Brendan Wayne, who has been wearing the beskar armor for three seasons of The Mandalorian while Pedro Pascal has provided Din Djarin’s voice, has offered a disappointing update on Season 4. During an appearance on The Chatooine Show, the actor said he had not heard anything about more installments of the popular Disney+ Star Wars spinoff series.

Brendan Wayne Hasn’t Heard Anything About Season 4

“I know that we’re doing a movie for sure. That’s what I know,” Wayne said when asked if there would be a fourth season. The body double went on to confirm the production date of the aforementioned film, The Mandalorian & Grogu. “What I keep hearing everywhere is it’s [filming in] June,” he continued. “I think Jon [Favreau] said June.”

But He Does Know A Lot About The Movie


Wayne also revealed that he knows what the storyline will be, noting that the studio “couldn’t have greenlit something without a script.” Since an official synopsis has not been released, all the actor was able to offer is that The Mandalorian & Grogu would focus on its title characters. While the fate of Season 4 remains unknown, the series isn’t necessarily dead.

Still Hope For Season 4


Producer Dave Filoni previously said he is leaving all options on the table regarding The Mandalorian. “There’s so much spinning in the galaxy right now. You know me better than to commit to any one thing,” he said to the media at the 51st Saturn Awards. “No mind trick works on me,” he added, implying that he wouldn’t be giving away any information about the faraway galaxy just yet.

When The Mandalorian & Grogu was announced in January, fans assumed the film was essentially Season 4. However, subsequent reports clarified that The Mandalorian Season 4 is still in development at Lucasfilm, with no production or plot details disclosed. Katee Sackhoff, who portrays Bo-Katan Kryze in the Disney+ series, hinted at more seasons by referencing a potential return in November 2023.

The Mandalorian Is A Huge Success

Created by Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian follows the adventures of the titular bounty hunter whose real name is Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal). The show is set in the aftermath of the fall of the Galactic Empire but before the rise of the First Order. The plot revolves around the Mandalorian’s journey across the galaxy as he takes on various bounties to earn a living.

However, his life takes a dramatic turn when he is tasked with retrieving what appears to be a standard bounty, but he turns out to be a Force-sensitive infant of the same species as Jedi Master Yoda, referred to as The Child (and later Grogu). Instead of delivering the Child to his employer, the Mandalorian decides to protect and keep him safe from those who seek to harm him.

Season 3 Received Mixed Reviews

Jon Favreau drew inspiration from various sources when developing The Mandalorian,  including classic Westerns and samurai films, to create a unique blend of genres within the Star Wars universe. The show’s production values are notably high, with cutting-edge visual effects, intricate world-building, and attention to detail in costume and set design.

The series also incorporates elements from Star Wars lore, expanding upon established mythology while introducing new characters and storylines. Since its debut in 2019, The Mandalorian has enjoyed considerable success, although Season 3 received a mixed reception. The cast also includes Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon and producer Dave Filoni as the New Republic human pilot, Trapper Wolf.

All three seasons of The Mandalorian are available on Disney+.
