The Mandalorian season 2 ended on a high note for fans, as the one and only Luke Skywalker made an appearance to take Grogu away and we got the epic tease of the next live-action series, The Book of Boba Fett. With such an awesome finale, however, we’re left with questions about what’s next for Din Djarin. The entire show so far has followed his journey to keep Baby Yoda safe, and now that he no longer has that responsibility, we have to wonder where the lovable character will do in season 3.
The Disney+ series has been a major success for Star Wars ever since it premiered in 2019, and has gone on to win seven Emmy Awards. That’s pretty impressive for a show with only two seasons under its belt. And so, it was a no-brainer that The Mandalorian season 3 would be in the works, though many other details about it have been kept under wraps.
Is The Mandalorian season 3 happening?
The good news we have right now is that The Mandalorian season 3 is indeed happening. It was announced back in April 2020 by Variety that the third installment was already in the works ahead of the second season premiere later that year.
The Mandalorian season 3 release date
The previous belief was that The Book of Boba Fett and The Mandalorian season 3 would debut on Disney+ in 2021. The Wrap even reported that last December. However, The Mandalorian instead has been confirmed to release in February 2023.
An exact release date has not yet been set, but Disney Plus confirmed the series will return for its third season in early 2023 which is far later than many expected season 3 to debut.
