It has been rumored for quite some time that season 2 of Andor will premiere before the first season has even finished airing. While Alan Tudyk, who voiced the reprogrammed security droid K-2SO in the Rogue One film, did not appear in the first season of Andor, he did tease that showrunner Tony Gilroy had plans for the character in the future, according to a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly. A great deal of success has been achieved by Disney Plus in its recent foray into live-action Star Wars television, which has included the massively popular series The Mandalorian, which premiered on the platform back in 2019. Because of the show’s popularity, several spinoffs have been approved, including The Book of Boba Fett and the upcoming Ahsoka series, which will star Rosario Dawson as the rogue Jedi.
However, while it has been reported that the first season of Andor has completed production, it appears that the next Star Wars series to debut on Disney Plus will be Kenobi. Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen will reprise their prequel era roles as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, respectively, in the upcoming highly anticipated limited series. While there is no official release date at this time, Kenobi is reportedly aiming for a May 2022 release date, which would coincide with “May the 4th,” according to reports. Previous years’ unofficial Star Wars holiday has been used by Disney Plus to premiere new episodes of the franchise’s television shows, such as the animated spinoff series The Bad Batch.

Andor Season 2 Confirmed by Stellan Skarsgard in New Interview
Given that Disney+’s second live-action Star Wars series, The Book of Boba Fett, is nearing the conclusion of its final episode this week, it appears that it is time to start thinking about the streaming service’s next slate of Star Wars shows. Andor, the Rogue One prequel series, has yet to receive an official release date; however, one of the show’s cast members revealed in an interview that the show will be renewed for at least two more seasons. According to Stellan Skarsgrd in an interview with the Swedish news website Dagens Nyheter, “We start with ‘Dune 2’ in July.” Then, in the autumn, the second season of the Star Wars television series ‘Andor’ will premiere.”
Pilgrim is the codename for the first season of Andor, which began filming in London in November 2020 under the codename. In contrast to The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, which were both filmed inside the Volume, fans have noticed Andor filming on location throughout Lancashire, Dorset, and Essex, according to fans. While the production of COVID-19 was delayed several times, Diego Luna confirmed at the end of September that the series had come to an end.
As we previously reported, Alan Tudyk, the voice of everyone’s favorite security droid K-2, teased that while he might not appear in the first season of the series, series creator Tony Gilroy had definitive plans for K-2SO “later on.” Alan Tudyk’s tease was taken as a hint that Tony Gilroy had definitive plans for K-2SO “later on.” It was also confirmed that Andor will be more than a limited series, and Skarsgrd confirmed earlier reports that Dune: Part Two would begin filming in July of this year, which was previously reported.
Additionally, in addition to Luna reprising his role as Cassian Andor, Genevieve O’Reilly has been cast to reprise her role as Mon Mothma, and in yet another Swedish interview with Skarsgrd, he confirmed that Forest Whitaker is expected to reprise his role as Saw Gerrera. Adria Arjona, Kyle Soller, Denise Gough, and Robert Emms are among the newcomers to Andor, with Adria Arjona, Kyle Soller, Denise Gough, and Robert Emms all joining the cast in roles that are currently unknown.
Stephen Schiff was originally hired to serve as showrunner, but he was replaced by Gilroy before the first episode of the season could air. Gilroy, like his predecessors The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, will wear many hats in the series, and he will collaborate with his brother Dan Gilroy and Beau Willimon on the writing team. In addition to the pilot episode, Toby Haynes directed two other episodes, according to reports. Ben Caron and Susanna White were also announced as directors for the 12-episode season, which will air in 2018.
There is a strong possibility that the Ewan McGregor-led Kenobi series, which according to The Hollywood Report is reportedly eyeing a May release date, could arrive on the unofficial Star Wars holiday of May the Fourth, will be the next live-action series to arrive on Disney+.
Andor Season 2 Release Date to be expected
Director Tony Gilroy, who previously directed the Rogue One reshoots, will serve as executive producer for Andor. Due to travel issues related to the pandemic, Gilroy was unable to direct the three episodes as planned and instead handed over the reins to Toby Haynes, the director of Black Mirror. Construction in the United Kingdom is currently underway.
A critical and financial success, the 2016 film earned more than $1 billion in worldwide box office receipts. Among those who appeared in it were Luna, Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelson, Donnie Yien, Jiang Wen, Riz Ahmed, Forest Whitaker, and Ben Mendelsohn, to name a few.
