Alas, according to a 2024 overview very recently issued by Walt Disney Studios, only the new series The Acolyte (created by Russian Doll‘s Leslye Headland and starring Amandla Stenberg) and Skeleton Crew (created by Jon Watts and Christopher Ford and starring Jude Law) are confirmed for release this year, on the live-action Star Wars series front.

Last April, Tony Gilroy — the Andor showrunner who had penned the screenplay for its “sequel,” Rogue One: A Star Wars Story — shared at Star Wars Celebration that Season 2, which began filming in November 2022 and would need about a year of post-production, was on track for a possible August 2024 release date. (Season 1 streamed Sept. 21 through Nov. 3, 2022.) But the SAG-AFTRA strike at the very least slowed down, if not outright paused, production on the acclaimed sci-fi drama’s second/final season.

A prequel to Rogue One: A Star Wars StoryAndor in its first season followed the titular Cassian (Rogue One‘s Luna) as his murder of two “corpo” guards led him to meet Luthen Rael (Stellan Skarsgård), a key member in the budding Resistance movement. Cassian helped with the heist of an Imperial payroll, but even after escaping, wound up imprisoned. Following a jailbreak, Cass made his way home to Ferrix in time for his mother’s funeral, and managed to elude capture by the many factions hunting him. As the season came to a close, he joined Luthen aboard his Fondor craft, ready to assist the Resistance further.

Season 1 was set five years prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and spanned one year. Season 2 will be another 12 episodes and span the remaining four years leading up to Rogue One.

The confirmed (or at least assumed) Season 2 cast includes Luna, Skarsgård, Genevieve O’Reilly (as Mon Mothma), Denise Gough (Dedra) and Kyle Soller (Syril), and possibly Forest Whitaker (Saw Gerrera) and Adria Arjona (Bix).
