The Mandalorian season 3 will kick off in 2023, and the hints at where the shiny dad/green son duo’s story will go after their earlier this year.

Let’s take a look at where Mando’s adventures, which take place five years after , are likely to go next. We’ll be diving into full SPOILER territory for the first two seasons and The Book of Boba Fett, so be warned if you aren’t up to date.

There’s some tension between Mando and Bo-Katan at first, but a mutual respect soon develops.


Grogu is along for the ride, and still ridiculously cute. Former Mandalorian leader Bo-Katan Kryze has a regal moment sitting on a throne similar to the one in Mandalorian capital Sundari. (This room in the final episodes of The Clone Wars.) Mando allies the Armorer and Greef Karga will also return.

Action sequences included massive Imperial Star Destroyers and suggested that Mando will lead some of his fellow Mandalorians into battle.

During season 2, Mando (real name Din Djarin) also ran into another group of Mandalorians, led by Bo-Katan.
