Star Wars Resistance season 2 premiered in the US yesterday. In an attempt to boost awareness and maybe ratings for the series, the season 2 opening episode “Into The Unknown” is available on the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel, it’s not even geoblocked, so anyone should be able to access it.

A brand new trailer for the second season of Star Wars Resistance has been released today. Along with that comes the announcement that Resistance will also end after season 2. This is the official trailer description from the Star Wars YouTube channel:
The Emmy Award-nominated series Star Wars Resistance returns for its second and final season beginning Sunday, October 6 at 10:00 p.m. EDT/PDT on Disney Channel and in DisneyNOW, with subsequent airings on Disney XD. The concluding season takes place during the events of “The Last Jedi” leading up to “The Rise of Skywalker,” as Kaz and the team continue to fight against the threat of the First Order, culminating in an epic series finale.
In light of this it’s no surprise Hasbro no longer makes toys for the show. Also, ratings were very bad. Season 2 was probably greenlit / in production, long before season 1 even aired. In light of the ratings and lack of toy support it only makes sense for Disney to focus on something new. Of course, it may also be possible that Resistance was always supposed to be just a show with two seasons, but I find that unlikely, considering the costs developing the show and how animation usually works.
Watch the trailer by clicking the image below. It looks quite epic in places, with huge space battles. Kylo Ren makes a guest appearance even (not voiced by Adam Driver, it appears). As far as story arcs go: apparently the Colossus is in search of a new planet to call home, while the First Order can still track the Colossus. Kaz and friends don’t know how they can do that, but we know the answer already. Hyperspace tracking, of course. Let’s hope the Colossus won’t have any problem with its fuel supply as well. Leave your constructive thoughts in the comments!
The Star Wars Resistance panel was also held today at Star Wars Celebration Chicago. And while the livestream suddenly cut away from the panel, just as the the first episode of season 2 was about to be screened, we do have at least the poster to show you.
Apparently Tam will be a First Order cadet named DT-533 in season 2, which is supposed to pick up right after season 1 ended, with the Colossus in space and Tam with the First Order. Not much else is known at the moment, but more news will certainly leak. Will you follow season 2 of Resistance which will air later in 2019? I think season 1 was more or less entertaining, but had too many filler episodes in which nothing of consequence happened. Maybe things will pick up speed in season 2, now that the First Order is invading the galaxy and with the Colossus in space.
