“Star Wars” actor Alan Tudyk — who voiced the robot K-2S0 in “Rogue One” — recently revealed that the upcoming spinoff show “Andor” could have multiple seasons.

  • “Andor” is a Disney+ spinoff show centered around Cassian Andor (played by Diego Luna), the Rebel soldier from “Rogue One.”
  • Tudyk’s K-2S0 teamed up with Andor in that film. Both later perished at the hands of the Empire.
  • Tudyk recently told Collider that he won’t be involved with the new “Andor” show, which was officially announced in December 2020 at Disney’s Investor Day. But, he said, the droid could return down the road in the show if it has multiple seasons.
  • “I’m going to be in the show. It’s just that the story that Tony (Gilroy) is telling doesn’t involve K-2SO until later on,” he told Collider. “I can’t be too specific, but I can definitely say that I’m not going to be in the first season.”

What to expect

Luna, the actor who played Cassian Andor in “Rogue One,” told The Hollywood Reporter back in December that the show will offer an exciting new way to explore his character.

I think it’s really interesting to tell a story even though we know where it ends. The way you can approach a story like this inevitably takes you into a deeper process of reflection. I tend to use that word a lot. So once you know what Cassian is capable of, then there’s room for so much exploration, and that’s something that excites me a lot as an actor. I think the format of a series is amazing because we have a lot of time to explore all those layers. What happens in ‘Rogue One’ is something we can actually reflect on, and what’s behind something like (sacrificing an informant). I think it’s a very interesting challenge, the one we have in front of us. So I’m really excited to go back to that character because I really enjoyed playing him, and I was really happy with what the film represents. ‘Rogue One’ was a story of regular people. It was regular people doing incredible things, and in a way, it’s a film that reminds us of the power we all have if we have a conviction. So, yeah, I feel blessed to have the chance to revisit this role.

When is the release?

StarWars.com revealed that the show will be “a tense nail-biting spy thriller” that will be released on Disney+ in 2022, as I wrote for the Deseret News.
