'The Mandalorian' has wrapped up its first season with a bang, and fans are already clamoring for Season 2.

The adventurers of the helmeted warrior with a fierce devotion to the Mandalorian way of life has proven to be a big hit with 'Star Wars' fans, with its exploration of genre storytelling through in a distinctly 'Star Wars' setting.

Set in the Outer Rim of a galaxy far, far away, the series follows the adventures of a bounty hunter and his journeys through the galaxy protecting a mysterious force-sensitive child of an unknown species that the internet has collectively come to know as Baby Yoda. 

If the marketing for Season 1 is anything to go by, the producers of the show are going to be keeping information close to the chest, but we will regularly be updating this page as news comes in.

Release Date

According to a tweet from Jon Favreau, the second season of 'The Mandalorian' is set to release in the fall of 2020. 

Plot

In Season 1, the Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) rescues a force-sensitive child from interested parties in the fallen Empire — specifically, Imperial officer Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito).

The Armorer (Emily Swallow), keeper of Mandalorian ways has tasked the Mandalorian with finding the child's people and returning the child to them, while in the meantime raising the child in the ways of the Mandalorians.

Season 2 will likely see the Mandalorian and the child searching the galaxy for the child's as-yet-unnamed species, while the Mandalorian teaches the child the Mandalorian way. 

Moff Gideon shall likely be on their tail, however, as the final moments of the Season 1 finale revealed that despite his crashed ship, Gideon is alive and well, and wielding the legendary Darksaber

Cast

With 'The Mandalorian' having a history of its side characters dropping in and out of the show, the only person we know for sure who will be reprising their role is the Mandalorian himself — Pedro Pascal.

Pedro Pascal stars as the titular character. Before 'The Mandalorian', he was best known for his role as Oberyn Martell in 'Game of Thrones' and Javier Peña on 'Narcos'.

Director/Writer

Currently, all we know is that Jon Favreau is attached to Season 2. He served as creator, head writer, showrunner and executive producer for Season 1. As the writer and director of many of the season's episodes, it's fair to assume that he will be doing the same for Season 2 of the series.

Trailers

No trailers have been released yet for Season 2.
