Season two of the show recently finished filming; however, the secretive cast list is now leaking and we’re starting to see heavy hitters join the universe. Last week, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones star Temuera Morrison joined the cast. He previously played famous bounty hunter Jango Fett but is now reportedly playing his son, Boba Fett.
A few days ago, Katee Sackoff (Battlestar Galactica) also joined the cast as famous Clone Wars alum Bo-Katan.
The Mandalorian season two will see the return of Pedro Pascal as a titular bounty hunter, Gina Carano as Cara Dune, Carl Weathers as Greef Karga, Emily Swallow as the Armorer, Bill Burr as Mayfeld, Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand and Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon. The series will also include some newcomers including Rosario Dawson as Jedi Ahsoka Tano, with Michael Biehn and Sasha Banks in unknown roles. There are also rumors that Jamie Lee Curtis could have a role in the series, but has yet to be confirmed.
Directors on the series include Bryce Dallas Howard (Pete’s Dragon), Peyton Reed (Ant-Man), Robert Rodriguez (Spy Kids, Alita: Battle Angel), Carl Weathers, Dave Filoni (The Clone Wars), and Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Jungle Book). Favreau will once again showrun and executive produce alongside Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.
The Mandalorian season two is on track to premiere on Disney+ sometime in October, with Disney CEO Bob Chapek confirming that the series will not be delayed due to the shutdown. A third season has already been put into development. You can catch up or rewatch season one on the streamer now.
