The New Characters

Season 3 of The Mandalorian looks to bring some brand new characters into the mix. From the looks of the casts listed on IMDB and various reports, here are some of the characters we can expect to see in the new season.

Mayfeld: The notorious character is a former Imperial sharpshooter, who, following the Empire’s defeat, moved on to become a mercenary for hire. He will be played by the highly acclaimed actor and MCU alum, Bill Burr.

Boba Fett: After his resurrection in The Mandalorian season 2, Boba Fett is set to make his return in Season 3. He will be portrayed by Temuera Morrison, who previously played the role of Jango Fett and the clones in the prequel films.

Cara Dune: Played by Gina Carano, this former rebel shock trooper is expected to return for the new season.

Heckler: Played by the hilarious SNL alum, Fred Armisen, Heckler is a cantankerous and skillful engineer who believes in the might of the Empire.

The Season 3 Plot

The narrative of season 3 of The Mandalorian has yet to be revealed, however, it is easy to speculate based on the events of the previous two seasons.

Season 3 looks to concentrate on “The Great Purge,” as hinted in the post-credits of the season 2 finale. The show is also expected to further explore the relationship between the Mandalorian, Din Djarin, and Baby Yoda, as well as the continued hunt for other Mandalorians that have ended up on various planets across the galaxy. The plot will also look to explain the origin of Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ stormtroopers, the Empire’s “child soldiers.”

We can probably also expect Boba Fett to have a significant role in the new season, especially since he is the de facto possession of Baby Yoda and is likely to accompany Din Djarin during his search for the remaining Mandalorians.

Cara Dune is also likely to be a constant presence throughout the season. Following the downfall of the Empire, she has become an ally of Din Djarin, and her quest against Imperial remnants could bring her to paths that Din Djarin hasn’t yet explored.

Season 3 of The Mandalorian promises to be an intense, astrologically rich, and action-packed chapter in the Star Wars universe. With Jon Favreau at the helm and a talented team of directors and writers, the show is sure to be a hit. The new season stands to bring some exciting plot twists, along with a few new characters, making it a must-watch for every Star Wars fan.
