‘The Mandalorian’ Season 4 Confirmed, Will Tie Closely With ‘Ahsoka’

Lucasfilm revealed during Star Wars Celebration when we can expect The Mandalorian season 3, and while the wait for February 2023 is a long one, there is a bright side. We know that Mando and Grogu will get a season four.

Jon Favreau confirmed to CinemaBlend that writing on season four has already started…

“With television, we’re very lucky that we don’t have to rush things through into an hour-and-a-half, two hours. 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. It becomes more precise.”

Favreau’s comments are interesting, because this is, I think, the firmest confirmation that events in Ahsoka will directly impact The Mandalorian. He had more to say on the way the Star Wars live-action shows will intersect…

“I think that inevitably, no matter how simple you start, the story threads start to connect and weave and overlap,” Favreau added. “And with Dave Filoni’s deep understanding of everything around the time period, opportunities will always arise when we have story meetings and conversations about, ‘Well, you know what character would be here now.'”
