In an interview with, “Andor” creator Tony Gilroy explained the unique structure of the “Star Wars” show and how its first season will take place over the course of a year. “We are covering one year in our first 12 episodes that we’ve completed,” said Gilroy. “It felt very important, particularly for a story where you’re taking somebody on a five-year journey, to really, really be fully invested in their complete story, from origin and as we know in ‘Rogue’ to the end.”
Gilroy, who co-wrote and directed reshoots of “Rogue One,” has an equally unique plan for the show’s second season. Every three episodes of the 12-episode second season will jump another year, leading up to the events of “Rogue One.” With this, Gilroy is confident in their strategy, believing that fleshing out Cassian Andor’s story and character should be of utmost importance. “We’re very excited about it,” he revealed. “So we get to take the formative forging of Cassian Andor in the first twelve episodes, and then we get to take that organism that we built up and we get to run it through the next four years in a really exciting, narrative fashion.”
As of now, “Andor” Season 2 has not been given an official release date by Disney. However, based on Gilroy’s predictions of the production schedule, a 2024 release is most likely (via).
