ANDOR Star Teases Season 2 is “So Much Bigger and Smarter” — GeekTyrant

While fans are split on how they feel about the recently released Star Wars series The Acolyte, there’s one Star Wars show that most fans are very excited about seeing return… Andor.

Andor star Adria Arjona recently teased the upcoming season, and while she didn’t say much, she certainly is hyping what fans can expect.

During an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, she said: “I’m so scared to talk about Andor, but all I can say is that this second season is just so much bigger and smarter – and it even surprised me.”

Arjona plays mechanic Bix Caleen in the series, alongside Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor.

Writer and showrunner Tony Gilroy previously teased the next season saying that it might be the most important story he’s ever told! Gilroy said: “I’ve been on Andor for five years now. We’re finishing the second half.”

He continued: “I’ve had a lot of fun over the years, but I don’t know whether I’ve ever done anything as important as these 24 hours of storytelling we’re doing now.”

Gilroy concluded, saying: “I don’t know if it’s just because it’s the thing I’m on, but I don’t think so. I’ve never had a chance to work this big before so it’s a pretty big deal for me.”

The second season will conclude the series and take us through the years of Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor‘s journey as a spy for The Rebellion and how he tracked down the secret of The Death Star’s construction. The story leads right up to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

He previously teased the end of the series, sharing that the creative team knows “exactly where we’re going” and that it’s been “creatively potent” to know where the story is going.

He said: “If you know your ending, it really helps. We know exactly where we’re going. You know what you have to deliver emotionally and what the story has to do. It’s a decision borne of survival, but it’s good for us creatively.”

Gilroy explained how the story will play out in the final season of the series saying: “When we come back later, it’ll be literally like a Friday, Saturday and Sunday. And then, we’ll jump a year, and then it’ll be, like, four or five days, and then we’ll jump a year, and then there’ll be another four or five days, and then we jump a year, and be another four or five days.”

Every three episodes in Andor Season 2 will cover one year’s worth of story, and when previously talking about what we can expect from the series, he explains that it explores the stresses, heartbreak, and triumphs of the growing rebellion.

He added: “Think about the revolution, and think about it from Luthen Rael’s point of view, and Saw Gerrera’s point of view, and Mon Mothma’s point of view.”

He continued: “They’ve started off as original gangsters in this thing, and it’s underground, and it’s secret, and it’s small, and it’s isolated, and contained. In four years, it’s going to go big. Think about any restaurant that you knew that started off as a coffee shop, think about any startup company.

“What happens? Things get very complicated. If your stock and trade of your business is paranoia, and secrecy, and betrayal, and heavy consequences, expanding your business is really difficult.”

Gilroy went on to say: “Then think about it from the Imperial side and they are getting very, very close to a very important energy project. People may have heard of it. It’s an energy project. I guess that’s not a surprise, but I think you’ll see the wear and tear, you’ll see all the stresses, all the heartbreak, and all the triumph of the 20 or 30 people that we’re carrying forward, with Cassian at the center.

“You’ll see those people stumble forward into a very complicated bit of chaos and history that we will pay attention to.”

He went on to say: “We’re gonna work the calendar. There are events on our calendar and you know what they are, some of them, and they’re very important, and we will play those out.”

There’s still no word on when Andor Season 2 will drop on Disney+.
