Creator and executive producer Jon Favreau has finished writing The Mandalorian season 4 – but the Star Wars TV show won’t be ending any time soon.

The Mandalorian season 3’s release is on the horizon, and a fourth season is already in the works – but the show’s end is far from near. With spinoff series Ahsoka and Skeleton Crew also set to release this year, it’s a busy year for the Mandoverse. That trend will continue, as showrunner Jon Favreau has already completed writing The Mandalorian season 4 and is in the midst of pre-production.

In an interview with Total Film (via GamesRadar), Favreau discussed the creative process for The Mandalorian. Having confirmed again that The Mandalorian season 4 has been written, he revealed that the narrative is only now reaching a midpoint, with no ending in mind.


‘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.”

The executive producer remains creatively energized by the possibilities of The Mandalorian‘s era, finding the chance to continue the characters’ stories for a significant amount of time exciting:

“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 Won’t Be Ending Any Time Soon

With four seasons of The Mandalorian and three spinoff series building to a crossover marking just a middle of the road for the broader Star Wars story, it’s safe to say the characters will be enduring for several more years. That’s not to say that there will be The Mandalorian season 12, someday; the way the storyline has been established, certain shows can end without closing the door on various participants completely. While the creative team has learned from the flaws of The Book of Boba Fett‘s turn into a Mando-centric story, Boba and Din Djarin meeting in spinoff shows is a concept that can prevail with all the characters involved in the era.

The knowledge that the Mandoverse narrative will be sticking around for a while is exciting, but the lack of a planned endpoint on the part of Favreau and Dave Filoni could be problematic. A similar course of action befell the Star Wars sequel trilogy, albeit with a far more disjointed brain trust. Favreau and Filoni are partners on all the shows set in this era, and their collaboration has allowed for projects like The Mandalorian season 4 and Ahsoka to ti together, though hopefully without being necessary viewing for one another.

The challenge will be ensuring the story develops organically, along with the character arcs. So long as it does so, and as long as the creative teams maintain a general sense of direction, the ongoing story of The Mandalorian and its tie-ins should remain satisfying. More will surely be learned when The Mandalorian season 3 launches on March 1.
