THE Mandalorian will officially be coming back to Disney+ for a second season in 2020.

Showrunner and creator Jon Favreau confirmed the renewal via Twitter, saying that the second instalment is slated to debut in Fall [Autumn] 2020.

Favreau has already teased as much, hinting that work on the sophomore run of the hugely popular Star Wars spin-off series was already underway.

But he has also now confirmed that Carl Weathers, who plays Greef Carga in the series, is set to direct an episode.

Favreau’s Tweet also confirmed a possible future direction for the next run of episodes, by featuring a Gamorrean – a pig-lizard species which guarded Jabba the Hut in earlier Star Wars films.

This has already prompted much speculation that season two might explore their native planet of Gamorr, or perhaps even venture into Jabba’s palace on Tatooine.

The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal as the titular bounty hunter, Gina Carano as his ally Cara Dune, and Carl Weathers as the shifty bounty hunter boss Greef Carga. It also features Baby Yoda, a character that has become an online sensation.

The story is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order, following the adventures of Mando in the outer reaches of the galaxy as he tries to protect his unexpected charge, Baby Yoda, from the clutches of the emerging First Order.

The series marks the first Star Wars related programme to air on Disney+, although two others are in the works: a Cassian Andor series starring Diego Luna reprising his role from Rogue One, and an Obi-Wan Kenobi series with Ewan McGregor reprising the iconic role he took on in the first Star Wars prequels.
