Is The Book of Boba Fett Season 2 happening? According to one claim, it’s in development. The rumor comes from Daniel RPK on his Patreon service. Now, I tend to find Daniel’s Patreon releases are less verified than the things he posts directly on social media. I also have found in the past that while he has a great hit rate for Marvel Studios and Sony projects, less so with Star Wars news. Maybe we will have to wait and see?
I know some fans are slightly surprised by the suggestion. Mainly because I don’t think The Book of Boba Fett was that good. Sure, it had probably the best 40 minutes of Star Wars since Return of the Jedi in 1983. However Boba Fett wasn’t in that one, and as far as the rest of the show went, it was a bit of a bore fest.
I would say the episodes, especially those directed by Robert Rodriguez looked cheap. I think fans had an idea of a show building Boba Fett up as a crime boss, and that’s not really on show very much.
As for any official information, the only thing I can point to is some recent comments from star Ming-Na Wen at a convention. I don’t have the exact quote to hand any longer, but Wen said she didn’t know if there would be a Season 2, but she certainly hopes there will be. In other words, it tells nothing. If she knew she couldn’t say, and if she doesn’t it might just mean she’s not been contacted yet.
I’m in no way against The Book of Boba Fett Season 2. However I would want a better story and overall a better show than we had in Season 1.The scope just needs to be expanded. Let’s really have a show about the criminal underworld in Star Wars. Additionally spending some time away from Tatooine would be beneficial. Fett could travel to Nal Hutta or many places associated with organised crime that as yet we’ve not seen in live-action Star Wars. Now Fett has control of his own territory he needs to start coming up against threats from outside.
I think most fans were kinda hoping that Crimson Dawn would be the real villains behind the campaign against Fett in Season 1. However it ended up just being the Pykes. Oh, and while we are at it, can we get the Vespa crew’s rides replaced with someone a bit more gangster looking. I’d rather see biker gangs than Mods if it’s all the same. Just call it an upgrade from Don Fetteone to his crew.
Sadly I think we need to keep Rodriguez away from behind the camera on this one. His episode of Mando S2 was good, and felt more Desperado. Whereas Boba Fett felt more Spy Kids and that’s never going to impress me. The Boba Fett show should be more mature, not less.
