The space-western series The Mandalorian, set in the Star Wars universe, concluded its third season on April 19, 2023, leaving viewers eagerly anticipating The Mandalorian Season 4. Starring Pedro Pascal as Din Djarin, the Disney+ original series premiered on November 12 and now fans can expect the fourth season to bring more excitement and adventure to the screen.
Has The Mandalorian Season 4 been renewed?
Jon Favreau has confirmed that The Mandalorian will be returning for a fourth season, and he’s personally penned the scripts for it.
The forthcoming season is set to feature connections to Dave Filoni’s Ahsoka series, further expanding the interconnected narrative that was established in the prior season.
Jon Favreau said The Mandalorian Season 4 isn’t the end and is in fact a middle chapter of a much larger story.
In an interview with TotalFilm, Jon Favreau revealed his intentions for the series.
Total Film- The Mandalorian season 4 has also been confirmed, and I know you’ve said that you’ve written it. Are we getting close to an endpoint now, do you have an ending in mind?
Jon Favreau – No, I don’t – I think the beauty of this is that it’s a middle chapter of a much larger story. And though we’ll have resolution over time with these characters, I think that how these characters fit into the larger scope and scale, but it’s not like there’s a finale that we’re building to that I have in mind. Quite the contrary, I love for these stories to go on and on. And so these characters potentially could be with us for a while, and I really love telling stories in their voice, and I love the way the adventures unfold and I’m looking forward to doing much more.
The Mandalorian showrunner Jon Favreau discussed the interconnected nature of the Star Wars universe and how the upcoming season four of The Mandalorian will tie into the Ahsoka series. Favreau emphasized that while each adventure is designed to stand alone, the events and timelines in one story will inevitably affect the other. As he continues to write The Mandalorian season 4, he is also in constant communication with Dave Filoni and Jon Watts to ensure continuity and consistency in the larger Star Wars canon.
Favreau also discussed the upcoming Star Wars series Skeleton Crew, which is directed by Jon Watts and has a unique Amblin feel. The series is focused on young people living in the Star Wars universe and aims to provide a fresh perspective while remaining consistent with what fans have come to expect. Favreau praised the team’s ability to put together a great cast and personality, and he believes that viewers will really connect with what they are doing. While the series is still in the works, Favreau has seen enough to be confident in its success.
Overall, Favreau’s comments highlight the intricate planning and coordination that goes into creating a successful interconnected universe. The upcoming seasons of The Mandalorian and various other Star Wars show promise to provide fans with exciting adventures while also expanding the larger story and mythology.
The Mandalorian Season 4 Release Date
There isn’t an official date of release for Season 4. The filming for The Mandalorian season 4 is slated to commence in October of this year, which suggests that the release date may fall sometime in late 2024 or early 2025.
Similar to The Book of Boba Fett, two other series set in the same timeline as The Mandalorian are currently in development.

The second, Star Wars: Skeleton Crew, has already wrapped filming and is expected to be released by the end of the year. While the series can stand on its own, they will undoubtedly include crossovers and nods to one another.
Disney+ is also set to release The Acolyte and Andor Season 2 in 2024.
