Cassian Andor Series Ramping Up For Production
The co-writer of Rogue One, Tony Gilroy, is set to write the pilot and to direct multiple episodes. The series was supposed to get released in 2021, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, it’s really uncertain.
The untitled show focuses on Rebel agent Andor prior to the events of “Rogue One” in the early days of the Rebellion against the Empire. The show had been described as a “spy thriller” and is the next live-action Star Wars series to follow The Mandalorian. It was also previously announced that Alan Tudyk is set to reprise his role as K-2SO, Andor’s droid sidekick.
