Thanks to Netflix, audiences have been getting used to having full seasons of shows dropped on the premiere day. With Disney getting in on the streaming service business though, it looks like they’re going to be releasing episodes in a more traditional format when it comes to Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian.

According to Entertainment Weekly, The Mandalorian will indeed come out alongside Disney’s streaming platform on Nov. 12, but their choice of wording is curious—specifically when they say “The first episode debuts when Disney+ streaming service launches…” Does this mean we won’t be getting the full season from the get go?

I guess having a show come out traditionally gives people a better time to digest the material. With people breezing through entire seasons of a show, they usually end up disappearing from public consciousness in a few weeks. If Lucasfilm paced the release of Mandalorian, they could be looking at a good few months of buzz before the season ends.

Then again, it is pretty convenient to just binge a show in one weekend, especially if you don’t have all the free time.

Hopefully this will all turn out for the best. The footage from the Celebration panel looks great, but I was hoping they released it officially online as well. Here’s to hoping Lucasfilm doesn’t keep us waiting too long.

Catch The Mandalorian when it debuts on Disney+ Nov. 12.
