Star Wars Andor Series Confirms Second Season With Episode Count

The annual Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim has officially begun, and it launched with some huge news. The eagerly awaited Star Wars prequel series Andor is still coming this year, despite no substantial news in recent months. When it is launched, however, it will be considerably more distinct than any other Disney+ original that has been developed thus far. Here’s all you need to know about the show:

A lot of details about Star Wars: Andor have been released. Andor Season 1 has a release date, as well as the number of episodes in the first and second seasons, as per Disney+. Andor creator Tony Gilroy said 12 episodes were filmed for Season 1 of the show at Star Wars Celebration 2022 in Anaheim, California. Gilroy will show up later this year to film additional 12 episodes for Season 2. Furthermore, Disney+ has announced that Andor will release on August 31 with a two-episode launch. The first season will take place five years before the start of Rogue One. The second will subsequently span the next four years, closing in a scene that directly connects to the movie.

The first teaser for Andor transports fans back to the time before Diego Luna’s portrayal of Cassian Andor in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in 2016. Tragically, we all know what happened to Andor and Jyn Erso after they finished stealing the schematics for the Empire’s first Death Star. However, with Andor starring in his own Disney+ series, viewers can expect to spend longer with the protagonist over the course of several seasons.

In a conversation with Vanity Fair, Tony Gilroy, who collaborated on Rogue One and is now in the lead of Andor, discussed what type of narrative this new show will depict. It covers Cassian’s life a few years prior to when we encounter him in Rogue One, revealing how the Empire is transforming the universe and how he gets active in the resistance, according to the director.

Diego told THR how intriguing it is to share a story despite already knowing the outcome. He argued that approaching a subject like this in this manner invariably leads to a deeper level of thought. Once you know Cassian’s potential, there’s much promise for development, which is something Diego is very excited about. He also explained to viewers that because it is a series, he has a lot of time to dig deeper. “Rogue One was a story of regular people. It was regular people doing incredible things. In a way, it’s a film that reminds us of the power we all have if we have a conviction. So, yeah, I feel blessed to have the chance to revisit this role,” Luna added.
