The Mandalorian’s third season doesn’t arrive until February of next year, but Jon Favreau says he’s already begun writing for the fourth season. Favreau spoke with Cinema Blend at Star Wars Celebration and noted that he’s begun work on the as-yet-ungreenlit fourth season.

Favreau talked about how the Disney+ Star Wars shows coordinate their different storylines, saying, “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 Season 4. It becomes more precise. I think that inevitably, no matter how simple you start, the story threads start to connect and weave and overlap, 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.’”

The show recently finished production of season three, which premieres on Disney+ in February 2023. Pedro Pascal, Carl Weathers and Giancarlo Esposito are all confirmed to return for season three, with Christopher Lloyd guest-starring.
