The first season of Andor hasn’t finished yet but the second is already in the works. The show, which stars Diego Luna and was created by Tony Gilroy, has a date to start filming its second season and it is soon. In an interview with Collider, Gilroy shared that they are preparing to start filming the second season starting in November. In fact, he said that it would be “the Monday before Thanksgiving,” on November 21, 2022.
The show is set to be two seasons long. The first season takes place over the course of one year through its 12 episodes. The second season will also have 12 episodes and cover the following four years. Gilroy shared that the second season will be broken into “four blocks of three [episodes]” with “each block” representing “another year closer.”
“We really get to take the formative forging of Cassian Andor in the first 12 episodes and then we get to take that organism that we’ve built up and run it through the next four years in a really exciting narrative fashion,” he added. Gilroy also hinted that the final episode of the second season would “walk the audience directly into the first scenes of Rogue One.”
Andor has given a different perspective to the world of Star Wars as it explores the development of the Rebellion against the Empire. It does this through the lens of Cassian Andor’s journey from being a thief to discovering how he can be someone who makes a difference in a cause bigger than himself. Along the way, the way both the Empire and Rebellion operates is explored. New episodes of Andor are currently being released on Wednesdays on Disney+.
