When Disney+ was officially revealed during a quarterly investors call back in 2018, one of the first shows announced as “Star Wars: Andor”, which is a tense nail-biting spy thriller created by Tony Gilroy and is set to arrive on Disney+ in 2022.
Diego Luna is reprising the role of rebel spy Cassian Andor from “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” will be joined by a fantastic new cast that includes Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller and Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma.
Shortly after the series was announced, actor Alan Tudky teased that he would be returning to the role of the droid, K-2SO in the series.
However, during a recent interview with Collider, while he was promoting his new Syfy series Resident Alien, he said:
“They’re shooting it right now, I’m not in it. But, if it stays on the air, stories keep getting told, I’ll end up in there,”
He went on to add:
“I’m going to be in the show. It’s just that the story that Tony [Gilroy] is telling doesn’t involve K-2SO until later on… I can’t be too specific, but I can definitely say that I’m not going to be in the first season.”
This confirmation that he is not returning for the first season of the new “Andor” series is no doubt a blow for K-2SO fans, but hopefully, the series is picked up for further seasons to bring the character in.
