The Coronavirus outbreak may have forced several productions to shut down in the past few months but that doesn't seem to be stopping the crew of The Mandalorian from working on the second season. Rick Famuyiwa, who has previously worked on the first season and is confirmed to direct an episode in Season 2, has just revealed that they are still working on the series despite the COVID-19 lockdowns.

Famuyiwa recently spoke to Variety where he confirmed that post-production work on The Mandalorian Season 2 has been “more all-consuming than usual” because of the current situation.

“We’ve been hunkered down in the post process, it’s been a challenging and great experience so far, but it’s good to have that to take my mind away from the daily madness that we’re living at the moment,” Famuyiwa said.

It's great to know that the crew of The Mandalorian are still trying to get things done by working remotely. In addition to that, post-production work seems to be an awesome way to get your mind off the ongoing pandemic. With that in mind, it looks like the second season will be done in no time and will be ready to premiere later this year.

The Mandalorian Season 2 has not yet been given an official release date. Nevertheless, it looks like COVID-19 will not cause any major delays in the second season of the Star Wars series. The show is currently expected to return on Disney+ by October 2020.
