The Mandalorian will come back with new episodes starting on October 30th, Disney declared today on Twitter.
The declaration appears to demonstrate that the show will proceed with its weekly release schedule, much like the first season did. We don’t have a trailer for the new season yet, yet expect that inevitably since we have a date. Ideally, it’s loaded with charming Baby Yoda — or, sorry, “The Child” — moments! The Mandalorian’s come back to Disney Plus marks the first big show the streamer will have in months. Series like Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (initially set to make a big appearance over the late spring) were deferred due to production issues welcomed on by the pandemic.
The release date isn’t totally a shock; Disney CEO Bob Chapek affirmed months back that in light of remote work, The Mandalorian was as yet set to show up in October. Disney as of now has a few other Star Wars projects arranged for Disney Plus set to show up in the coming years, including a show featuring Rogue One’s Cassian Andor (played by Diego Luna) and a new series about Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi. The release date for the Obi-Wan show is less sure, after some firmly watched modifies pushed back the production schedule.
