The Mandalorian season 4 release date speculation, cast, and news

We all love Baby Yoda and the Force. So, with that in mind, we've looked at Grogu's Star Wars future in our guide on The Mandalorian season 4.

The Mandalorian season 4 release date

When is The Mandalorian season 4 release date? Din Djarin and Grogu (Baby Yoda to his friends) have delighted us with adventures in a galaxy far, far away for three wonderful seasons of TV.

The pair are practically the faces of Star Wars at this point, so it makes sense that we are all dying for more. In The Mandalorian season 3 episode 8, we saw the duo face off against one of the best Star Wars villains, Moff Gideon, in their attempt to reclaim Mandalore. So, what is next for our heroes? Well, we’ve gained admission into the Jedi archive to bring you everything we know about The Mandalorian season 4 down below.

The Mandalorian season 4 release date speculation

The Mandalorian season 4 is likely to be released in 2025. While this release window hasn’t been confirmed yet, we are pretty confident in our estimate, given the series’ current state of development.

Jon Favreau reportedly finished writing The Mandalorian season 4 in February 2023. However, filming for the Star Wars series hasn’t started yet. Production was initially delayed by the 2023 Writers Strike, and now the Actors strike also seems to be halting the show.

Hopefully, work can begin soon, but assuming that filming starts sometime in 2024, with all the editing needed, we won’t see Mando back until 2025 at the earliest.

The Mandalorian season 4 cast speculation

The cast of The Mandalorian season 4 will feature the return of all our favorite heroes, including Pedro Pascal’s Din Djarin, Katee Sackhoff’s Bo-Katan, and Baby Yoda.

Bo-Katan‘s story has become central to the story of The Mandalorian, and Greef Karga and The Armorer are always hanging around, too, so we expect they’ll be back for more action. One Star Wars character who’s unlikely to return is Giancarlo Esposito, who plays Moff Gideon.

The last time we saw the Moff, he’d been barbequed. However, we do know he was experimenting with clones, so maybe there’s another Gideon hiding somewhere in the galaxy. If there’s anything we know for certain about Star Wars baddies, it’s that they literally never die.

The Mandalorian season 4 cast list will include:

  • Pedro Pascal as Din Djarin
  • Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan
  • Grogu as Baby Yoda
  • Carl Weathers as Greef Karga
  • Emily Swallow as the Armorer

What will The Mandalorian season 4 be about?

Season 4 of The Mandalorian will likely follow Din and his apprentice Grogu on various missions in the Outer Rim as the youngling becomes an official Mandalorian.

There have been rumors that elements of the scrapped Star Wars series Rangers of the New Republic could be incorporated into the new season, as Kathleen Kennedy has hinted at this in the past. That story seemingly died with Cara Dune’s farewell from the franchise, but Din and Grogu are now perfectly placed to pick up the mantle.

Meanwhile, Bo-Katan and her Mandalorian followers are looking to rebuild their world and their community. After Mandalore was destroyed, it was thought abandoned, but a tribe of survivors have maintained the planet as best they could. Now, with the whole civilization united, Bo-Katan can lead her people into a new era.

As one of the best sci-fi series goes on and we get closer to Filoni’s new Star Wars movies, we’ll likely see a few familiar faces — like Ahsoka Tano, Boba Fett, and possibly Jude Law’s character from Skeleton Crew — all make an appearance as we build up to that epic crossover. Maybe, if we’re lucky, there’ll be another bizarre trip to Coruscant, too.

Is there a trailer for The Mandalorian season 4?

There isn’t a trailer for Mandalorian season 4 at the moment and we don’t expect to see one until we’re much closer to the release date.
