“Star Wars: Andor” just debuted its first three episodes today on Disney+. New episodes will release weekly through November 23, 2022. A second season of the series has already been confirmed and showrunner Tony Gilroy recently confirmed the filming dates for Season 2.
While speaking to The Wrap, Gilroy revealed that the second season would film from November 2022 through to August 2023, with post-production expecting to last around a year, suggesting we are unlikely to see Season 2 until 2024.
You can read part of the interview from The Wrap below:
Gilroy said that his work on “Andor” is really sticking around considering they still have to produce and release “Andor” Season 2. “I have two more years to go,” Gilroy said. “We start shooting in November on Part 2. And I don’t know if … Our past pattern was two years, but I mean, I’ll be on … We’ll shoot from November to August. And then our post[-production] last time was about a year.”
That probably means, at the earliest, we can expect “Andor” Season 2 (or part two, as Gilroy calls it) in fall 2024. But if the first batch is any indication, it’ll be worth the wait.
It’s worth noting that Disney has not announced a release schedule for “Andor” Season 2 and a 2023 release date isn’t entirely out of the question, but by Gilroy’s estimation, he’ll be spending quite a bit more time in this specific corner of the “Star Wars” universe before the world sees it.
The “Andor” series explores a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s journey to discover the difference he can make. The series brings forward the tale of the burgeoning rebellion against the Empire and how people and planets became involved. It’s an era filled with danger, deception and intrigue where Cassian will embark on the path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero.
Diego Luna returns as Cassian Andor and is joined by cast members Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller and Fiona Shaw.
The executive producers are Kathleen Kennedy, Sanne Wohlenberg, Diego Luna and Michelle Rejwan. Tony Gilroy is the creator and showrunner.
Seasons 1 and 2 will reportedly consist of twelve episodes each with the final episode from Season 2 leading into Rogue One.
