Andor Season 2’s Final Three Episodes Cover The Three Days Before Rogue One

Showrunner Tony Gilroy reveals that Andor Season 2's final three episodes cover the three days before Rogue One.

Showrunner Tony Gilroy reveals that Andor Season 2’s final three episodes cover the three days before Rogue One. We’ve known since the very inception of Andor that the idea was to follow Cass/Cassian right up until the beginning of Rogue One. Andor is the story of how Cass became the guy willing to give his life for the Rebellion. So whilst we always knew that first mission in Rogue One would be set up in Andor, it’s actually going to cover the final block of three episodes.

Fans of Andor S1 will remember the story was split in three episode chunks. Therefore, it makes sense the final three will be the direct lead in to Rogue One. Here is what Tony Gilroy had to say wen he spoke to Empire recently.

Now, with filming on Andor Season 2 – set to skip a year every few episodes – moving beyond the midway point, Gilroy has teased a little more of what to expect from the time-hopping final run, telling Empire that the final block of three episodes will specifically cover “the last three days before Rogue One”. And with a finite end point in view, no punches are being pulled. “The risks this season will take are very different,” promises Luna. In what way? “In every way,” says Gilroy. “Look, man, I’m not trying to make a career here; if anything I’m on the downhill side of a long career. But this is an opportunity. This is 1,500 pages of the most dynamic material in these people’s lives to deal with. We got it right the first time, and you don’t want to let your foot off the gas.”

“Some of its core ingredients are secrecy and paranoia and lack of trust and betrayal. So, how difficult is it to build a revolution?” questions Gilroy. “And what happens to the original gangsters, as other people get involved?”

To say I’m excited to see Andor Season 2 is an understatement. For me Andor was up there with the absolute cream as one of the best TV shows of last year period. It was also in my opinion the best Star Wars content we’ve had since Return of the Jedi. I love it, I can’t wait for Season 2, and I hope it’s great.

Despite the fact we know how Cass’s story concludes we have no idea about most of the other characters. What about Deedra, Silas, Luthen, Bix and the rest? That’s what a good show does, makes you care about the whole cast of characters. Not to mention Mon Mothma, who has been a revelation in this show for me played by Genevieve O’Reilly. Again, we know Mon’s ultimate fate is to lead the Rebellion successfully in the Civil War, but we seem a long way from that currently.

Bring it on, and someone please then offer Gilroy another chance to pitch an idea. Maybe he doesn’t have one, but I’d be telling him when he does to pick up my personal phone number and call me if I was Kathy Kennedy.

What do you think of his comments as Showrunner Tony Gilroy reveals that Andor Season 2’s final three episodes cover the three days before Rogue One? Thoughts below as always.
