The Mandalorian - Jon Favreau Reveals He's Writing and Working on Season 2

Jon Favreau has revealed that he has started working on The Mandalorian Season 2, "we're done with the first season and I was actually writing part of the second season now, so I'm having a blast."

Favreau is penning the series plus executive producing alongside Dave Filoni, who will be directing the first episode. Deborah Chow, Taika Waititi, Rick Famuyiwa, and Bryce Dallas Howard are also directing episodes for Season 1 which stars Pedro Pascal.

"It's about a bounty hunter, it's after Return of the Jedi so the Empire's gone and all hell's breaking loose in the outer rim and it's about the scum and villainy, that now once you take out the rule of law – what happens? Chaos takes over and you have a lot of the unseemly characters. It's kinda like, ya know when you meet Han Solo at the beginning of Star Wars: A New Hope."

"I keep getting pulled deeper into the orbit of Disney, but fortunately the stuff that Disney's working on is the stuff that I love. I wanted to do a Star Wars TV show like The Mandalorian and pitched it to them and they were very open to it. I even wrote four episodes before I even was hired to do it because I was excited as a fan to see what these stories might be and see if they were interested in doing what I was interested in, which they were. And I was actually writing Season 2 this morning before I came here."
