According to actor Alan Tudyk, Star Wars droid character K-2SO won’t be appearing in the first season of Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: Andor Disney+ series, but will be a part of the series later on. During a recent interview with Collider, the actor said:
“They’re shooting it right now, I’m not in it. But, if it stays on the air, stories keep getting told, I’ll end up in there.
“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. I can’t be too specific, but I can definitely say that I’m not going to be in the first season”
It was originally announced that Tudyk would be in the TV series, K-2SO the droid was a much more fascinating character than Andor. The first season is a success for Disney+, then we’ll finally get to see how Andor and K-S2O meet on the planet.
The 12-episode series is set 5 years before the events of Rogue One in the early days of the Rebellion versus the Empire and is defined as a “tense nail-biting spy thriller.”
The series stars Diego Luna in the main role, Genevieve O’Reilly, who will reprise her role as Mon Mothma (Rogue One, Tin Can), Denise Gough (Collett, Angels in America), Kyle Soller (Anna Karenina, The Titan), and it was also previously announced that Stellan Skarsgard (Thor, Good Will Hunting) has joined the series, along with Adria Arjona (6 Underground). Jimmy Smits and Alistair Petrie were also in talks to join as Bail Organa and General Draven.
