One of the first original series announced for Disney+ was a brand new Star Wars series following Captain Cassian Andor, who was first introduced in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”. The first season of “Andor” is coming to Disney+ later this year, and unlike “The Mandalorian”, will have a much longer season of twelve episodes.
“Andor”, is a tense, nail-biting spy thriller created by Tony Gilroy and will see Diego Luna, reprising the role of rebel spy Cassian Andor. He will be joined by Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller and Genevieve O’Reilly, who will be returning as Mon Mothma.
Earlier this year, Stellan Skarsgard confirmed that “Andor” will be receiving a second season and revealed that he would be filming a second season this fall.
According to Making Star Wars, Lucasfilm is going to be returning to England’s Elstree Studios to begin production on the second season of “Andor” in November 2022. And that they are devoting “18 months for this production.”
Following on from this “Andor’s” director of photography, Adriano Goldman, has revealed to TVCultura.
“The series I worked on was supposed to be five seasons long, but I think it’s not happening. It will now have three maybe.”
If filming is being scheduled for 18 months, these seasons will likely be filmed back to back. This shows Disney has lots of faith in the series.
“Andor” is set five years before the events of “Rogue One”, so the multiple seasons, should help fill in that time period for the Rebellion preparing for its battle with the Empire in “A New Hope”.
