What we know about season 2 of “Andor”

The live-action series of “Star Wars” have not had the reception that Disney Plus expected, with the exception of “The Mandalorians” and now, “Andore”. What was born as the spin-off of a spin-off with low expectations turned out to be a success. Given the the program came to an endNow fans of the world created by George Lucas are wondering if there will be a sequel.

the character of Cassian Andor, played by Mexican actor Diego Lunawas first introduced in the movie “Rogue One”which showed the work of the rebels to get death star blueprints which are given to Princess Leia in “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.”

Unlike disappointing series like “The Book of Bobba Fett” and “Obi-Wan Kenobi”the new series of the franchise has managed to capture the public with the journey that the protagonist must take to realizing the oppression of the Empire and the need to combat it.

Considering the place where they left some characters, a continuation is necessary and this was already confirmed. After the battle on Ferrix, instigated by Maarva’s (Fiona Shaw) hologram, Cassian saved Bix and decided to join Luthen in the rebellion. Before continuing, look here the trailer of “Andore”.

WHEN WILL “ANDOR” SEASON 2 PREMIERE?

Disney Plus has not yet confirmed a date for the second seasonbut we know that the recordings began at the end of November 2022 and this will last until August 2023.

Considering the time that the post-production of the first season took, we can estimate that “Andor” will premiere its second installment in the middle or end of 2024, at least.

In an interview with Tony Gilroy, the showrunner of the series, confirmed these suspicions.

If we take the reference past and do the same thing we did before, it will be on the same schedule. It will come out two years later”, affirmed the also creator and screenwriter. “The only time you can speed things up is in post-production and the only way to do that is with money, and the budget is tight”.

WHAT WILL SEASON 2 OF “ANDOR” BE ABOUT?

The script for season 2 of “Andor” is already complete, so we have received important advances about what will be told in the next season. Basically, will cover Cassian’s four years within the rebellion until the first events of “Rogue One”where the protagonist sacrificed himself on the planet Scarif to get the plans.

In an interview with Tony Gilroy, said that the context in the galaxy will be very different from the first installment, since at that time, the Empire was just showing its oppressive capacity and Cassian Andor went through a process of becoming a rebel after suffering various injustices. .

The next four years (of history) are not about becoming a revolutionary. Is about learn to be a leader and how difficult it is to put together the alliance and what happens to the people who are the original gangsters in front of the establishment and many other different topics”, he detailed.

As we could see, the rebellion is still very fragmented by the end of the first season. Also, there will be a time jump of one year every three episodesalthough they assure that this does not mean that they will lose detail.

What becomes interesting is that now we can play negative space. When you jump a year, what happened in between? You know the people, you know what their trajectory was. it’s energizing”, he added to the magazine. “People grow up, get tired, betray each other. People change their minds, get weak and go crazy”.

The connection to the main events of “Star Wars” will also be greatersince they must connect it with the first film made by George Lucas, where the rebels already had a base on Yavin 4.

WHO WILL BE PART OF SEASON 2 OF “ANDOR”?

Although nothing is confirmed, it is most likely that Most of the cast will return for season 2 of “Andor”. Of course, Diego Luna will return in his role as Cassian Andor and everything indicates that the members of the rebel group of Luthen Rael (Stellan Skarsgard) also appear. Especially considering the strain in the relationship between Vel (Faye Marsay) and Cinta (Varada Sethu) at the end of episode 12.

Mon Monthma (Genevieve O’Reilly) will continue to be an important character in the resistance, from what we know of “Rebels” and other franchise productions. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see her in her bow on Coruscant, especially now that she’s framing her husband for the money missing from her bank account.

Of course, the villains will return in season two as well, especially considering that Syril Karn (Kyle Soller) saved Dedra Meero (Denise Goug). This could translate to Syril receiving a position within the Empire as a reward and Meero is reprimanded for her failure at the time of capturing Andor and the Nexus.

Secondly, we’re not sure cassian’s friends will show up again, despite the fact that the character said goodbye to Bix Caleen (Adria Arjona), Brasso (Joplin Sibtain) and the B2EMO droid, promising to find them again. Since Andor passes away in Rogue One, we’re not sure if he’ll make it through to his promise before then.

Who won’t appear, unless it’s in a scene from the past, will be the characters who have passed away like Maarva (Fiona Shaw)Nemik (Alex Lawther), Timm Karlo (James McArdle) and Skeen (Ebon Moss-Bachrach).
