Andor Season 2 Will Be A Blast For Fans With Special Cameos From Rogue One

Andor Season 2 Will Be A Blast For Fans With Special Cameos From Rogue One

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was an unexpected success in 2016. Visionary Tony Gilroy took over the narrative and created a fantastic Disney+ show ‘Andor’ with a unique perspective on rebellion. 

The titular role is played by Diego Luna, who delivered a breathtaking performance in season 1. Most of Season 1 was solely on the journey of Cassian Andor into the Recon Rebel. In a recent statement, he confirms the return of some special characters for season 2 of the show.

His exact comments: 

I can tell you, Rogue One is coming, so there will be characters there that you will recognize. There will be cool stuff. For those who love Rogue One, this season is going to be very special. And it’s going to be fascinating to go straight to Rogue One after watching this second season, because you will see Rogue One from a different perspective. I promise you that.

It’s fantastic. The only thing I can tell you is what happens at the end. It’s the world upside down. That’s the only thing you don’t talk about in an interview, but here we all know what the end is. I can tell you one thing, Tony Gilroy is a fantastic writer, and he created amazing characters that we got to meet in Andor season one. It’s going to be a very rich second season, because all those stories matter today. It is a true ensemble piece. It got very complicated in season one, and everything has to get resolved. Every story matters.

Diego Luna used Twitter to compliment the showrunner and the writer Tony Gilroy, who was also associated with Rogue One, for offering real societal issues in the proxy of Star Wars, which was widely praised for being powerful and complex. 

Set five years before the events of Rogue One, the episodes of Andor season 1 were divided into arcs that occurred over the course of the first year. 

Season 2 follows a somewhat heightened pace as each three-part story is set in the remaining four years before Rogue One. This may even be a direct narrative parallel to one of the movie's first scenes, where Cassian introduces himself to his informant, Tivik, on the Ring of Kafrene. 

Andor season 1 is streaming on Disney+, and season 2 has completed production. It is expected to be released on Disney+ in late 2024—early 2025.

May the Force be with you!
