Sometimes TV series creators outline a set number of seasons for their shows. They may not know an exact trajectory, but they have an end point in mind. Knowing the endpoint means it’s likely they have an idea of how to get there. That, in turn, helps determine how long it might take to tell the story. This isn’t the case for every TV series, or even most of them. And it doesn’t apply to The Mandalorian. In a recent interview with the Inside Total Film podcast, The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau said he doesn’t have a particular ending in mind for the live-action Star Wars series.
The interview, which we first learned about from Variety, looks ahead to season three of The Mandalorian. Since Favreau recently shared that he’s already written season four, Inside Total Film asked him if the show was “getting close to an endpoint” and if Favreau had an ending in mind. Favreau replied:
No, I don’t – I think the beauty of this is that it’s a middle chapter of a much larger story. And though we’ll have resolution over time with these characters, I think that how these characters fit into the larger scope and scale, but it’s not like there’s a finale that we’re building to that I have in mind. Quite the contrary, I love for these stories to go on and on. And so these characters potentially could be with us for a while, and I really love telling stories in their voice, and I love the way the adventures unfold and I’m looking forward to doing much more.
So if you’re in love with Grogu and Din Djarin and their journey, it sounds like you have plenty more to come.
The Mandalorian season three premieres on Disney+ on March 1.
