Ahead of the Disney+ series premiere, Andor showrunner Tony Gilroy estimates when Season 2 of the Star Wars prequel series will release.
Showrunner Tony Gilroy teases Andor the release of season 2 a few days before the star wars show premieres on Disney+. Best known for his work on the Thick headed franchise, Gilroy first joined the star wars universe in 2016 when he was added as a co-writer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Storythe prequel film set before Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. In 2018, Lucasfilm announced the development of a prequel television series following Diego Luna. A thug Cassian Andor character. Gilroy would lead the series as showrunner.
Andor stars Luna, Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller and Fiona Shaw. It follows Cassian in the five years preceding the events of Thug A. The complete story will unfold over two seasons of twelve episodes, as Andor traces Cassian’s journey from lone thief to spy devoted to the rebellion. star wars the fans waited patiently Andorsince the series was announced, but even with Andor season 1 is fast approaching, some are already anticipating season 2.
Andor writer and showrunner Gilroy now speaks with The envelope to discuss the new star wars To display. The conversation turns to Gilroy’s future plans when he reveals how long he will be working on Andor. This gives a tentative idea of when audiences can expect season 2 to arrive. Check out Gilroy’s full comments below:
“As suspicious as my community involvement is, when I’m done, I’ll have my hands on 26 hours of ‘Star Wars’ content. I’ll be a gamer by the time we’re done. I’m the one who stay right now. I think that’s the title. I’ve got two more years ahead of me. We start filming in November on part 2. And I don’t know if… Our past pattern was two years, but I mean, I’ll be sure… We’ll be shooting from November to August And then our article[-production] the last time was about a year.
Added all together, Gilroy’s estimates would place Andor Season 2 release Fall 2024 at the earliest. This news should be a bit of a relief for star wars fans because even though there is a long period between Andor seasons 1 and 2, at least Gilroy can name a specific timeline for the release. Can’t say the same for others star wars projects, such as the still unnamed film by Taika Waititi or that of Patty Jenkin Thieves Squadron, which was recently removed from Disney’s release schedule. In that sense, it’s good that Gilroy is considering”stick around” to finish Andor season 2 and give star wars fans something certain to look forward to after The Mandalorian season 3 will be released next year.
Of course, Gilroy’s timing could be off. Disney has yet to announce a tentative premiere for Andor season 2, so the release date could come even later than Gilroy’s estimate. After all, in the midst of a global pandemic, the TV and film industry has grown accustomed to unexpected delays, and anything can happen in two years. Yet instead of waiting until 2024, viewers can watch Andor season 1 when it premieres this week on Disney+.
