According to the latest tweet from the official Disney account, both Din Djardin and Grogu will be back for a new season on Disney+ on March 1, 2023. We're also treated to a new glimpse of the duo sitting in the cockpit of the Naboo N-1 Starfighter from its appearance in The Book of Boba Fett.
The details surrounding Season 3 of The Mandalorian remain unclear. The previous trailer teased rising tensions between Katee Sackhoff's Bo-Katan Kryze and Mando. The two can't seem to find common ground on who should lead the Mandalorians. Kryze is also taking offense that Mando has the Darksaber, which she believes is hers by right. We'll find out more about Djardin and Grogu's return to Mandalore go in a few months.
Judging from what we've seen so far, The Mandalorian Season 3 will pick up from Star Wars Rebels. We'll have to wait until March 1 to find out for sure.
The next few months will be huge for Pedro Pascal. In addition to his return as Din Djardin, he'll star in HBO's The Last of Us. The live-action adaptation of Naughty Dog's best-selling narrative-driven gaming franchise will premiere on January 15.
