Seeing as the Andor series is set five years before the events of Rogue One occurred, there is no doubt a couple more time jumps are bound to happen in the upcoming Season 2. Not only will this push the story to move forward in a timely manner, but it will serve as an overview for the audience to easily catch up on the plans in the formation of the Rebellion.
Speaking with Deadline, as reported on Screen Rant, Andor creator Tony Gilroy explains how season 2 will be executing the time jumps which will eventually lead Andor into Rogue One’s events. Check out Gilroy’s full comment below:
“So, when we come back for our second half, it’ll be a year later. An entire year will have gone on. All kinds of things will have happened, and we’ll pick up the show; sometimes we’ll do a week, we’ll do three days, we’ll do four days, whatever, and then we’ll drop a year in between.”
It is curious as to how the show creators plan on distributing events leading up to Rogue One in the span of five years, which makes it all the more interesting since Gilroy also previously teased what's to come in season 2.
Previously, the Andor showrunner revealed the first scene they filmed for season 2, which involved Kyle Soller’s Syril Karn. Although, Gilroy is quick to note that the order of filming does not equate to the sequence of the scenes in post-production. Check out his comment below:
“I’ll just say we’re shooting Syril first, Kyle [Soller]’s working first. However, fans need to note that the order of the filming is not entirely the sequence of the scenes in the final product.”
Andor Season 1 is currently streaming on Disney Plus. While Andor Season 2 has no official release date yet, it is expected to premiere on Disney Plus in 2024 at earliest.
