Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor was first introduced to the fans back in 2016 in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and now, he’s finally back in the latest Star Wars: Andor series. The first three episodes of the Andor series premiered on Disney+ on September 21 and the show takes place five years before the events of Rogue One.
However, one important person in the life of Cassian Andor is not a part of the series (yet). K-2SO (Alan Tudyk), Cassian’s reprogrammed Imperial security droid, was not a part of his life five years before the events of Rogue One. However, it seems that Cassian had another droid pal called B2EMO.
Cassian’s droid pal, B2EMO, who he calls “Bee,” is the Star Wars’ newest droid, who belongs to Maarva (Fiona Shaw). Bee was there when she took Cassian from his home planet. B2EMO has definitely seen better days by the time the events of the Andor series started, but Bee helps Cassian in a lot of ways throughout the first three episodes of the show. B2EMO was originally described as: "B2EMO – or Bee-two or more simply, Bee – is a very old and weary groundmerch salvage assist unit that's been towing scrap for the Andor family for years. The droid has a wide array of mechanical tools and various capabilities to meet the functions required."
As for K-2SO, it seems that the Andor series will not initially feature the beloved droid from Rogue One. In an interview with Collider, Tudyk talked about appearing at Disney’s D23 announcement of Andor in 2019 and admitted that he will most likely not show up in the first season of the show.
"They're shooting it right now, I'm not in it. But, if it stays on the air, stories keep getting told, I'll end up in there," Tudyk said during the interview. I'm in all these announcements for the show, and I had suggested at D23 when we announced in the show, that it be called K2 Fast K2 Furious: The Cassian Andor Series and, um, that's not happening, it's called Andor!"
The first three episodes of Star Wars: Andor series are currently streaming on Disney+ with new episodes releasing weekly.
