THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT Star Temuera Morrison Says He's Still Pushing For Lucasfilm To Make Season 2

The Book of Boba Fett seemingly remains a one-and-done for the iconic Star Wars character, but Temuera Morrison says he's still trying to talk Lucasfilm into making a second season. Check it out...

As we today, there's still nothing to suggest that Lucasfilm has renewed The Book of Boba Fett for a second season. With that in mind, it's looking increasingly unlikely that the iconic bounty hunter's story will continue in his own series. 

Actor Temuera Morrison hasn't shied away from criticising the way he was left on the shelf when The Mandalorian season 3 rolled around and has even said Din Djarin taking centre stage in The Book of Boba Fett played a role in "ruining" the spin-off. 

While harsh, it's a valid observation in some ways because an entire episode of the show was devoted to Din and Grogu. Both characters - and their heartfelt reunion - largely overshadowed Fett during the finale and became the main reason for many Star Wars fans to tune in. 

That's not to say the series didn't have its fair share of issues, though; while Boba's attempt to take over Tatooine's criminal underworld made for interesting viewing, The Book of Boba Fett's villains were forgettable and the story behind his return perhaps softened the character too much (the less said about that colourful biker gang, the better). 

During a recent convention appearance, Morrison was asked about working with Fennec Shand actress Ming-Na Wen and shared their dashed hopes to continue teaming up. "Both her and I wanted to work pretty hard in the hope that they might carry on [and] do a 2 and a 3 and a 4 and a 5 and a 6 and a 7," the actor revealed.

"I've been trying to nudge them in that direction too," he said when asked about the show's possible return. "It needs more nudging, but anyway..."

Morrison doesn't seem overly positive about The Book of Boba Fett receiving a second season and, with Disney looking to slash streaming costs, there's a good chance he'll be relegated to a supporting role in The Mandalorian and Grogu movie. 

In some respects, it makes sense for the show to remain a limited series. After all, it finally solved the mystery of how the bounty hunter survived the events of Return of the Jedi and ultimately solidified his place as Tatooine's new leader.

While there was room to tell more stories, the response to the spin-off was a little tepid and the way things played out wasn't what many fans wanted to see from a character who was arguably at his best as a mysterious bounty-hunting badass. 

We are, however, eager to learn what became of Cobb Vanth and what Fett's continued role in watching over Tatooine means for this corner of the Galaxy Far, Far Away moving forward.

Make it, but the inspector gadget gen z gang die in the first episode, except that biker chick she cool, and Boba Fett is actually a badass warlord, and doesent take ten episodes to hire 2 goons, and be a side character for mando.

Ok, it was ruined several times over before that. Ffs, it basically started with Boba fett fighting for the liberation of Tuskan raiders, of all things.

@Origame - I could never understand how some people said they liked that plot. Sure the city warlord plot may have had more terrible elements, but the Tuskan Raider plot sucked too. That show was terrible all the way around.

@mountainman - they were so desperate to not make him a bounty hunter because of the mandalorian they forgot there's nothing else to his character.

@mountainman - I thought the Tusken part at the beginning was the best part. Then everything crumbled.

I hope they get a season 2 to redeem it! Get him off Tatooine, and get Rodriguez FAR away from it.

In Mando, Fett had been more brutal, and there were story ties to his father. I think that’s the biggest miss of the show. Delve into that drama, that little boy who sees his dad beheaded. Why he would fall into a life of violence & crime is obvious. But what pulls him out?

Yes we have the catharsis of near death in the Sarlaac. And rebirth with the Tusken. But show Fett was done with it all before that too.

My pitch: show young Fett in his prime, just before ROTJ. He takes a bounty, but he winds up killing the guy in front of his kid. Heck, make Fett decapitate the guy. Fett becomes what he was running from. He can’t reneg on his contract, so after delivery he returns to the client out of armor to anonymously enact revenge for the little boy. Fan gasp, have Daniel Logan play the young Fett. He’s of age, and there’s shots of him in the suit and he looks great. Show this as the moment Fett starts to question his life of death selling, and decides to do better than even his father. And, to fight back against the criminals who made him and his father into what they were.

Not a great pitch, but friggin better than slow
moving space vespas, & having Fett lead Nothing in his own show.

@MG0019 - The only reason the Tuskan stuff was the best part was because the city warlord part was basically unwatchable. if you liked it, power to you. I found it boring and pointless like the show overall.

I had my issues with the show (mainly structurally) but I did find it decently enjoyable overall…

I can understand if some others didn’t like the direction the character went in after his “rebirth” (or if you liked the EU take more) but as someone who has only known him as the cool looking bounty hunter who did pretty much nothing in the original trilogy or the somewhat bratty kid in TCW , this made him an actual character imo that i liked.

His time with the Tusken Raiders was the highlight imo (aswell as their continued fleshing out ) so if it does get future seasons , I wouldn’t mind seeing Boba try to negotiate an alliance with the other groups on the planet and how some might join or go against him even.

I actually really like the boba series. I really wish they make a second season I’d like to see more of boba. He’s the only character from the original series who feels like he deserves his own platform to tell his story. The show took a complete 180 in the end ruining it with mando and grogu taking over the narrative but the finale was great. Lots of action especially with grogu and cad bane.

@TheMetaMan - Cad bane was cool and a nice antagonist for Boba given their past.

Doesn't matter if the first show wasn't that good, if they have a strong story for the second of course they should.

@Itwasme - yep

Things can always be improved upon.

I refuse to believe that their was more to the story of Boba Fett.
Like Highlander, Ghostbusters, Jaws, and some others, those were one off movies that told a beginning, middle and end, and the journey of the participants is over.
Boba Fett is rotting in the stomach of the Sarlacc.

Rather see it be made into a (tv) movie, like the first season already should've been (same with Kenobi). That weird stoey structure did it no favours at all. Two hours of straight forward action would be much better imo.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 7/1/2024, 5:06 PM
@bkmeijer1 - I feel like Kenobi worked better structure wise for the most part

Though it has its own shortcomings & issues.

@TheVisionary25 - I did like the six episodes followed the six original movie.

Episode 1 was the origin on the desert planet, 2 the detective story, 3 the confrontation with Vader, 4 the fortress rescue, 5 escape from the Empire and 6 the final fight.

Still, it felt kinda bloated. Think it easily could've slimmed down from six 35 minute episodes to four 30 minute acts.

I’d be up for Boba Fett story set just before Empire Strikes Back, use Tem’s voice, find a stuntman for the show. Have Vader and the Emperor have a prominent role as he’s hunting down Jedi for the Empire. Bring in Cal Kestis and use that scene from Jedi Survivor, but in live action.

Tagline: Before the Sarlaac Pit, he was feared throughout the galaxy.

Doesn’t seem necessary, IMO.

It just didn’t feel like a star wars show and was not the crimellird story it was promised to be. If they do do it, please don’t bring Robert Rodriguez back. The neon tatooine street gang?? Wtf was that??
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 7/1/2024, 8:56 PM
@DanFlashesShirt - felt like Star Wars to me but yeah , wasn’t really a crime story much.

Also I didn’t mind the colorful biker gang , felt like something that would have been in the prequels and something Lucas would have done considering he was the guy behind American Graffiti aswell.

They really fvcked up Boba Fett. Should've been a Dredd like character that's a hard PG-13 or R. Shame

A second season of this show is about as necessary as madame web 2…

My favorite character was Fennec Shand. I'd like to see more of her.

The Book Of Boba Fett is better than The Acolyte.
I sat through the whole season of The Book Of Boba Fett but The Acolyte, just two episodes.
