“The Mandalorian” and Baby Yoda are on their way back to our homes.
After premiering its first season in 2019, “The Mandalorian” became the most popular show to stream in the world. It stole the hearts of “Star Wars” fans who were hoping for something more grounded after the mixed reception of the new theatrical trilogy.
Since its release it has topped 60.5 million streams. Season one currently holds a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, both among critics and audience members. It also picked up 15 Primetime Emmy nominations, including ones for Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for Giancarlo Esposito and Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance for Taika Waititi.
Those eagerly awaiting the second season can expect to see Giancarlo Esposito and the Darksaber after Baby Yoda and his mysterious gift. We’ll also be treated to Rosario Dawson as the classic “Clone Wars” character, Ahsoka Tano and Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett.
In April, Variety reported that “The Mandalorian” had already been renewed for a third season. The “Star Wars” fandom never rests, but without a theatrically released film on Disney’s release calendar right now, “The Mandalorian” will have to scratch that itch.
