As production begins to resume in the film industry worldwide, this is a very positive sign that The Mandalorian’s third season is on the right track. A November production date also lines up pretty closely to previous productions schedules for the series.
The Mandalorian season one began shooting in October 2018 through to February 2019 and season two filmed from October 2019 to March 2020. This sees season 3’s production starting slightly later than normal, which could potentially push its wrap date back further as well. Whether this will impact The Mandalorian’s season 3 premiere date in 2021 remains to be seen.
New tweets from Skyler Shuler, Editor-in-Chief for The DisInsider, have revealed more insight into The Mandalorian’s upcoming third season. According to Shuler, the working title for The Mandalorian season 3 is ‘Buccaneer.’

The working title ‘Buccaneer’ is also a source of intrigue. Star Wars project code names have always been intensely investigated by fans as they often contain a hidden meaning. For example, the working title for Solo: A Star Wars Story was ‘Red Cup’ which was in reference to red solo cups. The season one production title for The Mandalorian went by ‘Huckleberry,’ which many believed was in reference to the western film Tombstone.
