The Mandalorian: Dead Character Rumored for Shocking Season 3 Return

The Mandalorian's first two seasons have been home to several surprises that blew every Star Wars fan away and with Season 3 already in production, Star Wars junkies are expecting to witness more. If you've been following the latest rumors about the upcoming third season, you'd probably have a gist of what's about to go down. Now, a new rumor suggests that a dead character a lot of you may have probably forgotten about will be making his shocking return to the MandoVerse.

According to a new and not to mention intriguing scoop from Giant Freakin Robot, Season 1 character, IG-11 will be making his return in the upcoming season and will still be voiced by director Taika Waititi who helmed Season 1's explosive (literally) finale. To those who may have forgotten about him, IG-11 is a bounty hunter droid that was originally programmed for the sole purpose of killing the Child aka Grogu. Over the course of Season 1, IG-11 was reconfigured and turned into a trusty ally for Din Djarin and his crew, even sacrificing himself during the finale to save Baby Yoda.

Of course, nothing has been officially confirmed yet so take this one with a huge grain of salt. But considering we all saw IG-11 self-destruct and blow up to dust, it'll be interesting to see how he'll be able to come back. I mean, let's say some of his parts were recovered and rebuilt to make a new droid, would it still be IG-11? I don't think so but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

The Mandalorian Season 3 is currently in production.
