In a recent interview with The Direct, The Mandalorian star Katee Sackhoff addressed recent fan speculation about Bo-Katan potentially becoming the new lead in the upcoming fourth season of the Star Wars series. Sackhoff confirmed that there have been no discussions at all about Bo-Katan taking over Pedro Pascal’s titular role.
“No. I think there’s always going to be a lot of speculation in this fandom,” She said. “You know, I think it’s one of the reasons why people love this fandom so much. And they love this universe so much that a lot of times it allows just enough ambiguity for people to interpret things the way that they want to interpret them. And out of that there is the ability to have a lot of misinformation get out, or just, you know, wishful thinking.”
In addition, The Star Wars: Clone Wars actress reassured fans that The Mandalorian will always remain “Din Djarin’s show.” The Bo-Katan rumors came after the fan-favorite heroine took on a much larger part during Season 3, which ended with two factions of Mandalorians uniting to rebuild their home planet of Mandalore.
What was The Mandalorian Season 3 about?
The Mandalorian is created and executive produced by Jon Favreau. Season 3 also featured Carl Weathers as Greef Karga, Amy Sedaris as Peli Motto, Emily Swallow as The Armorer, Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon, and more. The latest installment also featured appearances from Ahmed Best, Jack Black, Lizzo, and Christopher Lloyd.
“The journeys of the Mandalorian through the Star Wars galaxy continue. Once a lone bounty hunter, Din Djarin has reunited with Grogu,” says the synopsis for Season 3. “Meanwhile, the New Republic struggles to lead the galaxy away from its dark history. The Mandalorian will cross paths with old allies and make new enemies as he and Grogu continue their journey together.”
The Mandalorian hails from executive producers Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, Colin Wilson, Karen Gilchrist, and Carrie Beck. Favreau is also set as the showrunner and one of its directors. Seasons 1-3 are now available for streaming on Disney+.
