This development should not be surprising due to the recent accolades of The Mandalorian in the past few days. While the lack of Star Wars content in the past months might’ve helped build hype for The Mandalorian, it’s clear that the unique narrative and compelling dynamic of the show’s runaway duo were the main reason behind the anticipation of fans.
Based on a survey from Rotten Tomatoes, it was revealed that The Mandalorian is this Fall’s most anticipated returning TV show. The Star Wars Disney+ series beat Fargo, This is Us, The Crown, and His Dark Materials.
The inaugural season of The Mandalorian was pretty much self-contained, but this will all change during the upcoming season. A wide array of rumors hinted that iconic Star Wars characters from the franchise’s lore are set to debut this time around, such as Ahsoka, Sabine Wren, and Boba Fett. That being said, it will be interesting to see how these characters fit in the overall narrative, and it’s a safe bet that fans are also eager to find out.
