Mere days after The Mandalorian premiered alongside Disney+, Disney’s ad-free streaming service, director and creator Jon Favreau dropped the bomb, they’re making a second season. Announced on an Instagram post, Favreau shared a picture of the helmet worn by the protagonist. The text cites “Greetings from the set of #TheMandalorian season 2”.
The Mandalorian was hit with a wave of praise as its pilot launched beside the streaming service. The series is set to have eight episodes airing every week with episode two coming this Friday.
Since the series is running a weekly schedule, it’s hard to tell what turns the series will take or what’s in store for season two.
Disney+ launched November 12 and costs $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year.
