The Mandalorian showrunner and creator Jon Favreau wasted no time in letting fans know that another season would soon be on its way!
It’s only been a few hours since The Mandalorian dropped its season 1 finale on Disney+ , but fans didn’t have to wait very long to find out whether — and when — the second season would be heading our way.
The Mandalorian showrunner and creator Jon Favreau announced on Twitter earlier today that the sci-fi bounty hunter hit would be returning for a second season in Fall of 2020.
There’s no specific date attached to the show’s season 2 premiere. However, given the overwhelming praise and support from Star Wars fans — particularly about the show’s season 1 finale — it seems likely that the show won’t premiere too deep in fall.

The Mandalorian follows a lone gunfighter as he makes his way through the outer reaches of the galaxy, far from the authority of the New Republic. It stars Pedro Pascal as the titular Mandalorian and introduced the world to the cutest Star Wars creature in Star Wars history — Baby Yoda.
The season 1 finale wrapped up the storylines of the first season perfectly, while also setting up more adventures in season 2 with its postscript scene. While we don’t know any details yet for the upcoming second season of The Mandalorian, we’re almost certain to see more self-contained, episodic storytelling, more Western tropes and lots more Baby Yoda.
The first season of The Mandalorian had an impressive list of directors, including Dave Filoni, Rick Famuyiwa, Deborah Chow, Bryce Dallas Howard and Taika Waititi. Howard, Filoni, and Famuyiwa could all return, along with Favreau, who revealed he would be directing at least one episode. However, Deborah Chow will most likely be busy helming all of the episodes of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor.
