In November, the final episode from the first season of “Star Wars: Andor” was released on Disney+, a series set five years before the events of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and focuses on Cassian Andor and his journey toward becoming a rebel hero. The tale is set against the backdrop of a burgeoning rebellion against a ruthless Empire, where people and planets are drawn into a conflict that will have far-reaching effects across the galaxy. It’s an era filled with danger, deception and intrigue, and one that will test the courage and resolve of a reluctant hero determined to make a difference.

Diego Luna returned as Cassian Andor for the show and was joined by cast members Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, Fiona Shaw, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis. The executive producers on the show include Kathleen Kennedy, Tony Gilroy, Sanne Wohlenberg, Diego Luna and Michelle Rejwan. Tony Gilroy is also the creator and showrunner.

The good news is that Disney has already announced that the show will be returning for a second season, and production is already underway in the United Kingdom, as during a recent interview, the show’s creator Tony Gilroy confirmed to Collider,  that production started on Monday 21st November 2022, as he explained that he would be flying out to London to be there for the first shot of the season, before turning around and coming back home for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Tony Gilroy also explained in an interview with The Wrap that it’s going to be a couple of years until it hits our screens.

“We start shooting in November on part two. Our past pattern was two years… We’ll shoot from November to August, and then our post[-production] last time was about a year”

The second season will once again consist of twelve episodes, but there will be some differences with the second season, with a change in format, with the season being split into four blocks.  Unfortunately, there will be only one more season of “Andor”, as each block will have three episodes covering a single a year.  So the entire second season will cover Cassian’s story from the events of the first series until the events of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.  And each block will be directed by different directors, including Ariel Kleiman, Janus Metz, and Alonso Ruizpalacios.

Tony Gilroy teased the second season of “Andor” in an interview with Rolling Stone:

“The first year is really about him becoming, and the last line of this tranche of 12 episodes will sum up where we’ve been trying to get to. And we come back a year later. It’ll be very different.   The next four years [of story] are not about becoming a revolutionary. They’re about learning to be a leader and how difficult it is to put the alliance together and what happens to people who are the original gangsters versus the establishment and a lot of different other issues.”

With filming underway until the summer of 2023 and post-production set to take a year, the second season is unlikely to arrive on Disney+ until late 2024, possibly even 2025, if there are delays in post-production or filming.

We probably won’t see anything about the second season of “Andor” for a while, but at least we know that the show is coming back for another twelve episodes.

The entire first season of “Andor” , along with “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is available to stream now on Disney+.
