Premiere: TBD 2023
Following the massive success of the first two seasons, from which two spin-off series (Ahsoka and Rangers of the New Republic) initially emerged, season three of the hit Disney+ show was confirmed and is set to be released in late 2022/early 2023. Pedro Pascal, Giancarlo Esposito are both likely to be returning and given how Chapter 16 ended even Katee Sackhoff might reprise the role of Bo-Katan Kryze.
It was reported that production began in September 2021, possibly hinting at a late 2022 release. Carl Weathers announced he was to return for season 3, with October 13 being his first day on set. The show would begin shooting without leading man Pedro Pascal, as in mid-October he was still being spotted on The Last of Us‘ set.
While there might still be a possibility that the season might debut in late 2022, it is becoming increasingly likely that Din Djarin and Grogu will only make their return in early 2023. This was later confirmed at Star Wars Celebration 2022.
A number of announcements regarding the show were made at Star Wars Celebration 2022. From the return of Katee Sackhoff‘s Bo-Katan and Episode IX’s Babu Frik, to director Rick Famuyiwa now being an executive producer on the series, and Bryce Dallas Howard returning to the director’s chair following her work on two episodes from the previous two seasons as well as a stint on The Book of Boba Fett.
It was also confirmed that Jon Favreau was already working on the scripts for the fourth season of the series.
Besides being listed as an executive producer on the show, director Rick Famuyiwa is set to direct a couple of episodes of season 3, as confirmed by star Carl Weathers in July 2020. Famuyiwa already directed Chapters 2 (‘The Child’), 6 (‘The Prisoner’), and 15 (‘The Believer’).
