goes for ongoing mini-series with the exception of Loki. So, it’s nice to have a project that continues to be a staple for the streaming service.
