The wait for The Mandalorian Season 3 is almost over. Now series creator Jon Favreau has revealed that The Mandalorian Season 4 has already been written. It’s worth noting that Disney and Lucasfilm have yet to announce a fourth season of the Star Wars show – so this is the first we’re hearing of it.
As shared via Variety, Favreau wrote the show’s fourth season so that they could better map out the storyline. The Mandalorian is part of several interconnected Star Wars shows that all take place at the same time. This includes the upcoming Disney Plus series Ahsoka.
Here’s what he stated regarding The Mandalorian Season 4:
“Season 4, yeah I’ve written it already,” Favreau said. “We have to know where we’re going to tell a fully formed story. We had mapped it out, Dave [Filoni] and I, and slowly you start to write each episode. I was writing it during post-production. All of it has to feel like a continuation and one full story.”
He continued to explain that Dave Filoni is busy with Ahsoka:
“[Dave’s] doing ‘Ahsoka,’ which I’m producing with him. He’s the writer and showrunner on that. To understand what’s happening on other shows….‘Skeleton Crew’ all take place within the same ‘Star Wars’ time period. There’s a lot more things that we’ve got to keep in mind and also stuff that we’ve built up to from previous seasons of ‘The Mandalorian’ as well.”
Hopefully we’ll have news regarding these additional Star Wars projects in the near future. For now, however, at least we know they’re paying attention to the continuity for these upcoming shows.
The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau wrote all eight episodes of the show’s third season. He was assisted with Noah Kloor on the third episode while Dave Filoni was involved with the fourth and seventh episodes. Directors for the season include Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, and co-star Carl Weathers.
The cast of the new season includes Pedro Pascal, Giancarlo Esposito, Carl Weathers, Katee Sackhoff, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, Amy Sedaris, Christopher Lloyd, and Tim Meadows.
The Mandalorian Season 3 is expected to be released via Disney Plus on March 1, 2023. Stay tuned to ScreenGeek for additional updates on the fan-favorite Star Wars series and other such projects as we have them.
