ATTENTION THE FOLLOWING STORY IS A RUMOR AND MUST BE TAKEN WITH A GRAIN OF SALT
The Mandalorian has become one of the most popular shows of Disney’s Disney Plus streaming service. It brought back many Star Wars fans who were turned off by the recent “Disney Trilogy/”. The show was overall handled by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni who have been rumored to be next in line to head Lucasfilm. But according to a recent report the show will potentially be ending after only 3 Seasons.
According to a new report from StarWarsOnly the series is set to end after Season 3 with the production crew moving onto the Ahsoka Series and Rangers of the New Republic, which has apparently been in flux.

This decision was most likely made during the filming of Season 2 as Lucasfilm is expanding their output when it comes to Disney Plus content. As of right now we only know about the announced shows but no films besides Patty Jenkins’ Rogue Squadron for 2023. But this is not the only new information to come out.
Another reported rumor says that one of the factors leading to the decision to end the show is that Jon Favreau is reportedly angry with actor Pedro Pascal over his availability as the actor accepted the role of Joel in the upcoming HBO The Last of Us series which cuts into the shooting schedule for The Mandalorian. Due to this there may be possibility of Pedro’s character being played by a body double on screen wearing the helmet and him coming back to do dub work to finish off the show.
Remember that these are all just rumors, so when Lucasfilm reveals new details on Mando Season 3 we may find out if this will indeed be the final season.
