As we continue to blow through all the fun and nostalgic titles on Disney+, including a few re-binge sessions of The Mandalorian, great news has emerged. Although the second season of the hit Star Wars live-action series isn't being released until this fall, season 3 is already in the works. Be prepared for the Baby Yoda craze to last for years to come, because Mando and his asset aren't going anywhere anytime soon.

As reported by Variety, insiders say that showrunner Jon Favreau has been "writing season 3 for a while," and in recent weeks the art department has been working on some concepts for the third installment. "We’ve just started pre-production and are looking into further adventures for The Mandalorian in season 3," one source confirmed. 

Thankfully for Star Wars fans, filming for season 2 of The Mandalorian wrapped in early March, prior to the coronavirus pandemic putting a pause on productions around the world. This means that the planned release month of October presumably still stands. Although we've still got a bit of a wait until we get to see more of The Child and his (or her!) protector, it's extremely comforting to know that we've got so many more adventures from the fan-favorite bounty hunter to come.
