The Book of Boba Fett has ended, leaving Star Wars fans with months to go until the next show in this universe lands on Disney+. However, despite the wait, what’s scheduled this year has many excited as we’ll be returned to fan favorites in adventures that not only fill in the gaps of the franchise’s lore but also push this beloved universe forward.

While the anticipated Ahsoka miniseries isn’t a part of the batch of Star Wars shows coming to Disney+ this year, there’s still plenty of series for fans to look forward to. Potentially on that list is The Mandalorian season 3. There’d been speculation that the third season of Din Djarin and Grogu’s story would be pushed into 2023, however, Dork Side of the Force recently reported that may not be the case.

The show’s return in 2022 would be a welcome sight considering the direction the series is set to take with the father-foundling pair who were separated in season 2. But, before we can continue their story, we’ll be dropped into several different time periods in Star Wars canon.

First up is Obi-Wan Kenobi, the limited series that’s brought Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen back into the fold for yet another clash. Here’s more on the series and the other Star Wars shows coming to Disney+ in 2022!

Plot description:

Major spoilers ahead of The Book of Boba Fett

Prior to Boba Fett’s spin-off series, it was assumed that The Mandalorian season 3 would partly focus on the separation of Mando and Grogu, however, we were disavowed of that in The Book of Boba Fett. The back half of the seven episode series largely dealt with that storyline. The result of which was Grogu returning to Mando’s side after choosing his adoptive father over continuing his Jedi training with Luke.

While it’s unclear whether or not we’ll see Luke or Ahsoka in season 3, we do know now that Grogu has reunited with Mando that the story will now most likely center on the darksaber. The weapon was created by the first Mandalorian Jedi and it’s now in Mando’s hands. He strugglex to wield the saber in The Book of Boba Fett, so it wouldn’t be surprising if we spend much of the third season with him learning how to properly use the darksaber.

He’s also on a mission to rejoin his community after revealing to the Armorer that he had removed his helmet. The consequence of that action was being ex-communicated with the only way to repent being a visit to the mines of Mandalore which no longer exist. Still, Mando is determined to do what he must to be welcomed back amongst the Mandalorians.

Between a classic Star Wars tale, a spy thriller, the next part of a beloved animated series, and an end-of-the year continuation of Mando and Grogu’s story, 2022 is looking like a wonderfully content filled year for fans.

Stay tuned to Dork Side of the Force for more news and coverage concerning these Disney+ shows and those currently in development like Ahsoka which begins filming in spring 2022.
