It’s been evident for a while that we’ll be waiting a lot longer than usual between seasons of The Mandalorian, but it’s hardly as though Disney Plus are planning to starve subscribers of Star Wars content, either.
The Book of Boba Fett recently wrapped and is on track for a December debut, while Andor is near the end of production as Obi-Wan Kenobi gets into the swing of things, with the latter pair of shows set to premiere during 2022. However, insider Daniel Richtman is reporting that we might not be seeing Din Djarin back on our screens for three years, but the tipster doesn’t expound on how he reached the conclusion that The Mandalorian could be absent until 2024.
Recent reports that came directly from folks attached to Lucasfilm revealed that Season 3 won’t be getting underway until the tail end of this year at the earliest, if not as late as mid-2022. Pedro Pascal is occupied for the better part of the next twelve months with HBO Max’s The Last of Us, but the only other project he’s attached to that hasn’t shot yet is Netflix’s We Can Be Heroes sequel, which is only in the very earliest stages of development.
Not only that, but Mando’s return is arguably much further along the development process than the likes of The Acolyte, Ahsoka and Lando given that it already has a full creative team and principal cast in place who’ve got plenty of experience bringing the world to life, so it’s hard to see where Richtman is getting his three-year time frame from without providing any background details or information. Fingers cross for fans it isn’t the case, then, because The Mandalorian is one of the biggest and most popular shows on television that’ll be sorely missed the longer time goes on.
