Olyphant’s inclusion in the show has been discussed for a while now, already with reports that he will be suiting up in Boba Fett’s armor even though Temura Morrison will be returning to that role. This is also taking into account that Fett is presumed to be dead after Return of the Jedi, so his comeback will be something to closely keep an eye on.
Thanks to a new Instagram story from Disney+’s Germany (Deutschland) official account, season 2 of The Mandalorian has officially added Timothy Olyphant and Rosario Dawson to the cast. Olyphant’s role is still undisclosed, although his appearance in the show has been rumored to involve Boba Fett, while Dawson will be playing Ahsoka Tano. The casting announcment can be watched below:

Both Olyphant and Dawson have been involved in major rumors and reports that point to their appearance in The Mandalorian, and this confirmation is yet another exciting bit of news on top of everything that has already come concerning the hit show’s second season. As the first brand new Star Wars project to arrive on Disney+ last year, it has already boasted its fair share of Hollywood’s best and brightest stars even before tonight’s announcement.
