As season 1 of The Mandalorian is coming into its final episodes, fans are ready to see when Season 2 will be available.

Fans Of The Mandalorian Will Never Believe The Release Can Be Soon Enough

Many of the Star Wars fans have come to love The Mandalorian as it has unfolded on Disney+. Viewers are saying it has been the best Star Wars show in a long time.

The release date of the second season has yet to be announced but it is in the works. For some fans, no release date can be soon enough because they just can’t get enough.

If fans could choose, Season 2 would be out early next year. But, shooting has just begun for it and the production could take a while. If Season 2 also has eight episodes, that’s roughly the same as making two movies, especially if they continue the quality of the show.

So, unless Jon Favreau and his team can work at impossible speeds, the earliest fans could see this season is late next year. It would also give some nice symmetry to the show, Season 1 premiering in late 2019 and Season 2 premiering in late 2020.


However, the likeliness of Season 2 dropping next year is more unlikely than it dropping in 2021. This would space out the Star Wars projects evenly. Since Rise of Skywalker is releasing next month, there would be a gap in 2020 and The Mandalorian Season 2 would drop in 2021, followed by the next movie in 2021. Disney executives have said that one of the reasons Solo: A Star Wars Story didn’t blow up the box office was the flooding of Star Wars movies in the market. TV shows are a different game, but Disney doesn’t want to take a chance on that happening again.

Disney Has A Lot Coming For Fans In 2021

On the other hand, Disney could release Season 2 next year, being that 2021 is going to be dominated by four Marvel movies and four shows on Disney+. Being that these are two massive franchises for Disney, they might not want them to crowd each other.

There is a case to be made for 2020 and 2021, but regardless, it’s probably best for fans to take a page out of Obi-Wan’s book and practice patience.

The season has been racking up on interesting directors too. Bryce Dallas Howard directed the fourth episode in the season, following in her father Ron’s footsteps. The final episode has been directed by Taika Waititi, who took part in directing Thor: Ragnarok and Jojo Rabbit.

According to CheatSheet, thanks to Netflix’s encouragement, those who use streaming platforms love to binge-watch. Once one episode ends, the next one begins without having to prompt it. This allows viewers to watch seasons of their favorite shows in a few sittings.

Disney chose to go a different way with its first live-action Star Wars series. But it has worked to their advantage. By releasing all the episodes together, viewers talk about it for a few weeks but then that’s it. Disney thinks it’s better to stretch it out so the anticipation continues rather than come in one short burst.
