The first season of Andor has yet to finish airing on Disney+, but series creator Tony Gilroy is already looking ahead. Production on Season 2 of the Star Wars series is expected to begin relatively soon, and it looks like the series is set to get some new creatives behind the camera for the forthcoming season. Gilroy exclusively revealed to the folks at Collider that Ariel Kleiman, Janus Metz, and Alonso Ruizpalacios will direct episode blocks of Andor for the show’s second season. They’ll take over for Toby Haynes, Susanna White and Benjamin Caron who directed episode blocks of the show’s first season.
Kleiman, while still relatively new to Hollywood, has been building a rather impressive resume over the years. His first title was the film, Partisan, and he has recently been focusing on the small screen with shows like Top of the Lake and Yellowjackets. As for Metz, like Kleiman, despite working in the industry for a long time, he’s still relatively new to Hollywood. He’s directed multiple documentaries and most recently helmed a television mini-series called ZeroZeroZero. Ruizpalacios has been steadily working as a writer and director, having directed episodes of Narcos: Mexico and Outer Range.
Andor is currently airing on Disney+ with the first season expected to end its run on Nov. 23rd.
