Giancarlo Esposito teased the return of Moff Gideon to The Mandalorian in a recent interview on the Jimmy Kimmel Live!. He talked about his character’s return for the third season of the Star Wars show saying “the odds are good.” He also shared, however, that he wasn’t sure when the character would actually show up. It had been so long since he filmed it that he couldn’t remember when Moff Gideon returned.
“The odds are good you’re going to see me soon. That’s all I can say,” Esposito teased. “The show is just a fantastic show to be on. They want the audience to be in anticipation, and wonder, and joy, and excitement. I did it so long ago that — I’ve got to be honest with you — I can’t even remember. I don’t remember when I’m on.”
