If there’s one thing that can save us from total darkness in 2020, it’s The Child. Disney’s The Mandalorian will return to Disney+ with all-new episodes in October, continuing the saga of a bounty hunter who sort of accidentally became a parent.
Season 1 of The Mandalorian concluded with our titular hero (Pedro Pascal) taking full responsibility for The Child’s wellbeing, but not without a few big personal revelations. We learned that Mando’s real name is Din Djarin, and saw his face for the first time when he removed his helmet in front of IG-11 (R.I.P.). We also spent some more time with the insidious Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito), who survives the crash of his spacecraft and will no doubt hunt both father and child to the far reaches of the galaxy.
The series is nominated for multiple Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series. In May, Disney+ released a companion docuseries about the making of The Mandalorian, with different episodes spotlighting directing, performance, visual effects, and more.
The Mandalorian returns Oct. 30 on Disney+.
