Jon Favreau Confirms Pedro Pascal's Return in The Mandalorian Season 3

There is little doubt that people are currently looking forward to The Book of Boba Fett, the new Star Wars series that will focus on the former bounty hunter and his companion Fennec Shand. But could this mean that The Mandalorian is officially over? Creator Jon Favreau has just assured fans that we'll be seeing more of Pedro Pascal in The Mandalorian Season 3.

Favreau was recently a guest on Good Morning America where he admitted that they didn't want to reveal the Boba Fett series during Disney Investor Day. "We didn't want to spoil the surprise during the big Kathleen Kennedy announcement of all the shows, so they let me keep this one a secret, " Favreau said.

He then explained that The Book of Boba Fett will be a completely new show that will be a spin-off series.

"So this is actually separate from The Mandalorian Season 3. But what we didn't say in that announcement is the next show coming up — what Kathy called 'the next chapter' — is going to be The Book of Boba Fett, and then we go into production right after that on The Mandalorian, back with the main character that we all know and love... pretty soon following that," Favreau stated.

This is undoubtedly a relief for fans who were worried that Din Djarin's story is over. Luckily, it looks like we'll be seeing more of Pascal and hopefully, still keep tabs on Baby Yoda as he trains with Luke Skywalker.

For now, The Mandalorian Season 3 has not yet been given an official release date. The Book of Boba Fett will premiere on Disney+ in December 2021.
