Diego Luna Gives an Update on ‘Andor’ Season 2!

Andor has become beloved by Star Wars fans, and for good reason: the show is absolutely incredible. But it has been a while since we’ve seen our beloved Cassian Andor (Diego Luna).

Now, it seems as if season 2 is almost done. Diego Luna was at the Emmys to celebrate season 1 of the hit Disney+ show, and discussed filming the rest of the season. Which, at this point, seemingly has about a week to go!

“The good thing about Andor is we know it has an ending. It’s nice to work knowing there’s an ending. You can aim for something,” Luna told Variety at the Emmy Awards. “I have seven days [left to shoot]. Tomorrow I’m flying back to London and we’re finishing this. The first season we shot under very hard circumstances with the pandemic and now the strikes this time. The party’s going to be worth it.”

This makes it seem likely that the show will have a release date in 2025.

What we learned at Star Wars Celebration

At Star Wars Celebration 2023, the Lucasfilm presentation panel had the entire Andor cast take the stage to share details about the first season, what it was like premiering the show and the reaction to it. At the time, we also got a bit new information on season two! And seeing Andy Serkis on stage really did give me hope that we’d see him once more in the series.

Creator Tony Gilroy said that the series would be in production until August of this year, and the post-production would take them to 2024, with a potential release date in 2024 at the time. That was prior to the WGA and SAG/AFTRA strikes that delayed filming.

What we also got back at SWC was a first look at season two! The sneak peak at season 2 was something that gave us a brief glimpse into our favorite characters and had Mon Mothma talking about the future of the Rebellion. We know where the series is heading and Gilroy didn’t try and hide that fact, but it was really something that was an emotional look into season 2.

Rebellions are built on hope

We know what the future holds for Cassian Andor—his fight alongside Jyn Erso—we know what he sacrifices to help the Rebellion defeat the Empire, and getting to see him actually working towards his spy work in the brief look we got was great!

While season 1 didn’t have Mon Mothma and Cassian working together closely, I think season 2 might see them working together in a way that we know they do by Rogue One. And it is just generally exciting to see the love for Andor being shared!
