What To Expect From the Future of the Star Wars Universe and When to Expect It
October 2020: The Mandalorian, Season 2
Disney was so confident in the IP that production on Season 2 of the hit series, The Mandalorian, began in October of 2019, nearly a full month before the debut of Season 1. Jon Favreau (The Jungle Book, Lion King) returns as the showrunner for the new season which will debut in late 2020.
In March of 2020, Murphy’s Multiverse reported on some rumors that Peyton Reed (Ant-Man) would be directing 2 episodes and that Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok), who directed the finale of season one, would be returning to work on the show in some capacity.
The first season featured five different directors and that seems to be a trend that’ll continue through season 2. Bryce Dallas Howard will be returning behind the cameras and, besides the aforementioned MCU alumni, she’ll also be joined by Robert Rodriguez (Sin City, Alita: Battle Angel), and The Mandalorian’s own Jon Favreau and Carl Weathers.
It was announced on September 2nd that season two will debut on October 30th, on Disney+
