How many seasons of Andor will there be? The Star Wars prequel just reached the end of its first season, but how many seasons of Andor can fans expect on Disney+?
Season 1 came to a close today with an emotional, rousing finale that’ll leave you dying for more. You can read our review here, our breakdown of the ending here, and find out about the post-credit scene here.
Unlike past Star Wars shows which can theoretically continue indefinitely, Andor has a ticking clock – so, how many seasons of it will there be?
How many seasons of Andor will there be?
Andor will have two seasons on Disney+.
Much like the first season, there will be 12 episodes in Season 2. While the first season takes place over the course of a year, Season 2 will chronicle four years of Cassian’s life and missions.
Speaking to The Playlist, showrunner Tony Gilroy explained: “And what’s really cool, when we come back for part two, we’re going to jump a year, and we’re going to come back.
“It’s a year later, and all this sh*t’s happened, but we’re going to come back for a Friday, Saturday, and a Sunday, and then we’re going to jump a year.
“Then we’re going to do like five, six, seven days and jump a year, and then we’re going to do two weeks and jump a year. And the final block that we come back to is going to be the last five days before Rogue One.”
When is the Andor Season 2 release date?
Andor Season 2 is expected to release in late 2024, according to showrunner Tony Gilroy.
In an interview with The Wrap, he said they’re expecting to start shooting on Season 2 in November this year, and production is expected to stretch from November to August 2023.
“And then our post[-production] last time was about a year,” he added, meaning it’s unlikely we’ll see Andor Season 2 before fall 2024.
In an interview with Collider, Gilroy revealed filming was beginning this week, but it’s not set to wrap up until August 2023. So, the likelihood of Season 2 dropping before 2023 is low – unless it received a huge cash injection.
“The only place you can accelerate the processes is in post, and the only way you can accelerate in post is with money, and money is tight,” he said.
“So, I don’t really know, there would have to be some serious motivation next May or June or something. Someone would have to say, ‘Wow, we really need this, and we’re willing to pay X.’
“Rogue One proved, if you throw money at it, you can do post really, really fast. It’s just very, very, very expensive.”
