The Mandalorian's second season featured a return of a fan-favorite bounty hunter while setting him up for a spin-off series of his own. While Star Wars veteran Temuera Morrison is set to reprise Boba Fett (who also played his own clone father in the prequel trilogy), The Book of Boba Fett star doesn't know how long his series will stick around for.
Express UK took the opportunity to press Morrison about his upcoming stand-alone while the actor provided promotion for his sci-fi film Occupation: Rainfall (2020). It's been reported that The Book of Boba Fett wrapped filming on its first season, but leaves the future for additional seasons still unconfirmed. Disney is known for keeping the details of their projects heavily guarded, and Morrison stuck to secrecy. “You know the rules, nothing! Nothing!” Morrison teased Express UK when asked to share more details, “They’ll probably want to test the waters first, there’s been no talk about [a second season].”
The announcement of The Book of Boba Fett arrived as a stinger, or post-credits scene, woven into the end of The Mandalorian. Ming Na-Wen's Fennec Shand accompanies Fett as they ambush Jabba the Hutt's palace, slay Bib Fortuna, and conclude as Fett claims Hutt's unoccupied throne. Directors Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, and Bryce Dallas will return, and Favreau, Filoni, and Rodriguez are set to produce the series. It's not the only Star Wars spin-off on the way, but The Book of Boba Fett will land on Disney+ in December 2021.
