The finale of The Mandalorian season 2 was released on Disney+ in December 2020, and it was one to remember.
The story actually finished with the Mandalorian accomplishing what he set off to do at the end of season 1. In the previous season, the Mandalorian was tasked with retrieving a bounty, eventually finding out that it was Baby Yoda (Grogu). Once he realized the little guy had special powers and the Client had nefarious plans for him, Mando took it upon himself to bring the Child to safety. And, as advised by the Armorer, he was to bring Grogu to his “people,” aka, the Jedi.
That led Mando on the quest to find the Jedi (who were all nothing but a myth at this time). And long story short, the season 2 finale ended with Luke Skywalker himself coming aboard Moff Gideon’s ship where Mando and his crew lay helpless. After Luke rescued the team, Mando and Grogu had one final moment to say goodbye to one another before he was whisked away with Luke.
The season wrapped up on an emotional beat, and it felt quite complete — seeing as Mando had completed what he set out to do. And the post-credits scene had nothing to do with Din Djarin, instead focusing on Boba Fett and Fennec Shand as they set up the events for their spinoff series, The Book of Boba Fett. So is this the end of the line for The Mandalorian?
Will The Mandalorian return?
If you’re hoping for more of The Mandalorian, there’s good news. The Disney+ series will, in fact, return for a third season. We’ll just have to wait a little while until it returns.
In the past, seasons 1 and 2 aired around the end of the year in 2019 and 2020. But at the end of the year 2021 (Christmastime to be exact), The Book of Boba Fett will be the next Star Wars live-action television series to hit Disney+. This means The Mandalorian won’t return until sometime next year in 2022.
So, no, The Mandalorian is not over. There are still other things to address — such as, what will Mando do now that he’s wielding the Darksaber? And what will become of Grogu now that he’s set to train with Luke Skywalker? We’re hoping to get those answers and so much more when The Mandalorian season 3 airs, and it should be yet another great season for the show!
