Disney is already working on The Mandalorian season 3

Season 2 of The Mandalorian may not be here just yet, but already Disney is moving ahead with a third season.

The third season of the Disney+ show isn’t expected to be released until October, but series creator Jon Favreau has been “writing season 3 for a while,” according to a report in Variety. The art department has been creating concepts for the show for a few weeks, and the show is already in pre-production, the article notes.

It’s unsurprising that there will be a third season of The Mandalorian, but is somewhat surprising that work on it is starting so early — especially considering the fact that the second season is still four months away. The news comes only a month after production for season 2 of the show was wrapped.

Despite the coronavirus pandemic, season 2 of the show is still expected to debut in October. Unlike some other shows, production was completed in March — and work like editing and visual effects can be completed remotely.

It’s currently unclear when season 3 of the show might debut, but considering season 1 was launched in November 2019, and season 2 is set for an October release, it’s possible Disney is targeting a late 2021 release — unless the coronavirus pandemic causes a delay, of course.

There have been plenty of reports regarding what to expect from the second season of the show. Notably, Rosario Dawson has supposedly been cast to play Ahsoka Tano, the Jedi Padawan of Anakin Skywalker. Reports from ComicBook.com indicate that Dawson’s contract includes multiple appearances in the Star Wars universe — so it’s possible we’ll see her in other upcoming movies, TV shows, and so on.

For now, The Mandalorian is one of the only available high-profile Disney+ shows. While the streaming service offers Disney’s massive catalog of movies and shows, many expect to be able to see new content — and the coronavirus pandemic is delaying much of it.

Still, at least some content may still get released on time. Marvel TV show Falcon and the Winter Soldier was expected to be released in August — and Disney has yet to announce any delays for the series.

Star Wars: The Acolyte aims to be one of the more unique additions to the Star Wars universe. This upcoming series will give audiences their first look into the world of the Jedi during the age of the High Republic. Specifically, it will follow the Jedi near the end of this era as they investigate a string of crimes that will have them uncover evil forces brewing in the shadows.

Due to the open-ended nature of this piece of Star Wars history, fans can only imagine what The Acolyte will add to the franchise. But until it premieres, here's hoping the show will feature these five things in its first season.

The Acolyte’s first trailer embraces the Dark Side of Star Wars
Amandla Stenberg in The Acolyte.

Since the launch of Disney+ in 2019, there have been four live-action Star Wars series, including The Mandalorian and Andor. But the one thing that each of those shows had in common was that they followed the hero of the story. This summer, The Acolyte is flipping the switch on that by putting the spotlight on Mae (Amandla Stenberg), a former Padawan in the Jedi Order who seems to have quite a grudge against her onetime masters. That may be why Mae is attacking and apparently killing Jedi with knives in the first trailer for The Acolyte.
