There are many ways to explore a single narrative. There are various backstories to be explored and characters' connections to be linked. Fans have to make sure that the creators, directors, and writers of their favorite shows are not the only ones who can control the story; that’s why they speculate and share theories that they can gather from what’s already been presented to them. The Mandalorian Season 3 officially premiered today. As expected, this new season welcomes more fan theories. Show creator Jon Favreau recently expressed his sentiments about these endless theories.
During a tour of the Industrial Light & Magic StageCraft set with Variety, Favreau commented on how often fans speculate about The Mandalorian Season 3 and how they'll occasionally try to predict where the story is heading. “The worst is when they're so smart that it makes you think about things that you hadn't necessarily considered,” he said. However, the creator also noted the positive things that came from too much speculation. “The good thing about our fans is that they usually put a lot of thought into their speculation,” Favreau reasoned.
Favreau recently shared that he has already written Season 4, and fans can expect that it will not be the last of the show. According to him and The Mandalorian co-creator Dave Filoni, they have not yet conceived of an official endgame to Djarin and Grogu's story. “I love for these stories to go on and on. And so these characters potentially could be with us for a while, and I love telling stories in their voice, and I love the way the adventures unfold and I'm looking forward to doing much more,” said Favreau.

Season 3 marks the return of Djarin and Grogu following their last appearance in 2020. The Book of Boba Fett continued the duo's story, revealing that they had reunited on Tatooine while assisting Boba Fett in his battle against members of the Pyke Syndicate. This season will also feature the comebacks of supporting characters Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) and Greef Karga (Carl Weathers). It's also expected to address Cara Dune's in-universe absence after Gina Carano was fired in 2021.
