‘Andor’ could change Star Wars TV in one surprising way

Live under the thumb of the Empire is not easy, as several Star Wars films and shows have pointed out. The upcoming Star Wars series Andor intends to do the same, only it may not follow the same structure as Lucasfilm’s other Disney+ originals.

That Villain One The prequel series is expected to premiere later this year, and if it does, it will shed an interesting light on the origins of Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and revisit the Imperial era of the Star Wars universe. And just because Andor is evolving into another prestigious Star Wars TV show in much the same way as The Mandalorian and Obi Wan Kenobi does not mean that it will perfectly follow in the footsteps of these series. In fact it looks like this Andor will actually take on a structure entirely unique to its own story.

Two Seasons Guaranteed — In a recent interview with vanity fair, Andor Creator and showrunner Tony Gilroy said he expects the Disney+ series to only run for two seasons.

Gilroy revealed this unexpected information in response to a question about Alan Tudyk’s K-2SO being absent from the Andor to water. K-2SO was, of course, Cassian’s closest ally in 2016 Rogue One: A Star Wars Storywhich led many Star Wars fans to reasonably expect the droid to appear in Andor. Unfortunately, this is not the case.

However, Gilroy has hinted that the fan-favorite character could appear in the second season of Andor. “We don’t have Alan Tudyk. At least not yet.” Andor Showrunner tells vanity fair.

Gilroy went on to discuss the overall structure of Andor, saying, “It’s a second season, but for me it’s really the second half of the novel. This first season is all about him becoming a revolutionary and the second 12 episodes take him with him Villain One.”

The two halves of a novel – Assuming Gilroy’s plans for Andor not changing in the near future, his comments here suggest that the show’s second season will also be its last. If so, then so be it Andor won’t be a limited series as some fans had speculated, but it won’t be a continuing series either. Instead, it will adopt a two-season structure that’s incredibly rare on television.

Most shows that only run for two seasons usually come to an end because they get cancelled. in the AndorIn the case of Cassian, however, it seems like the show’s second season will fill in any final blanks in Cassian’s backstory.Villain One Travel. On the one hand, it will probably serve as a perfect introduction Villain One in the same way that the 2016 film perfectly ushers in A new hope. On the other hand, AndorThe allotted length of also means that fans shouldn’t expect it to run longer than two seasons.

This is also indicated by Gilroy’s comments Andor could consist of two 12-episode seasons, meaning that a total of 24 episodes could ultimately be produced. For comparison, the first two seasons of The Mandalorian each ran for eight episodes during Obi Wan Kenobi consists of only six.


That Vice versa Analysis – While Gilroy’s comments may come as disappointing to some fans, AndorArguably, having a fixed two-season structure is a good thing. Because if the series proves to be a hit among Star Wars fans, its success could give Lucasfilm the confidence to be a little more experimental with the structure of its Disney+ shows.

Instead of trying to force each project to be either a multi-season ongoing show or a limited one-season series, the studio was actually able to adjust the length of each title to fit the needs of their stories. Regardless of how you feel about Lucasfilm’s current Disney+ plans, that’s undeniably an exciting thought.

Andor is expected to premiere on Disney+ in late summer 2022.
