A new report suggests that Andor Season 2 may be pushed back, with the second season of the popular Star Wars show now allegedly arriving in 2025.
The first suggestion of a delay comes from a Disney+ press release that lists what shows will be releasing on the platform in 2024. Though fellow Star Wars series Skeleton Crew and The Acolyte are included, Andor is absent from the year’s list.
Gizmodo reported that, per a source close to the show, Andor Season 2 is now expected to arrive in 2025 as a result of the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes that took place throughout the year. Though the source apparently didn’t “100% close the book” on the new season arriving in 2024, they said that it’s highly unlikely.
Who stars in Andor?
Andor Season 1 premiered towards the end of 2022. It stars Diego Luna and features franchise alums Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera and Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma. Additional cast also includes Star Wars newcomers Denise Gough, Stellan Skarsgård, Kyle Soller, and Adria Arjona.
Andor is executive produced by showrunner Tony Gilroy, who previously directed the reshoots for Rogue One. Gilroy was originally expected to direct three episodes, but was forced to give up the position to Black Mirror‘s Toby Haynes due to pandemic-related travel issues.
