We just learned about everyone’s favorite Mandalorian and his buddy Grog. And there is both good news and bad news. We’re at the Lucasfilm Showcase celebrating Star Wars event, where new details about the third season of The Mandalorian have surfaced. Good news: we were told that the production of the new season has been completed!
The bad news, unfortunately, is that it looks like it will take us a while to see what the titled bounty hunter and his pint-sized buddy will do next. That’s because Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau told panelists that The Mandalorian Season 3 won’t release until February 2023. This particular month has been added via the official Mandalorian social media:

Oh, and look forward to more Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff), who returns “with unfinished business.” The members were shown a small teaser from the show, which they were asked not to release online, so expect it to leak any minute now.
Bo-Katan, for those who don’t remember the end of The Mandalorian season 2 as clearly, called Dean Djarin a fake Mandalorian before the chaotic events of the finale. Oh, and she watched Grogu leave with Luke Skywalker and R2-D2. Looks like she could be the next threat to kidnap Baby Yoda.
Eric Goldman (will open in a new tab) getFandom reports that the Mandalorian teaser shows Djarin meeting Armsmaster and Bo-Katan separately and reuniting with Grif. He states what we already know: he “goes to Mandalore to seek forgiveness for [his] misdemeanors.” Other characters featured in the trailer include the incognito Dr. Pershing, Peli Motto, and Carson Teva.
More Star Wars news: Ahsoka, Andor and more
As we’ve learned, Star Wars: Ahsoka, starring Rosario Dawson, will also debut in 2023. For Force-hungry fans who want something sooner? Andorra comes out on August 31st.
Director Jon Watts (Spider-Man: No Way Home) was there to confirm the news that he’s working on a show about 10-year-olds who are “lost in the Star Wars universe.” The series is called Star Wars: The Skeleton Squad and stars Jude Law. But do not think that this is a children’s play. The action will take place in the same era as The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett and Ahsoka.
