While Pedro Pascal himself only very recently confirmed once more that a Mandalorian season 3 is happening – check out the very interesting 31 minute talk between Ewan McGregor (fresh off the set of Kenobi, beard and all) and Pedro Pascal hosted by Variety on YouTube for more – no one really knows when the show will return. Collider however have learned a few things about the reason for the delay and when we can expect to see season 3 of The Mandalorian. Click through for more details!
In the video with Ewan McGregor Pedro Pascal confirms that they haven’t started filming yet but that a Mandalorian season 3 is happening (and why wouldn’t it), but he couldn’t reveal all that much more of course.
Collider however have learned a few more details and also provide a few reasons why there won’t be a season 3 in 2021.
One major reason season 3 of The Mandalorian will not be released in 2021 is apparently the Kenobi show. The series uses the soundstage with the volume and production is supposed to last for quite some time still. Meanwhile The Book of Boba Fett has finished filming and is on schedule for a December 2021 release. And Collider have learned that The Book of Boba Fett will be something like a Mandalorian season 2.5 with various Mandalorian characters appearing on the show. Whether or not that includes Din Djarin is unknown, but The Book of Boba Fett won’t be so much its own thing and will instead be very much connected to The Mandalorian.
Another reason for the delay is Pedro Pascal’s commitment to the live action “Last of Us” series, based on the video game series, which begins filming this July. Pedro will portray Joel, so he’s one of the major stars of the series.
According to Collider filming for The Mandalorian season 3 will begin in late 2021 or maybe even early 2022. But it seems The Book of Boba Fett will make the wait for the next Mandalorian season not seem so long with strong Mandalorian connections.
