Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: Andor is not a very exciting Star Wars project that’s in development right now. The 12-episode series is set 5 years before the events of Star Wars: Rogue One in the early days of the Rebellion against the Empire and is defined as a “tense nail-biting spy thriller.” It will see the comeback of Diego Luna in the main role of Cassian Andor, he is not the most exciting character in the Star Wars universe.
Star Wars: Andor will tell Andor’s adventurous story set during the starting years of the Rebellion. Disney and Lucasfilm seem very pleased with how Season 1 turned out, and they are already going to start working on the Season 2 of the show.
During an interview with Dagens Nyheter, co-star Stellan Skarsgård shared, “We start with [filming Dune: Part Two] in July. And then in the autumn, it’s time for the second season of the Star Wars series Andor. I do not know when they will start broadcasting it. It will take some time so that it does not take too long between season one and season two.”
Luna talked about the series earlier and said, “You’ll definitely see familiar faces. I can tell you about this project like no other because I can’t spoil the ending if you’ve seen [Rogue One] already. No matter what I say, I can’t ruin the ending.”
The series also stars Genevieve O’Reilly, who will reprise her role as Mon Mothma (Rogue One, Tin Can), Denise Gough (Collett, Angels in America), and Kyle Soller (Anna Karenina, The Titan), and it was also previously announced that Stellan Skarsgard (Thor, Good Will Hunting), along with Adria Arjona (6 Underground) and Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve), Denise Gough (The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt), Kyle Soller (Poldark), and Robert Emms (Chernobyl) in undisclosed roles. Jimmy Smits and Alistair Petrie are also joining the show as Bail Organa and General Draven. There’s Forest Whitaker who will reprise his role as Saw Gerrera, and Ben Mendelsohn, who portrayed Imperial Director Orson Krennic, is rumored to come back. Alan Tudyk will finally join the series as his droid character K-2SO, but he will not appear in the first season of the show.
Andor first season is set to air in 2022.
