Ahead of the highly-anticipated third season of The Mandalorian, creator and executive producer Jon Favreau has confirmed that he has already started writing the script for The Mandalorian Season 4, even though it hasn’t received an official order yet.

Favreau also opens up about the growing interconnecting stories with Lucasfilm’s Star Wars shows, and how the creative teams coordinate with each other to handle the difficult task of integrating the different narrative threads together.
“With television, we’re very lucky that we don’t have to rush things through into an hour-and-a-half, two hours,” Favreau told Cinema Blend of his writing process “We get to tell stories slowly. So now, as Dave [Filoni]’s doing Ahsoka, it’s very much informing the writing that I’m doing for [The Mandalorian] Season 4. It becomes more precise. I think that inevitably, no matter how simple you start, the story threads start to connect and weave and overlap, and with Dave Filoni’s deep understanding of everything around the time period, opportunities will always arise when we have story meetings and conversations about, ‘Well, you know what character would be here now.'”

The Mandalorian recently wrapped production on its third season, which is set to continue the adventures of Din Djarin, a lone Mandalorian gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy. Before the new season, Pedro Pascal’s Din Djarin previously appeared in last year’s The Book of Boba Fett spin-off.
As of now, Carl Weathers and Gian Carlo Esposito are the only returning cast members confirmed for the third season. Back to the Future star Christopher Lloyd has also joined the upcoming new season for a guest-starring role.
