The runtime for The Mandalorian Chapter 14 is rumored to be the shortest of season 2 yet. 

Season 2 of The Mandalorian has revealed many grand, sweeping adventures that the Mandalorian and the Child have endured to return the little guy to his people. As we know by now, not all adventures are the same, and they’ve come with varying degrees of length.

In the last episode, “Chapter 13: The Jedi,” we got quite a long adventure — mainly because there was so much to be revealed. In that episode, Mando and Baby Yoda headed to the planet of Corvus to locate Ahsoka Tano. Upon finding her, Ahsoka was able to use the Force to communicate with Baby Yoda, and she revealed much about him. We learned that his name is Grogu and that he was a padawan on Coruscant, one who was narrowly able to escape the execution of the Jedi. By the end of the episode, Ahsoka gave Mando and little Grogu instructions on how they could get a Jedi to commit to training Baby Yoda.

Chapter 13’s episode (which was 47 minutes long), wasn’t the longest adventure yet, but it did clock in as the second-longest episode in season 2. Now, with the latest episode of The Mandalorian dropping Friday, Dec. 4 on Disney+, we may just be looking at season 2’s shortest episode yet.

Season 2 episode 6 could clock in at 32 minutes long, but that comes with a caveat. This was reported by both GamesRadar+ and, citing German website FSK as the source. The site has previously been correct before, but as of this publishing, it looks like that runtime may have been taken down (possibly due to lots of attention growing on the page).

What’s also important to note is that it looks like the site only measures how long the actual episode is, not taking into consideration credits or anything else attached to the episode. (That’s why season 2 episode 1, for instance, is listed as 52:09 and not 54:04 as Disney+ logs it).

With this episode being so short, we may be in for another filler episode. We just got some massive reveals, after all, so we might need to take a breather. With this being episode 6 out of 8, we don’t have much time to spare. But as we’ve learned by now, Jon Favreau likes to stretch out his show a bit, really giving the audience time to sit on the suspense of all the little bits of info we learned in previous episodes.
