Star Wars fans and newcomers alike can get their first glimpse of Andor on September 21. The special premiere will give viewers not one but three episodes to explore, according to a release schedule published on Twitter. September 28 also introduces a fourth episode finishing out the month. While there’s no official information on runtimes, some unverified leaks put the average between 40 and 50 minutes (via CBR). Initial critical reactions to the debut episodes have been overwhelmingly positive. Its adult approach to the material as well as an unflinching connection to real-world issues is garnering praise.
October sees the series add four more episodes to the service. Unless something changes, expect a new episode on October 5, 12, 19, and 26. It all builds up to the final four episodes that debut on November 2, 9, 16, and 23. The series finale — set on November 23 — is well placed for US Thanksgiving travelers seeking a diversion or fans settling down for holiday events. Viewers hoping to end this season with everything settled for Andor might be surprised to learn a second season is already planned out by Gilroy. It was also confirmed by actor Stellan Skarsgård in regard to his upcoming filming schedule.
“Andor,” a Disney+ original series, premieres on the service on September 21 at 3:00 am EST/12:00 pm PST.
