“Star Wars: Andor” showrunner Tony Gilroy was on hand at Disney’s Television Critics Association panel today to confirm something already expected – that the series will run for two seasons only.
He confirms the final scenes of the last episode of the second season will directly segue into the first scenes of the “Rogue One” film.
The first season’s twelve episodes will cover the span of a year in the Star Wars Universe, with the second season seeing four blocks of three episodes each and each of the blocks will span a year in the Star Wars Universe.
Discussing that structure, he says: “We really get to take the formative forging of Cassian Andor in the first 12 episodes and then we get to take that organism that we’ve built up and run it through the next four years in a really exciting narrative fashion.”
Talking about the production’s current status, he says the first season is essentially complete with the final mix for the season finale being finished up this week. Shooting on the second season begins in November.
“Star Wars: Andor” will debut September 21st on Disney+ with three episodes.
