The Mandalorian Season 3 will see the return of the titular bounty hunter Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) as he returns to his homeworld Mandalore to ask for "forgiveness for his transgression" of removing his helmet three times in previous seasons. But who else is returning for the third season?

The Mandalorian Season 3 will be arriving on Disney+ on March 1 and Star Wars fans couldn't be more excited. It feels like a lifetime since Season 2 ended, but perhaps it feels longer because we've since had three new live-action Star Wars shows in The Book of Boba Fett (2021), Obi-Wan Kenobi (2022), and Andor (2022).
Before we go any further, if you've not yet had the chance, check out the teaser for The Mandalorian Season 3 below:

We think you'll agree that the show looks awesome, and it's great to see Katee Sackhoff reprising her role as Bo-Katan Kryze, only this time it would seem that she has a bone to pick with Din Djarin, as teased in the Season 2 finale. Bo-Katan wants what she believes is rightfully hers - the Darksaber, which grants its wielder the right to rule over Mandalore.
The official trailer, however, teases a lot more, while hinting towards Grogu's future. And here's a clue - it doesn't look like it has anything to do with the Jedi: Check it out below:

It looks like Din Djarin is training Grogu how to become a Mandalorian just like him (albeit one who will live a much longer life and will also have Force abilities!). The Mandalorian Season 3 is shaping up to be all kinds of awesome, but many fans want to know who's returning.
Well, without further ado, as has been confirmed in the casting, the upcoming third season will see the return of Greef Karga (Carl Weathers), Omid Abtahi (Dr. Pershing), Peli Motto (Amy Sedaris), The Armorer (Emily Swallow), Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito), Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff), and, of course, Din Djarin/the Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal), and Grogu (AKA Baby Yoda).
Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the character of Cara Dune has been recast following Gina Carano's firing two years ago, and it remains to be seen whether or not we'll see Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson), Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison), and Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) return.

It's entirely possible, though, and we may even have cameos from other Star Wars characters who have never previously appeared in the show, such Clone Force 99 from Star Wars: The Bad Batch (2021).
