The Mandalorian Season 2 confirmed for October
It was thought that perhaps the widespread shutdown of film and television productions in the United States due to the coronavirus pandemic might have affected the series’ return. Not so, says Jon Favreau, who confirmed that the second season would return on time.
"We were lucky enough to have finished photography before the lockdown," said Favreau, during a virtual panel at the ATX Television Festival.
“Thanks to how technology-forward Lucasfilm and ILM are, we have been able to do all of our visual effects and editing and post-production remotely through systems that had been set up by those companies for us."
While the exact date has not be confirmed, Season 1 arrived on Disney+ early November. So that would lead us to believe a late October reveal of season two makes the most sense.
According to Favreau the new season will feature new characters and new directors.
"As we explore partnering with new filmmakers and having new characters and going deeper with the characters we already have, it's really been very fun and fulfilling and I hope people are having as much fun seeing it as we are having making it," said Favreau.
