Is Bill Burr in The Mandalorian Season 3? At the moment, the actor isn’t saying anything other than that he hopes to be back at some point. Burr recently discussed his role in The Mandalorian with Screen Rant and of course talk turned to whether he’d be back for Season 3? As you’d expect Burr wasn’t exactly eager to confirm anything.
“Oh, I hope so. Jon Favreau and Rick Famuyiwa, who wrote both of my episodes that I did — to be a small part of something that big that is that good that means so much to so many people. I’m obviously not allowed to say anything other than I just absolutely love being on that show and I hope it continues and if it doesn’t, I’ve had a blast.”
I get the feeling from this answer that Burr is back on Season 3. After all, after how great Burr was in Season 2, how can they not bring back Mayfield again? There was some speculation amongst fans that Mayfield could spin-off into Rangers of the New Republic when that show was announced. However given the firing of Gina Carrano, and the current ‘on hiatus’ status for that show, it seems unlikely. I just can’t imagine Favreau and Filoni not seeing the value of continuing Mayfield’s character arc.
I mean I liked Mayfield/Burr in Season 1, but I would not have cared had he not come back. However the arc they gave Burr in Season 2 and the chemistry he has with Mando for me make him an important character. As a fan, I want to know the rest of his story. I can’t be alone and that therefore cannot be ignored. Similarly I found that I didn’t need to see Greef Carga in Season 2. However after seeing what they did with the character and how Weathers grew into the role, I love Greef now. Of course, Carl Weather has been a little more forthcoming about his Season 3 involvement. I just hope he is joined by Bill Burr as Mayfield. In fact, those two characters would be fun to put together.
Hell, for all we know Burr could be laughing inside because he shows up in The Book of Boba Fett? There’s been no rumors to that, but we still know very little about the next Star Wars show.
What do you think, is Bill Burr in The Mandalorian Season 3? Would you be disappointed like me if he’s not? Thoughts below as always.
