The Mandalorian Season 4 Is Already in the Works

The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau has confirmed that Season 4 of the Star Wars series is already in development, even though the third season won’t arrive until 2023.

Speaking to CinemaBlend at Star Wars Celebration, Favreau indicated that he has started writing the scripts for the fourth season of The Mandalorian. The producer was sharing his love for the television format and the growing number of shows that will be coming from the galaxy far, far away when he touched on how those projects are affecting his writing process.

“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,” Favreau said, highlighting the benefits of episodic TV. “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 – how should I put it – more precise.”

The third season of the popular Star Wars series is slated to be released in February 2023, and it is expected to continue the story of Din Djarin and Grogu following their reunion in The Book of Boba Fett. Favreau explained how the connection between these two series’ creates a “very fertile ground for imagination,” with many more considerations to factor in.

“When I was writing the first season of Mandalorian, I could do anything, set it anywhere,” he admitted. “Now we have to figure out why there are certain Mandalorians who wear helmets, certain ones who don’t wear helmets, what’s happening on Mandalore, what’s Bo-Katan doing at the time? How does she feel about that? Where is the Darksaber ?”
