Disney did not let the fans stay in mystery for a long time, also after season 2 of The Mandalorian, fans are waiting for The Mandalorian Season 3. We know season three is releasing soon and that’s a piece of good news for the Mandalorian fans. But the question arises is when will we exactly see it? who will be in it? What is in the upcoming series?
At this early stage, The Mandalorian Season 3 cast was not embedded in Carbonite. Pedro Pascal is back as Din Djarin and Grogu are back on his side. The continued filming of Pascal’s other new show, The Last of Us, was prioritized over Mandalorian Season 3 and could delay filming, but production has continued since then. Moff Gideon actor Giancarlo Esposito also revealed in an interview that Gideon could have a greater presence in the third installment. . What an ominous thing …
Carl Weathers is back as Greef Karga and will also be directing again, as he confirmed at Steel City Con. After The Mandalorian Season 2 ends, we can expect Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan to return, especially with Darksaber currently in Din’s hands. Rosario Dawson’s Ahsoka is likely to return, though she also has an upcoming spin-off and her status remains unclear following her appearance in The Book of Boba Fett.
Meanwhile, Sasha Banks, AKA Mercedes Varnado, has confirmed that she won’t be returning as Koska Reeves in Season 3. Another person who definitely won’t appear on the show is Gina Carano’s Cara Dune. The consensus is that she will be one of the main characters in New Republic Rangers. However, LucasFilm severed all ties with Carano following his social media activity. As a result, she will not appear in The Mandalorian Season 3 and the New Republic Rangers spin-off will be canceled.
What will be season 3 about?
At the end of The Book of Boba Fett, we see The Mandalorian and Grogu fly away on Mando’s new ship. While there is little indication of what will happen in The Mandalorian Season 3, it has been previously hinted that the creative timeline behind The Mandalorian has a large, layered world that spans several seasons.
In an interview, Giancarlo Esposito talked about what he expected to happen in the future series, even referring to the fourth season. “We live in a huge universe and [there’s] so much to explore, so I think this show will begin to form the basis for the depth and breadth of Season 3 and Season 4, where you will begin to learn the answer,” If Disney is indeed intent on expanding the show so far, hopefully, The Mandalorian Season 3 could be the start of a whole new round of movies. Seasons 1 and 2 are very interested in the myths surrounding Darksaber and the will for a potential encounter with Luke Skywalker. Now that we know how this story plays out thanks to Boba Fett’s Book, maybe it’s time for Mando and Grogu to start a new chapter. Given that The Mandalorian takes place between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, it will ultimately have to be explained why Grogu didn’t affect Disney sequels at all, or what happened to The Mandalorian.

There are some Star Wars Rebels characters and some of the original trilogy that could theoretically still appear, but they may likely appear in Ahsoka.
Expected release date
The sad news is that there’s still no official announcement on a release date, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for speculation. December 2022 is said to be the month to watch, with The Mandalorian Season 3 slated to premiere on Disney+ after that. That would make sense since it matches the similar time frames of seasons one and two, falling pretty close to the same time.
