The future of Star Wars lies with The Mandalorian. (Endgame) The Disney+ streaming series has been one of Disney’s most consistently successful projects since its purchase of Lucasfilm. As the series enters its third season, the show has launched an entire universe within the Lucasian canon, centered around Pedro Pascal’s Din Jérin and his trusted (and adorable) partner, Grogu.
As of now, it is unknown how long The Mandalorian will last. Still, showrunner Jon Favreau has broader plans with talks of several spin-off series and a “climactic story event” that will tie Mando’s story together.
It’s been a while since fans have received an update on future plans for the Mandoverse, but one of the stars of the show has offered a short quote that should intrigue those looking for more of Din and Baby Yoda.
More Mando On The Way
Speaking with Variety at D23, The Mandalorian star Katie Sackhoff hinted that plans are being made to end The Mandalorian.
Sackhoff confirmed that “[she] has been told” by producers how many seasons the series will last until it ends, but fans will “just have to wait and see if that happens”.
As a follow-up, Sackoff said that showrunners Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni “[are] constantly expanding this world” and that audiences will “never lack for [Star Wars] material:”
Variety: “How many seasons have they told you [the] Mandalorian will go to?”
Sackhoff: “You know, I’m told, but we’ll just have to wait and see if that happens.”Variety: “Oh, tell me. I won’t tell anyone.”
Sackhoff: “No one will ever know.”Variety: “Is this the amount you thought it would be?”
Sackhoff: “Yes. There will also be a shortage of materials at that time. Soon. ,
Teasing the upcoming Mandalorian Season 3, Sackhoff told Yahoo! Entertainment in the same event that this season is “different”. It is still the show that “people love and know” but it has been compared to “The Moving Train:”, calling it a “slightly faster pace”:
“So this season, as you’ve seen in the trailer, there’s a lot more Mandalorians in the season. And with so many Mandalorians in a room, things will go wrong. So I can’t wait for people to see it.” … I think this season is different. I think it’s The Mandalorian. It’s everything that people love and know about the show, but I believe this season is a little too fast And believe me… tonight… it’s like a moving train and all you have to do is get on it.”
How Much Mandalorian is too Much?
Sure, fans haven’t hit the saturation point yet when it comes to Pedro Pascal’s The Mandalorian and his adventures in the galaxy, but one day this beloved character’s story will come to an end. However, as Katie Sackhoff hinted at D23, that end hasn’t been coming for quite some time.
But it’s not just a matter of creating content until it exceeds its reception. Judging by Sackhoff’s way of saying that he’s heard how many seasons the Mandalorian will eventually go through, at least one end is in sight. The series is getting at least a third and fourth season, but beyond that it is unknown what will happen in the future.
Everything has to come to an end at some point, but as mentioned earlier, MandoVerse is supposedly some sort of bombastic ending event that should get fans excited.
The Mandalorian Season 3 is set to hit Disney+ sometime in 2023, with evidence pointing to delays from its original February release.
