THE MANDALORIAN: Second Season Will Not Be Delayed Due to the Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic shut down film and TV productions around the world, but The Mandalorianremains on track to debut season two in October on Disney+.

"We were lucky enough to have finished photography before the lockdown," executive producer Jon Favreau said during a virtual panel for the ATX Television Festival moderated byVanity Fair's Anthony Breznican. "Thanks to how technology-forward Lucasfilm and ILM are, we have been able to do all of our visual effects and editing and postproduction remotely through systems that had been set up by those companies for us."

Favreau noted that due to the rigors of the TV schedule, season two feels like a continuation of season one rather than a new thing. 

"As we explore partnering with new filmmakers and having new characters and going deeper with the characters we already have, it's really been very fun and fulfilling and I hope people are having as much fun seeing it as we are having making it," Favreau said.
