While Cassian Andor met a tragic fate in the Battle of Scarif, Star Wars fans were delighted with the news that he's set to return in the upcoming Rogue One spin-off series following his story along with K-2SO. And although co-writer Tony Gilroy will be writing and directing the new series, it looks like fans of Gary Whitta will be quite disappointed.

Over at Twitter, Rogue One co-writer Gary Whitta was asked by a fan if he will be helping with the spin-off series in any way and he had a very simple answer. "No," Whitta confirmed. Unfortunately, he didn't go into specifics too. Fans of Whitta would be quite upset with his confirmation seeing as he wrote the comic book adaptation of The Last Jedi. Regardless, they are still looking forward to the series.

That being said, the Rogue One spin-off series already sounds promising. Diego Luna will be reprising his role as Cassian Andor and Alan Tudyk is very much excited to return as K-2SO once again. In a previous interview, Tudyk revealed that he was excited to return after seeing The Mandalorian and "what they can do with a series" as well as "how much fun it is" to go into "smaller stories."

The Rogue One prequel series is yet to have received a release date, but in the meantime, fans could check out the first season of The Mandalorian on Disney+.
