Disney+ has renewed The Mandalorian, which was confirmed by showrunner Jon Favreau on his Twitter account. This comes with little surprise as Favreau had previously teased that S2 was already shooting and that Carl Weathers, who plays Greef Carga, was directing an episode according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Mandalorian released on November 12 of this year, and was clearly the stand out hit for the Disney+ streaming service in 2019
Showrunner and creator Jon Favreau confirmed the renewal via Twitter, saying that the second installment is due to debut in Fall 2020.
Favreau had previously teased that shooting on season 2 was already underway, and had also revealed that Carl Weathers, who plays Greef Carga in the series, is set to direct an episode. The figurine in Favreau’s Tweet is a Gamorrean, a pig-lizard species which guarded Jabba the Hut in earlier “Star Wars” films, hinting that season 2 might explore their native planet of Gamorr, or perhaps even venture into Jabba’s palace on Tatooine.
“The Mandalorian,” which stars Pedro Pascal (“Game of Throne”) as the titular bounty hunter, also wrapped its first season on Friday. The series also stars Carl Weathers as Greef Karga, Gina Carano as Cara Dune and Nick Nolte as Kuiil.
