Is the Release Date of Andor Season 2 Announced by Disney Plus?
Andor is galaxies (far, far away) beyond anything else currently being created in the Star Wars universe. Everything about this realm, from the emotional conversation and sophisticated character development to the stunning set design, makes us want to remain there forever.
While that is not conceivable, we can affirm that Andor will return for its second and last season. Cassian’s journey was always going to finish with the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars journey, and it’s comforting to know that showrunner Tony Gilroy intends to tell a full, complete story without overstaying Andor’s welcome. This show will never outstay its welcome, but you get the idea.
So, what comes next for Cassian after that heartbreaking conclusion? Grab a weapon and join us as we blast our way through all you need to know about Andor season two on Disney Plus.
Andor Season 2 Potential Release Date
Before the conclusion of season one, Andor showrunner Tony Gilroy disclosed that photography for season two began on November 21 (via Collider) and will continue until August 2023.
In addition, there is post-production labor to consider. Referring to the timetable for the first season, Gilroy stated, “If the past is prologue and we repeat the same actions, it will be on the same schedule. It will be available two years later.”
“The only place you can accelerate processes is in the post, and the only way you can accelerate in a post is with money, and money is tight,” Gilroy added.
“Therefore, I don’t really know, there would need to be significant motivation in May or June of next year or something. Someone would have to say, “Wow, we really need this, and we’re willing to pay X,” for the price to be acceptable. Rogue One demonstrated that if you toss money at something, it can be completed extremely quickly. It’s just ridiculously costly.”
Unless the House of Mouse starts tossing Andor cold, hard currency, it appears that Cassian will not return for a second season until at least 2024.
Andor Season 2 Cast
Many of the cast members from Season 1 will return for Season 2, headlined by Diego Luna. Stellan Skarsgrd has been observed filming, while Genevieve O’Reilly and Forest Whittaker will reprise their roles as Rebellion commanders Mon Mothma and Saw Gerrera, respectively.
Denise Gough and Kyle Soller are scheduled to play important roles in the Andor season 2 cast as Dedra Meero and Syril Karn following their surprising conclusion in Andor episode 12.
The confirmed cast of Andor season 2 includes:
- Cassian Andor is played by Diego Luna.
- Mon Mothma is played by Genevieve O’Reilly.
- Luthen Rael is played by Stellan Skarsgard.
- Syril Karn is played by Kyle Soller.
- Dedra Meero is played by Denise Gough.
- Saw Gerrera is played by Forest Whitaker.
- Adria Arjona in the role of Bix Caleen
- Andy Serkis
What Will Happen in Andor Season 2?
Season 2 of Andor will directly lead up to the moment when Cassian joins the mission to retrieve the Death Star plans. The final three episodes will cover the three days preceding Rogue One’s events. The second season will span four years in Star Wars time, and we can anticipate time shifts every three episodes as the Death Star mission unfolds. We can also anticipate that Cassian will rise within the Rebel Alliance to become a leader.
We anticipate that there will be a large number of new characters and planets in Andor, which will necessitate a large number of interesting new filming locations.
The fact that Andor appears so much better than other Star Wars series was one of the highlights of the first season, and this is primarily due to the use of real-world locations. We hope season 2 brings more of the same, but we’ll be satisfied if Disney realizes that season 2 of Andor must do these five things.
Andor Season 2 Trailer Rumors
There is currently no season 2 trailer for Andor. We’ll probably have to wait a while for that because the program hasn’t finished production yet, so we expect the first teaser to be released in early 2024.
Where Can We Watch the Season 2 of Andor?
Season 2 of Andor will be available on Disney Plus when it premieres. The series will be exclusive to the streaming service, and the entire first season is currently available there.
How Many Episodes Will Comprise Season 2 of Andor?
Season 2 of Andor will consist of 12 episodes, just like the first season. There is no possibility that a third season of Andor will be developed. For the time being, this is all we know about the Andor season 2 release date, but we will keep our antennae to the ground.
