If there’s one thing that keeps me ever so delicately still holding on to my ability to care about Disney’s version of Star Wars, it’s The Mandalorian. But, for all the fanservice stuff, I can put all that aside because the journey of Din Djarin and Lil’ Smackums (Grogu) is something that’s grown on me. So, when can we see the third season of the Disney+ show?

Via Tech Radar, we learned that while speaking on The Rich Eisen Show, Moff Gideon himself, Giancarlo Esposito, mentioned that the show would be coming sooner rather than later. When asked by Rich about when he could expect more Mandalorian, the man who plays the Imperial tyrant stated:

“You’ll get it soon. I’ve got … a few things to do in regard to that, some finishing touches on what I do. Uh, but I believe it will be sometime this Summer.”

Esposito was very quick to clarify the fluidity of that statement:

“No date set yet, but coming soon.”

OK, that could mean anything since the Summer starts in June and runs through August. However, considering filming wrapped on this next season only just recently, I’d say we’ll probably be waiting until right up to September for new episodes.

Just how much screentime Moff Gideon has left is anyone’s guess. We know he is now in New Republic custody, which could mean we will be seeing interrogation scenes or maybe a possible jailbreak with the help of Thrawn to help further tie the timeline into the upcoming Ahsoka Tano series.

Check out Esposito’s appearance on The Rich Eisen Show below.
