Disney+‘s The Mandalorian looks to get better and better with every season. Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni have been successful at weaving the certain complexities of the Star Wars franchise into a tableau, getting references from the George Lucas films and the Star Wars animated series to video games, obscure comics, and Star Wars Legends.
With numerous new opportunities expanding the fates of Grogu, Mando, as well as their allies and enemies, here are some characters that fans really want to see returning for Season 3.
It’s rather tough to believe that Mando and Grogu have been separated from each other, however, going by the end of the second season, the duo will stay apart from each other for the future. This has kept fans wondering how the series will resume as one of its biggest stars has left for training with the famed Jedi Master Luke Skywalker.
Grogu would be probably seen learning to harness the powers of his Force under Skywalker’s guidance, or it’s possible that the unthinkable takes place, and he somehow gets kidnapped again, leaving Mando no choice but to rescue him.
Clone Wars alum Bo-Katan has been a fan favorite so far and is a welcome addition to the show, and fans have been really curious about how her mission to free Mandalore will come to fruition now that Din Djarin has acquired the dark saber.
The Mandalorian doesn’t look interested in evolving into the leader of the planet, but Bo-Katan cannot claim her legacy without taking him down in the battle for the weapon.
Moff Gideon made a late appearance in Season 1, and became interesting to fans halfway in Season 2, after the inclusion of the subplot around Dark Trooper. The Star Wars franchise is well-known for cultivating rememberable villains, however, Gideon hasn’t really had too much screen time to cement himself as a feared character.
Clearly cunning, resourceful, and devious, fans certainly haven’t seen the last of him in the series.
The Children Of The Watch & Protectors Of Concord Dawn
The Children of the Watch are seen as religious zealots by Bo-Katan, a label that forced Din Djarin to start questioning everything he already knew about his initial years raised as a foundling in their midst. Their astounding devotion to The Way might have cut him off from knowing the actual truth about their part in the Mandalorian Civil War.
Meeting more of them would certainly test his loyalties and offer him some more character development. The same would happen if he ran into the Mandalorian Protectors of Concord Dawn, which is led by Fenn Rau. Concord Dawn is the famous homeworld of none other than Jango Fett (Boba Fett‘s father), who fought against the Death Watch, a terrorist group that might have evolved into the Children of the Watch now.
Grand Admiral Thrawn
While Star Wars fans were quite fortunate to see many familiar faces from the franchise, one name came through without any physical accompaniment; Grand Admiral Thrawn.
Thrawn was introduced in “Heir to the Empire” novels by Timothy Zahn (often known as the “Thrawn trilogy”), before making canon in the last two seasons of Star Wars: Rebels, Thrawn is yet to debut in live-action.
