With the writer’s strike now in its third week, the ripple effects are starting to impact upcoming projects. According to Deadline, the strike is now set to disrupt the production of the fourth season of the Disney+ Original series, “Star Wars: The Mandalorian”.

Filming is due to begin on the fourth season in September, so there is still plenty of time for the writer’s strike to be resolved by then. However, filming is likely to be delayed.

The shows creator, Jon Favreau, said earlier this year that he was already working on scripts for a fourth season, likely due to the impending threat of a writer’s strike. Many scripts were being worked on in advance, to prepare for this situation. However, with the writer’s strike, no writers can be present on the set, so this might cause problems, similar to what’s happened to “Andor’s” writer and showrunner, Tony Gilroy, who has said that he has suspended work on the second season, which is filming in the UK now.

The third season of “The Mandalorian” has only recently finished being released on Disney+, and there are a few more Star Wars shows either in post-production or being filmed, including, “Skeleton Crew”, “Ahsoka”, “The Acolyte” and the second season of “Andor”. So, Disney, has enough Star Wars live-action shows to feed to Disney+ during 2023 and 2024. Plus it has the third season of the animated show, “The Bad Batch” coming in 2024!

The show tells the stories of the journeys of the Mandalorian through the Star Wars galaxy. Once a lone bounty hunter, Din Djarin has reunited with Grogu. Meanwhile, the New Republic struggles to lead the galaxy away from its dark history. The Mandalorian will cross paths with old allies and make new enemies as he and Grogu continue their journey together. The previous three seasons of “The Mandalorian” are available to stream now on Disney+.
