The Star Wars franchise, much like the Marvel Cinematic Universe is notorious for the level of secrecy that goes into the making of certain projects, including of course The Mandalorian. For months, Lucasfilm has been keeping everything airtight when it comes to the third season of the beloved series but as it nears its premiere, a lot of potential spoilers are already making the rounds online.

Several merch items from The Mandalorian Season 3 have begun surfacing over the weekend, and they seem to confirm the return of one character who was previously rumored to have been excluded from the upcoming season. Ex-WWE superstar Mercedes Varnado's character Koska Reeves is featured in two t-shirt designs along with fellow Mandalorians Din Djarin, Bo-Katan Kryze, and the Armorer.

Considering the shirts are being sold to help promote Season 3, it seems to be an indication that Koska and potentially Axe Woves will be returning to the MandoVerse. This is despite previous reports claiming that both characters were only treated as cameo stars in The Mandalorian's second season.

Varnado has stated in interviews that she's not appearing in Season 3 and while her once-packed wrestling schedule might have prevented her involvement, the chances of her lying to the fandom to avoid giving away spoilers are actually high.

Last year, Varnado already sparked speculation regarding her MandoVerse return after a leaked set video made the rounds online which sees Bo-Katan squaring off with other Mandalorian warriors. Of course, Koska's Season 3 involvement makes a ton of sense given her connection to Bo-Katan, and the trailer alone already spoiled the emergence of multiple Mandalorians.

The third season of The Mandalorian is hitting Disney+ on March 1, 2023.
