I know we've said this countless times over the last two years but it's worth mentioning again. The Mandalorian was instrumental in bringing fans' interest back to the Star Wars franchise after the sequel trilogy failed to click. Obviously, the success of the Disney+ series can be credited to the brilliant minds behind the project, Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni and so far, the dynamic duo has been riding a huge wave of momentum ahead of Season 3's production start date.
Speaking of, The Mandalorian's upcoming season is slated to begin filming next month according to actor and director Carl Weathers. Originally, plans reportedly called for the series to run for at least four seasons but according to a shocking new rumor, Lucasfilm could end the series altogether after Season 3.
According to the StarWarsOnly Twitter page, the groundbreaking Star Wars spinoff show will mark its third and final season but there's a huge catch. Although the series itself will allegedly get canceled, the report says that Din Djarin and Grogu's story will continue and be carried over to upcoming shows like Ahsoka and Rangers of the New Republic. As it stands, nothing has been officially confirmed yet so take this one with a huge grain of salt.

At this point, the said rumor is a little hard to believe because The Mandalorian is easily the most popular and hottest Star Wars property right now. Lucasfilm will be foolish to end the series in such abrupt fashion and not only that, it will definitely cause a mass hysteria amongst fans, and given that the production company has been trying to win back its fanbase after the sequels, they can't risk getting on the wrong side of fans yet again.
