“Star Wars” is back on our screens with a new season of “The Mandalorian,” which debuts on Friday, Oct. 30.

The new season will bring us back to a galaxy far, far away.

Set after the events of “Return of the Jedi,” the show follows the journey of Din Djarin, a masked warrior known as a Mandalorian. He finds a young creature named The Child (who everyone in our world calls Baby Yoda) and has been evading the Empire ever since. Well, we’ll find out what happens to them in the new season.

We’ve rounded up all the news, rumors and details we could find about the upcoming season and shared them below. Enjoy our full guide to the new season.


Cast:

  • Pedro Pascal as Din Djarin, The Mandalorian.
  • Gina Carano as Cara Dune.
  • Carl Weathers as Greef Karga.
  • Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon.
  • Sasha Banks as TBD.

Storylines to watch for:

The official Disney+ description of the upcoming season reads: “The Mandalorian and the Child continue their journey, facing enemies and rallying allies as they make their way through a dangerous galaxy in the tumultuous era after the collapse of the Galactic Empire.”

Cara Dune and Greef Karga appear poised to make a return to the show. We know they’re friends of the Mandalorian, but whether or not they can be trusted remains a question.

Moff Gideon appeared at the end of the season with the darksaber in his hands. As I wrote about for the Deseret News, the darksaber is an elegant weapon designed by the first Mandalorian Jedi Knight. It’s featured prominently in “The Clone Wars” and “Star Wars Rebels.”


Episode release dates:

Disney+ recently shared a new fact sheet about “The Mandalorian” that revealed there will be eight episodes — one released every Friday beginning on Oct. 30.

Here’s a breakdown of dates when new episodes will appear:

  • Oct. 30.
  • Nov. 6.
  • Nov. 13.
  • Nov. 20.
  • Nov. 27.
  • Dec. 4.
  • Dec. 11.
  • Dec. 18.

Episode titles?

We don’t know the official episode titles yet. But there was a rumored leak a few weeks back, which suggest the titles could be called:

  • “Chapter One: The Search.”
  • ‘Chapter Two: The Confrontation.”
  • “Chapter Three: The Bounty.”
  • “Chapter Four: The Republic.”
  • “Chapter Five: The Loyalist.”
  • “Chapter Six: The Sorcerer.”
  • “Chapter Seven: The Return.”
  • “Chapter Eight: The Empire.”

Directors:

Multiple directors will sit behind the chair for the second season. Here’s the quick list of directors for the second season.

  • Jon Favreau.
  • Dave Filoni.
  • Bryce Dallas Howard.
  • Rick Famuyiwa.
  • Carl Weathers.
  • Peyton Reed.
  • Robert Rodriguez.

Trailers:

The trailers for the new season have revealed few details about what will happen in the new season. Watch some of them below.


Rumors:

Ahsoka Tano: Multiple reports from the last few months suggest that Ahsoka Tano, one of the main characters from “The Clone Wars” animated show, would debut in this live-action series. Rosario Dawson is rumored to portray the star in the upcoming season. Tano was the apprentice of Anakin Skywalker before he became Darth Vader.

Pedro Pascal: There was a rumor toward the end of summer 2020 that Pedro Pascal, who plays the masked up Mandalorian, would be leaving the show after he reportedly complained he had to keep his mask on too much. Of course, the rumor was somewhat debunked and should be regarded as a piece of random “Star Wars” rumor.

Darth Maul: Yeah. Darth Maul could appear in “The Mandalorian” Season 2, at least according to social media rumors. In fact, Sam Witwer, who voiced Maul in “Clone Wars” and “Rebels,” and Ray Park, who played the character in “Phantom Menace,” both hinted at his inclusion in the new season, according to Forbes.

Boba Fett: Fans have waited more than a year to find out if Boba Fett would return in “The Mandalorian.” Last time we saw him, Boba Fett was thrown into the Sarlaac pit, where he presumably died. But it looks like that might not be the end of the story. Over the summer, reports leaked that Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett in “Star Wars: Attack of the Clones,” would return in “The Mandalorian” in a small role as Boba Fett, who was the son of Jango and an unaltered clone.

Timothy Olyphant: OK this one is sort of related to Boba Fett. The former star of “Deadwood,” “Justified” and “Santa Clarita Diet” will appear in “The Mandalorian” in an unknown role. There’s speculation he will wear Boba Fett’s armor. And that’s all we know.

Sasha Banks: Sasha Banks briefly appeared in the first trailer for the second season. The professional wrestler appears in a dark cloak, just as the trailer mentions the Jedi Knights. There’s some speculation she could be Ahsoka or Sabine Wren, one of the main characters in “Star Wars Rebels.”
