The latest season of the hit Star Wars Disney+ series The Mandalorian has wrapped filming this week.
The news initially came from a costume designer on Instagram in a since deleted post telling their followers that work has begun to wind down on the highly anticipated third season, which will again follow Din Djarin and his adopted son, Grogu, after they were reunited in the finale of The Book of Boba Fett. The two were separated in The Mandalorian: Chapter 16 – The Rescue when Luke Skywalker himself made a shocking cameo to save the heroes from Moff Gideon’s Imperial remnant and take the young child away to begin his Jedi training.
Since that post, Carl Weather confirmed the news on Twitter:
Weathers is a regular of The Mandalorian, having appeared in the pilot episode and both seasons of the show more broadly. His character, Greef Karga, was once Djarin’s superior of sorts when he worked as a bounty hunter, but has since become the bonafide mayor of the town and improving the lives of the citizens in the area, as shown in season 2. Weathers also directed an episode of the show’s second outing.
The Mandalorian is as of now without a release date, but fans speculate that it could come in the fall or winter of 2022. Until then, there’s plenty of other Star Wars shows to look forward to, including The Bad Batch season 2, Andor, and Obi-Wan Kenobi, which is set to release on May 25.
