Rosario Dawson's Ahsoka Tano was one of the key cameos in 'The Mandalorian' Season 2.  Seconds into Episode 5, white lightsabers blazing through a foggy night, she dominated the screen. Ahsoka was absolutely the star of the episode, and the Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) himself was almost a side character in this chapter. In this episode, we see a Jedi team up with a Mandalorian, find out the name of the Child (no more "Baby Yoda"), and take down a tyrant on a beautifully barren planet in one of the best 'The Mandalorian' episodes to date.

With 'The Mandalorian' Season 3 set to see the return of Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan Kryze along with Temuera Morrison as Boa Fett, and Carl Weathers as Greef Karga, speculations are rife if Dawson will return for a cameo in the third season. In one word, the answer may be a no, but with Star Wars, some immense fan service is always on the cards, so there might actually be one minor appearance.

Fans will be familiar with the fact that Ahsoka said she was on the quest seeking Thrawn, and that would pretty much make for the plot of her own standalone series. However, with 'The Book of Boba Fett' serving as a backdoor pilot for 'The Mandalorian' Season 3, there are chances that she may make a brief appearance in helping Mando take down the threat he faces from his own kind in the latest installment. 

Ahsoka has a rich history in the 'Star Wars' universe as a former padawan central in creating a network of various rebel cells against the Galactic Empire after the Clone Wars. The Togruta female was brought to the Jedi Temple by Plo Koon and assigned by Jedi master Yoda to be the Padawan learner of their skilled knight, Anakin Skywalker. For now, there are conflicting theories floating around on the web that she would be part of Season 3, but only the Lucasfilms folks will know for sure.

'The Mandalorian' Season 3 is set to premiere in 2023.
