With The Mandalorian Season 2 now weeks away, the future of the show remains as mysterious as the origins of Baby Yoda. However, in the chaos of the Emmys pre-show, one Mandalorian actor let something slip about where the show will lead in the long run, but beware: It’s not all good news.
In an interview with People, Mandalorian star (and Better Call Saul supporting actor nominee) Giancarlo Esposito commented on the future of the show and when fans can expect to learn more about villain Moff Gideon.
“We’re living in a universe that is huge and there’s so much to explore,” Esposito said. “So I think this show is going to lay the ground work for the depth and breadth that’s gonna come in Season 3 and Season 4, where you’re really gonna start to get answers.”
On the bright side, this is the first mention of a Season 4 we’ve had from anyone involved with the production. So not only is there an expectation this series won’t be given the chop by Disney+ anytime soon, but also there’s an overarching plan to the story. This is a pretty big change after the improvisational quality of the last three Skywalker Saga films, which suffered due to the absence of a clear vision for the overall story.
