K-2SO won’t be in at least the first season of the Disney+ Andor series.

There’s been little talk recently of Andor, the upcoming Disney+ series as a Rogue One. The most recent news comes from Alan Tudyk, the actor who performed as and voiced K-2SO.

It turns out he is not in the series. Tudyk told Collider that he was not in the series as of right now.

Tudyk said:

"They’re shooting it right now, I’m not in it. But, if it stays on the air, stories keep getting told, I’ll end up in there."

It’s an interesting turn to take because it was explicitly stated he would be in the series. At the D23 Expo in 2019, both Tudyk and Diego Luna, who plays Andor, were brought on stage to talk about the series.

Part of the appeal of Rogue One was K-2SO. He was a bit of light in a dark movie. The re-programmed Imperial droid was great for light moments but was also a fabulous partner to Andor. He always had his back and was a voice of reason at times. K-2SO was also amusing.

Will K-2SO ever appear in Andor?

However, all hope is not lost. For fans who want to see K-2SO, they will just have to wait until a bit later. Tudyk did tell Collider his character is part of Andor’s story, just further down the line.

"I’m going to be in the show. It’s just that the story that Tony [Gilroy] is telling doesn’t involve K-2SO until later on… I can’t be too specific, but I can definitely say that I’m not going to be in the first season."

First season, you say?

As Collider points out, this is not a limited series like Kenobi if they are already planning for more than one season. But Tudyk is likely hoping for more than one season since it seems that’s the only way his character will be coming back.
