The Mandalorian Season 4: Everything we know

Here’s everything we know so far about The Mandalorian Season 4, including any possible release date information and updates, cast, plot speculation, and more.

The Mandalorian Season 3 finale is now behind us, closing out this larger chapter of Din and Grogu’s story ahead of Dave Filoni’s next wave of Star Wars TV. A wave that began with 2023’s Ahsoka and appears set to lead into his Heir to the Empire movie.

Picking up after the tear-jerking Season 2 closer – and those episodes in The Book of Boba Fett – we’ve followed the galaxy far, far away’s cutest father-and-son duo as they helped Bo-Katan retake Mandalore and liberate it from Moff Gideon and the Empire.

Though with three seasons now in the books, what lies next for the beloved Mando and his adopted child? Better yet, is Season 4 even that, or should fans expect it to be replaced by the newly announced feature film? Here’s what we know thus far.

Will there be a The Mandalorian Season 4?

Technically, yes, The Mandalorian Season 4 has already been confirmed. Though it’s yet unclear if the original plans for Season 4 have now evolved into the feature-length ‘The Mandalorian & Grogu’ film set to release in theaters.

In 2022, showrunner Jon Favreau told CinemaBlend he was already working on a fourth season at the time. “With television, we’re very lucky that we don’t have to rush things through into an hour-and-a-half, two hours,” he said.

“We get to tell stories slowly. So now, as Dave [Filoni]’s doing Ahsoka, it’s very much informing the writing that I’m doing for [The Mandalorian] Season 4.”

Is The Mandalorian Season 4 actually a movie?

Currently, it’s unclear exactly what shape Mando Season 4 may take, be it another set of episode on Disney+, or a feature-length film.

Following rumors of a much bigger project replacing Season 4, it was announced in January 2024 that there is in fact a film in the works. The Mandalorian & Grogu is set to enter production this year with plans to then boast a full cinematic release in theaters worldwide.

However, earlier comments seem to imply Season 4 was actually written in an episodic format, perhaps indicating Season 4 may lead into the aforementioned feature-length film.

Favreau told BFMTV: “Season 4? Yeah, I’ve written it already. We have to know where we’re going to tell a fully formed story, so we had mapped it out, Dave and I, and then slowly you just write each episode. So I was writing during post-production, because all of it has to feel like a continuation and one full story.”

For now, it’s simply guesswork until Disney clarifies its plans with the franchise moving forward.

Is there a The Mandalorian Season 4 release date?

The Mandalorian Season 4 doesn’t have a release date, but we’d expect it to arrive sometime in 2024.

The show’s debut season premiered in 2019, with the second season dropping on Disney+ a year later. Global restrictions got in the way of Season 3, resulting in a three-year gap until its release.

The first two seasons hit our screens in October/November time, so we’d expect the same this year for The Mandalorian, given the Star Wars slate on the horizon: Skeleton Crew, Andor Season 2, and The Acolyte.

However, there’s a good chance the show will be delayed as a result of the writer’s strike in 2023. According to Deadline, filming was originally set to begin in September last year, but plans were obviously pushed back.

The Mandalorian Season 4 cast: Who’ll be in it?

Pedro Pascal would almost definitely return as Din Djarin in The Mandalorian Season 4.

As for others – with the exception of his adopted child, Grogu – we don’t know. The Season 3 finale was essentially a reset for Din, so we may see him interacting with a host of strange, dangerous new characters across the galaxy.

For now, we’d expect the following people to return in The Mandalorian Season 4 cast:

  • Carl Weathers as Greef Karga
  • Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan Kryze
  • Emily Swallow as The Armorer
  • Taika Waititi as IG-11

Giancarlo Esposito reprised his role as Moff Gideon, but he appeared to meet a fiery end in the finalealthough he was working on clones, so there’s definitely scope for him to come back. There’s also the small matter of Thrawn, the inbound Legends villain who’ll make his live-action debut in Ahsoka.

The Mandalorian Season 4 plot: What will it be about?

While there aren’t official plot details for The Mandalorian Season 4 right now, we’re expecting to see Din and Grogu working together on bounty-hunting adventures in the lead-up to their jump to the big screen with ‘The Mandalorian & Grogu’.

The Season 3 finale gave our heroes a happy ending. Din and Grogu are now living in Nevarro, ready to embark on freelance missions for the New Republic, and Bo-Katan and The Armorer have liberated Mandalore from the Empire.

We may be in peacetime now, but Grand Admiral Thrawn is coming, as is Dave Filoni’s Mando-verse movie, which will tie all of the live-action shows together for a big-screen conclusion.

The executive producer, who’ll be directing the film, told Variety: “On a base level, I would just say the coming conflict, the growing idea that the Empire wasn’t as defeated as a lot of people want to believe and that the remnant is out there.

“We saw that from the very beginning with The Mandalorian and how Gideon was plotting. There are always people that are willing to undermine something that the Republic is trying to build and put back on its feet.

“I grew up with a lot of stories in the expanding universe that were exploring what happened after Return of the Jedi. There has been this, for fans, idea that there was a new Republic and a remnant Empire and the conflict persisted after Return of the Jedi, even though the heroes won and were more in control.

“What did that control look like? And since Force Awakens is 30 years on out from Return of the Jedi, we have room then to tell another story. That’s what I’m coalescing into this time period.”

Is The Mandalorian Season 4 trailer out?

No, there’s no trailer for The Mandalorian Season 4 right now. It’s still in development, but we’ll update this space upon the release of any footage.
