Surprising almost no one, news surfaced today that the third season of The Mandalorian is already being worked on. Variety broke the news today that Favreau has been writing it and the season is in pre-production with concept work underway.
This expected news as Bob Iger confirmed a third season of The Mandalorian during Disney’s earnings call back in February:
“The priority in the next few years is television with The Mandalorian Season 2 coming in October, and then more coming from The Mandalorian thereafter, including the possibility of infusing it with more characters and the possibility of taking those characters in their own direction in terms of series.”
Still, it’s good news to know that work is underway on the third season even as so much has been shut down due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. We’re likely to see the third season in Fall 2021.
