Ahead of the hotly-anticipated third season’s premiere, showrunner Jon Favreau has revealed The Mandalorian season 4 has already been full scripted.

“Season 4? Yeah, I’ve written it already. We have to know where we are going to tell a fully formed story. So, we had mapped it out, Dave [Filoni] and I,” Jon Favreau said during an interview with BFMTV (via Collider).

“And then slowly you just write each episode. So I was writing it during post-production, because all of it has to feel like a continuation and one full story.”

Parallel to the Pedro Pascal-led series, Favreau and Filoni have also laid the narrative foundation for the upcoming Ahsoka spin-off starring Rosario Dawson as the titular character, former padawan of Anakin Skywalker. Not only does The Mandalorian share a connection to this, but also an original story currently being crafted by MCU Spider-Man director Jon Watts dubbed Skeleton Crew starring Jude Law. Hence the need to plan way in advance.

The Mandalorian Season 3 Release Date Confirmed

The Mandalorian season 3 picks up immediately where the story left off in The Book of Boba Fett (which was really The Mandalorian season 2.5).

Din Djarin / the eponymous Mando (Pedro Pascal & Brendan Wayne) has since reunited with Grogu / The Child / Baby Yoda to reform the Clan of Two; but at the cost of the latter’s Jedi training under the legendary Luke Skywalker (de-aged Mark Hamill & Graham Hamilton).

Din Djarin has also been excommunicated from his tribe for removing his helmet, thereby breaking their sacred code. But that doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll be left stranded without any community. Like a disgraced Hollywood star looking to rehabilitate their image, old Mando is going back to his roots to remind everyone he’s still bloody good at what he does.

“We established in The Book of Boba Fett that there was an opportunity for the Mandalorian to be redeemed, because he had transgressed against the Creed by removing his helmet,” said Jon Favreau.

“And among his group of Mandalorians, that is something that’s not permitted. Now, we know that there are other groups of Mandalorians where they have different sets of rules.”

Favreau added: “In The Clone Wars, we saw with Dave [Filoni] and also with the character that I voiced that the Mandalorians are very different there. And so these different groups are coming together and we’re going to figure out… the Nexus point for all of those communities, of course, is their homeworld from which they’re exiled, which is Mandalore.”

Pedro Pascal has been re-joined by Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan Kryze, Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon, Carl Weathers as Greef Kargas, Emily Swallow as The Armorer, Omid Abtahi as Dr Pershing, Amy Sedaris, while also welcoming the likes of Back To The Future star Christopher Lloyd and Tim Meadows.

The Mandalorian season 3 hits Disney+ next week (March 1st).
