Star Wars fans hold The Mandalorian in such high regard that many believe the MandoVerse can do no wrong. Well, The Book of Boba Fett pretty much proved that even the shared universe revolving around Mando and Grogu is vulnerable to occasional failures and not everything is going to be a smash hit.

The series started off in an underwhelming fashion with some fans even going as far as calling it "boring" and "bland". It wasn't until the likes of Din Djarin and Luke Skywalker showed up that viewers began taking interest in the show and thankfully, the addition of the said characters helped end the series with a bang.

Given its lackluster reception, no one expects Lucasfilm to greenlight The Book of Boba Fett for a second season but if you'll ask Fennec Shand actress Ming-Na Wen, she'd definitely want the show to continue.

Appearing at Fan Expo Boston, Ming-Na shared that while she's hoping Lucasfilm will announce the show's second season soon, she'd much rather keep her expectations at a bare minimum for the time being. She said: "Second season of The Book of Boba Fett, I hope! …I never count my chickens before they hatch, because in this business, you just never know. But, knock on wood, they’ll be announcing that soon."

Should Lucasfilm actually allow The Book of Boba Fett's extension, I certainly hope they'll make Boba the show's actual focal point instead of using the show as a bridge to other projects. Because clearly, the famed bounty hunter seemingly played second fiddle in his own show.

All episodes of The Book of Boba Fett are available for streaming on Disney+.
