The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan Kenobi may have delved deeper into Star Wars lore than Andor did, yet the series starring Adria Arjona still soared to impressive heights of critical adoration upon its 2022 premiere on Disney+. And it seems the stars align with the promise of the second season, especially with the recent tempting hints dropped by Arjona, our very own Bix Caleen.

Now, as we eagerly await the next season, Adria Arjona is teasing fans with hints of what to expect. In a recent interview with the NY Times, the Puerto Rican actress, 32, who plays mechanic Bix Caleen in the series, has spoken highly of the upcoming season, promising that it will be even bigger and “smarter” than the first. In her words:

Season 2 of ‘Andor’ is coming out hopefully next year. I think people are going to freak when they see it. It’s so much bigger, smarter — Tony [Gilroy, the showrunner] really outdid himself.

In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar earlier this month, she echoed similar sentiments, saying:

I’m so scared to talk about Andor, but all I can say is that this second season is just so much bigger and smarter – and it even surprised me.

Also, according to her conversation with Collider, Andor season 2 will be unlike anything she has ever “done” in terms of story structure for a show: 

In between every three episodes, there’s a year, and then there’s three more episodes, then a year, and then three more. So, you’re seeing the evolution of these characters through such a large span of time, and I’ve never done that.

Well, the way she is giving all that hype about the sequel, it seems to be not just a fitting coda to the spy-thriller saga but an unparalleled addition to the Star Wars chronicles.

Delving Deeper: Tony Gilroy’s Reflections on Andor 2

I’ve been on Andor for five years now. We’re finishing the second half. I’ve had a lot of fun over the years, but I don’t know whether I’ve ever done anything as important as these 24 hours of storytelling we’re doing now.

Based on the description painted by the cast and crew, it’s no wonder that the season of Andor is being forged into something truly exceptional.

The promise of deeper story arcs and unparalleled character development is just over the horizon, and with each passing day, the force of excitement grows stronger. Even though the specifics of the plot are still unknown, this news about Andor season 2’s inventive narrative structure makes it seem like a thrilling conclusion to the Star Wars series.
