After one of the most famous of all intergalactic bounty hunters was teased in its first season last year, it’s been confirmed now that The Mandalorian‘s second season will feature the original Mando, Boba Fett.
Picking up the mantle (as if anyone else could) is Temuera Morrison, who portrayed Boba’s father Jango in 2002’s Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Naturally the cloned likeness of Boba makes the casting a perfect match.
Since Clones in 2002, Morrison has lent his talent to various corners of the Star Wars universe, playing Republic soldier Commander Cody in Revenge of the Sith, as well as providing voice acting in various Star Wars video games. The Mandalorian will mark Morrison’s return to Star Wars (in a screen-acting capacity) for the first time in 15 years.
Details regarding The Mandlorian‘s second season have begun to flow more freely, with celebrity directors like Robert Rodgriguez slated to direct episodes, confirmed by Rodriguez on his Twitter.

We’ve known for awhile now that a third season of the hit Disney+ series is already in the works, and several other live-action shows are in various stages of production. Expect season two of The Mandalorian to stream on Disney+ this October.
