Earlier this week, a Disney+ press release revealed precisely which exhibits the corporate is anticipating to debut on the streamer in 2024. For Star Wars, it talked about Skeleton Crew and The Acolyte, however that was it. Noticeably absent was season two of Andor, the award-winning spy present starring Diego Luna which showrunner Tony Gilroy mentioned was aiming to arrive summer of 2024.
Now, that’s not going to occur. A supply near the present confirmed to io9 that whereas Acolyte and Skeleton Crew are scheduled to return out in 2024 (together with some animated exhibits like the ultimate season of The Unhealthy Batch), Andor season two shouldn’t be anticipated to affix them. The explanations are the present was compelled right into a mid-production delay because of the writers and actors strikes, in addition to the discharge of the opposite two exhibits, which can take up a superb chunk of the yr.
The supply didn’t 100% shut the guide on Andor season two debuting in 2024, however made it appear extremely unlikely.
Actually, this can be a disappointment for followers who have been hoping to see the continuation, and conclusion, of Cassian’s story as quickly as humanly doable. Nevertheless, do you actually need Gilroy and his crew to hurry issues simply to hit a launch date? Particularly when Lucasfilm has two model new Star Wars exhibits coming beforehand, with all new characters and tales from model new inventive minds? In fact not. So we’re selecting to have a look at this as a glass-half-full scenario.

That will be a pleasant combine for the yr, proper? Disney CEO Bob Iger has also been insistent in latest months that the corporate now not needs to flood the market with its massive model names. All of which is to say, the delay may be finest for everybody.
There you’ve it. Andor season two is probably going coming in 2025. Are you upset about Andor’s delay? Do you suppose season two can reside as much as the unique? Tell us under.
