Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 3 might feature Pedro Pascal’s Din Djarin against Katee Sackhoff’s Bo-Katan Kryze as a feud over the Darksaber. In the finale of The Mandalorian Season 2, Bo-Katan Kryze insisted that the only way she could obtain the Darksaber properly is if she defeated Djarin in a duel for it, with her goal of leading the warrior ways back to Mandalore.

Now heading to the third season, the conclusion of the most recent episode of the show and the trailer released at the recent Star Wars Celebration imply that a showdown between them might be on the way.

"It sure seems that way, doesn't it?" Sackhoff said in an interview with during the Star Wars Celebration when she was asked if Season 3 would be centered around the story of Din Djarin vs. Bo-Katan. "I think one of the coolest things about our show is how we openly accept how it takes a team to create these characters. Working with Pedro and Brendan [Wayne] and Lateef [Crowder] is, each one of the brings a different expertise to that suit as myself with all of my stunt doubles. There were no less than five women in my suit this season because everyone has a different level of expertise and it's really important to the fans to make sure that these characters come across capable and that they come across with the right experience and it takes multiple different people to do that. Most of my days are filled with Brendan Wayne and he and I have a lot of fun together."

"Well, I would think that Sabine would want to know what happened but I also think that it would be a wasted opportunity if we don't see Bo-Katan in that world but that's just me,' Sackhoff added. 'That's above my paygrade!"

While he didn’t reveal any information about the possibility of Sackhoff joining the upcoming Ahsoka series, The Mandalorian writer Jon Favreau did tease in an interview with what may be coming between Bo-Katan and Mando when Season 3 gets released in February. “Having those two characters weave together, I think, really caught people in an unexpected way," Favreau said during the interview. "Two sets of Mandalorians that actually seem very different co-existing in the same world, so, now as we go into the next season, we start to really explore what that means and how those characters might see eye to eye or maybe not get along at all."

Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 3 is set to be released on February 2023. Season 4 is currently in development.
