WWE star Sasha Banks made a fan-pleasing appearance in The Mandalorian during Season 2, but will we be seeing any more of her?

After months of speculation, Banks finally made her debut on the Disney+ series in Chapter 11, which aired this November. Her character, Koska Reeves, was revealed to be a Mandalorian working alongside Clone Wars character Bo-Katan Kryze, who was brought to life by Katee Sackhoff.

Banks’ addition to the show was well-received by fans of both Star Wars and WWE, but she also didn’t get that much screen time or dialogue. So naturally, viewers have been wondering if that’s the last we’ll see of her character Koska, or if she’ll return for more in the future.

Will Sasha Banks return to The Mandalorian?

Well, that question has now been answered, and it’s bad news for Banks fans. The wrestler-turned-actor confirmed in a new interview with ComicBook that she only signed on for one episode – but also shared her hopes that Koska and Bo-Katan will claim the Darksaber in a future season.

“I’m only in this episode,” she revealed. “It’s awesome, but we can only hope for more stuff. So, if I can pray and manifest anything, I just hope myself and Katee, Bo-Katan, can hopefully get the Darksaber one day. But we’ll have to see, I don’t know.”


Unsurprisingly, Banks kept her lips sealed when it came to teasers about where the show is heading. Either she genuinely doesn’t know like us, or she’s very good at keeping secrets.

“I have no idea, we have to keep watching,” she said. “Everyone was expecting Ahsoka to be on this episode but we have to see, I don’t know. I’m watching like a fan every single week and I’m just on the edge of my seat, I’m like, I don’t know. So I’m just with you guys, I’m a fan.”

Speaking of Ahsoka Tano, many fans have been speculating what will happen when she finally appears on The Mandalorian, and what that could mean for the adorable Baby Yoda – a new theory suggests he has a surprising fate, one that’s different than viewers were expecting.
