The Mandalorian will return to Disney+ for a third season next year, and with Din Djarin's quest to find a Jedi already over, the focus now looks set to shift to retaking Mandalore. What the long-term goal is for the series is hard to say, though there have been multiple hints it will somehow tie into the Star Wars sequels by revealing more about Emperor Palpatine's resurrection.
Talking at this past weekend's D23 (via SFFGazette.com), Bo-Katan Kryze actress Katee Sackhoff was asked how many seasons The Mandalorian will run for. As you might expect, she was giving nothing away, but has been given an idea!
"You know, I have been told, but we’ll just have to wait and see if that happens," she teased. "The good thing with Dave [Filoni] and Jon [Favreau] is that they’re constantly expanding this world, and I don’t think that Star Wars fans will be lacking for content any time soon."
So, The Mandalorian isn't going anywhere anytime soon. That's music to our ears, but it sounds like there may be trouble is brewing behind the scenes of the show. In a separate interview, Sackhoff would air her grievances with one of her co-stars: Grogu!
"[Grogu's] such a diva," the actress joked. "He's such a diva. He's got five guys that like have to...and some ladies that are constantly following him, making sure that like he's okay, and it's like where's my team? You know like he's just such a drama queen, but he is talented so we put up with it. I know. You have to do it. It's his show. We're all just in it."
Grogu has indeed become the biggest star in the series. At the end of The Mandalorian's second season, it looked like his time in the show had reached its end, though The Book of Boba Fett thankfully reunited him with Din Djarin so that their adventures can continue. Plus, we're sure he's not that difficult to work with.
The Mandalorian season 3 returns to Disney+ sometime in 2023.
