Here’s everything we know about The Mandalorian season 2’s release date, cast, and more.
There’s so much information coming out about The Mandalorian season 2. But like anything from Star Wars, it’s also open to a lot of rumors and speculation that may or may not be true. Certainly, while Lucasfilm always likes to remain tight-lipped about its Star Wars projects, there’s plenty that we know about The Mandalorian season 2 right now.
The cast has all but been confirmed. We now have multiple trailers out, and we even know how long it is going to be (eight episodes, just like season 1). Still, there’s plenty more to weed out as far as any misdirections and rumors. (And there’s been a ton so far!)
So, as we’re ready to see the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda back together again, here’s everything you need to know about The Mandalorian season 2.
The Mandalorian season 2 release date
As a Disney+ exclusive, this means the series (of course) will only be on Disney+. And the series will begin streaming on Friday, Oct. 30, 2020. For those in the U.S., the episodes are expected to drop at 3 a.m. ET. So you can stay up super late (depending on where you are) if you really want to beat the crowd before spoilers.
Then, episodes will continue to release weekly after that. This means, unlike Netflix and some other streamers, the episodes won’t drop all at once. If you’re looking to binge the series, you’ll have to wait eight weeks until the season premieres in full. But if you hate spoilers (and ones like these are hard to avoid), you’ll probably want to watch each episode week by week. Just like last season, we anticipate these episodes will run between 30 minutes to an hour.
The Mandalorian season 2 cast
A majority of the season 1 cast will be returning for season 2. That includes Pedro Pascal, of course, who plays the lead, Din Djarin (or Mando). Here’s a full list of the main cast:
- Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian)
- Gina Carano (Cara Dune)
- Carl Weathers (Greef Karga)
- Giancarlo Esposito (Moff Gideon)
- Sasha Banks (Unknown)
In addition to that, it’s been heavily reported that Rosario Dawson will appear in season 2 as the live-action version of Ahsoka Tano. Neither Disney nor Lucasfilm have confirmed this themselves, but it seems pretty much like a given. Disney+ Denmark seemed to confirm it on the sly, as well as the inclusion of actor Timothy Olyphant in an unknown role. Lastly, while Sasha Banks has been confirmed in the trailer, her character has yet to be officially confirmed.
The Mandalorian season 2 trailer
Star Wars released the first trailer for The Mandalorian season 2 on Sept. 15, 2020 — just a little over a month from when the first episode would be dropping for season 2. You can check out the official trailer for The Mandalorian season 2 in the video below.
The Mandalorian season 2 synopsis
Here’s how Disney+ officially describes The Mandalorian season 2:
"The Mandalorian and the Child continue their journey, facing enemies and rallying allies as they make their way through a dangerous galaxy in the tumultuous era after the collapse of the Galactic Empire."
Brief, yes, but we know so much excitement is in store for this next installment of The Mandalorian. We hope the show will continue to keep up with the momentum of season 1 and even try to outdo itself in season 2!
