The Mandalorian was the first must-see hit for Disney+, and who knows how many subscribers it brought to the streamer all by itself. Season 2 proved to be amazing, as well, introducing Ahsoka Tano into the live-action realm, seeing the return of Boba Fett, and of course who can forget that moment when Luke Skywalker arrived to take Grogu under his wing. All of that, and Din Djarin took his rightful place as holder of the Darksaber. A lot of plot threads have been set in motion,but a new rumor says there may only be one last season to wrap them up.
Take this with a grain of salt, but StarWarsOnly says it has learned The Mandalorian will end with season 3 when it arrives in 2022. With so many storylines still hanging out there, would that mean The Book of Boba Fett, which has been described as The Mandalorian 2.5, is where some of those will be wrapped up?
On the one hand, it’s surprising that Disney would let such a hugely important show end this early. The amount they’re making on Baby Yoda merchandise must be astronomical. But then again, that can and will continue long after the series is finished.
On the other hand, The Mandalorian‘s premise doesn’t seem built for the long haul, but to get from point A to point B. With the Darksaber now in Djarin’s possession, this third season will definitely take him to Mandalore to fight alongside his fellow Mandalorians.
With so many Star Wars shows on the way, such as Ahsoka, Andor, and Obi-Wan Kenobi, perhaps Disney/Lucasfilm are trying not to oversaturate the streaming space?
