The Mandalorian Season 2 begins streaming on Disney Plus on October 30. Here’s how to watch Episode 1 of live-action Star Wars show.
Following the runaway success of the first season, the flagship Disney Plus original series The Mandalorian is back for a second run of episodes. The Season 2 premiere arrives today, on Friday October 30, and we couldn’t be more excited to jump back into that post-Return of the Jedi world, which captivated so many in 2019.
The title character will return to our screens, alongside The Child (aka Baby Yoda), Greef Karga, Cara Dune, Moff Gideon and perhaps, just perhaps, a beloved cult character from the Star Wars universe.
What time does The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 1 start?
The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 1 will be available for streaming at 7am UK time on Friday October 30. So, if you feel like getting up early to watch before work, it’ll be there waiting for you.
How to watch The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 1
In order to watch The Mandalorian Season 2, you’ll need an active Disney Plus subscription. For £5.99 a month, or £59.99 a year (a 15% saving) you’ll get access to both seasons of the hit Star Wars spin-off. There are no longer any free Disney Plus trials available, so you’ll need to fork over a bit of cash in order to watch. You can sign-up here.
Should you sign-up now, you can catch up with all eight episodes of season one, as well as enjoying a massive array of Star Wars movies and animated television shows like The Clone Wars and Rebels. You’ve also got the massive array of Disney, Pixar and Marvel content to delve into, as well as Fox programming like The Simpsons and all the nature programming you can shake a stick at from National Geographic.
Once again, Disney plans to drop one episode a week. There’s 8 episodes in total, so if you only want to subscribe for a month, you should wait a few weeks before signing up. The season 2 episodes will air on the following dates:
- Oct. 30.
- Nov. 6.
- Nov. 13.
- Nov. 20.
- Nov. 27.
- Dec. 4.
- Dec. 11.
- Dec. 18.
The Mandalorian Season 2 preview
*SEASON ONE SPOILERS AHEAD*
When we left Mando (Game of Thrones’ Pedro Pascal) and The Child at the end of season one, the unlikely duo had escaped the clutches of the darksaber-wielding baddie Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito from Breaking Bad) on the Razor Crest ship.
Gideon is down, but not out. We see him clamber from the wreckage of his TIE Fighter, seemingly hell bent on vengeance. We know Cara Dune and Greef Karga are also in the picture, but it’s unclear the role they will play in season 2.
After protecting ‘Baby Yoda’ throughout season one, Mando set off to return the child to his people, who just happen to be sorcerers called Jedi. Sound familiar. Season 2 will likely chart this progress as they face off against various foes throughout the Galaxy. There are rumours that the legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett will make a comeback t00. WWE’s Sasha Banks is also cast in all eight episodes, but her role remains a huge mystery,
The official season 2 description on Disney Plus reads: “The Mandalorian and the Child continue their journey, facing enemies and rallying allies as they make their way through a dangerous galaxy in the tumultuous era after the collapse of the Galactic Empire.”
