Andor season 2: the latest information
Andor season 2 release date: when will we see the sequel?
We don’t know the Andor Season 2 release date yet, but we can look at last season’s schedule to give us some clues. Originally, season 1 of Andor was supposed to be filmed between November 2020 and July 2021. Filming then wrapped up in September 2021. The series will have launched a year later, in September 2022.
At this point, we know Andor Season 2 is set to begin filming on November 21, 2022. If Andor Season 2 sticks to the above schedule and avoids another Covid-19 outbreak (which is a long way to be acquired), it is not a stretch to believe that we could see the release of season 2 of Andor in July 2024. That would correspond to eight months of filming and a year of post-production. After all, Gilroy, the director himself said that we shouldn’t expect to see season 2 until 2024, and that filming for the series would probably end in August 2023, with a year of post-production. .

There couldn’t be Andor season 2 without Diego Luna, who plays Cassian Jeron Andor, symbol of the Rebel Alliance. We already know from Rogue One that he will become a soldier, pilot and intelligence officer. The director has also already mentioned the return of the droid K-2SO, just like B2EMO.

His daughter, Leida (Bronte Carmichael) too. Banker Davo Sculdun (Richard Dillane) will likely be there too, as will Mothma’s husband Perrin Fertha (Alastair Mackenzie). Sadly, we don’t expect to see more Maarva Andor (Fiona Shaw), Cassian’s deceased mother off-camera, as well as Karis Nemik.
The returns of Brasso (Joplin Sibtain), Bix Caleen (Adria Arjona) who is detained and tortured by the BSI, and Salman Paak (Abhin Galeya), who ran the communications tower used by Bix to communicate with Luthen, are more mixed. Salman’s son Wilmon (Muhannad Bhaier) is expected to return.
