Mando and Grogu reunite in The Mandalorian season 3 trailer

Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal from The Last of Us) and Grogu reunite and navigate the galaxy in the new trailer for The Mandalorian season 3, which Lucasfilm released during Monday night’s NFL playoff game.

At the end of season 2, Mando left Grogu in the hands of Luke Skywalker (Star Wars’ Mark Hamill). However, the bounty hunter and “Baby Yoda” reunited in The Book of Boba Fett. In season 3, Mando and Grogu head to Mandalore so that Din “may be forgiven for his transgressions.” According to the logline, Mando will encounter other Mandalorians as he crosses paths with “old allies and makes new enemies as he and Grogu continue their journey together.”

The trailer teases the return of familiar faces, including Greef Karga (Rocky’s Carl Weathers), The Armorer (SEAL Team’s Emily Swallow), and Peli Motto (The Lion King’s Amy Sedaris). Season 3 will also feature Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) as Moff Gideon, Katee Sackhoff (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as Bo-Katan Kryze, and Omid Abtahi (Fear the Walking Dead) as Dr. Pershing. 

Lucasfilm announced the list of directors for season 3, and it features previous directors from past seasons and introduces new ones to the Star Wars universe. Season 3 directors include Rachel Morrison (Black Panther cinematographer), Lee Isaac Chung (Minari), and Peter Ramsey (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse). Previous Mandalorian directors Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) and Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World Dominion) will also direct an episode in season 3, along with Weathers.

The Mandalorian was an important show in the current era of Star Wars. After two trilogies of divisive films, The Mandalorian was a piece of Star Wars content that just about everyone liked -- especially in the first season. It's the lowest common denominator in terms of Star Wars storytelling, but that's exactly what this agitated fan base has needed over the past few years.

With season three in the books, let's look back at all 24 episodes of the show so far (Book of Boba Fett not included), and attempt to highlight the very best the show has offered so far.

The Mandalorian season 3 episodes, ranked from worst to best

It's been a long wait for the third season of The Mandalorian, with several other Star Wars shows getting their time in the sun in between. The refreshingly different Andor, Ewan McGregor's comeback vehicle Obi-Wan Kenobi, and more Star Wars animated ventures all kept fans occupied while they waited for the further adventures of Din, Grogu, and the rest of the gang.

And while The Mandalorian season 3 has felt somewhat aimless in spots, the story thankfully came to a compelling conclusion with its final two episodes. The biggest sticking points were the episodes that generally lost the main bounty hunter narrative, but the highest-ranking chapters focusing on the overarching plot mostly right the ship for Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), Grogu, and Bo-Katan Kryze's (Katee Sackhoff) exploits.

The Mandalorian season 3 finale gives the Star Wars series a much-needed reset
Bo-Katan holds up the Darksaber in The Mandalorian season 3 finale.

And just like that, The Mandalorian season 3 is over. Coming off a seemingly game-changing episode last week, the series’ highly anticipated season 3 finale, titled The Return, premiered this Wednesday on Disney+. To say that the episode wraps up all of The Mandalorian season 3’s remaining loose ends would be quite the understatement, too.

Not only does the finale give fans the climactic confrontation between Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito), Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), and Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff) that they’ve long waited to see, but it also sets the latter two characters on totally different paths. For Bo-Katan, her role in the reconstruction of Mandalore seems to be just beginning. For Din Djarin, a new road has been laid out in front of him that isn't all that different from the one he used to walk.
