Alan Tudyk Says K-2SO Wont Be In Andor Season One, But There Are Plans For The Character

    While Star Wars: Andor was initially announced as a reunion between Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and K-2SO (Alan Tudyk), the latter's actor says that he won't be appearing in the first season. This is interesting because it implies that not only was he written out of the first season, but that there are multiple seasons planned for the Rogue One prequel.





    Talking to Collider, Alan Tudyk said that he wouldn't be in Andor's first season. However, he does know that he's got a future with the character in other seasons:
    In addition, he also joked that he might have a problem doing the motion-capture for his character if the second season takes too long to film, given that he's getting older and it's harder to do motion-capture on stilts:
    This is interesting because it indicates that unlike Obi-Wan Kenobi, which is currently planned as a limited series, Andor will have multiple seasons. Andor initially had trouble getting off the ground at Disney+, with rewrites occurring well before the start of filming likely indicating that our favorite droid sidekick had to wait to be reintroduced in favor of focusing the narrative on the ex-Separatist turned Rebel spy. It's been speculated that the recent set that was built in the United Kingdom is meant for Andor, and said set is expected to be in use for more than one year, so it's possible that they've internally greenlit a second season and it should film not too long after the first one wraps production. If so, then K-2SO's Andor debut won't be too far behind!



    Disney+'s slate of Star Wars shows include the ongoing live-action shows The Mandalorian and its multiple spin-offs - The Book of Boba Fett, Ahsoka, and Rangers of the New Republic - alongside Andor and The Acolyte. Live-action shows serving as limited series include Obi-Wan Kenobi and Lando. The animated slate includes The Bad Batch, Visions, and A Droid Story. The first season of Andor is currently slated to arrive in Summer 2022.

    I'm not too terribly surprised that Andor may get more seasons.

    It's the only show in its timeline (besides Kenobi) right?

    I think the post ROTJ stuff is probably gonna all build on each other more (with some likely only getting a single season, with crossovers to follow), with Andor being more of its own thing.

    While the first half of this sentence sounds like a bad thing, the key is definitely the latter part. I think it's a good thing they've expanded the show into multiple seasons and if K2's role gets shifted because of it, no big deal. I'm actually looking forward to seeing Andor before and after K2, and how their relationship develops.

    My (complete baseless) guess: Andor season 1 will end with a cliffhanger where Imps has captured Cassian, with a KX series droid (and unspeaking K-2SO of course) as his prison cell guard, making the Rebellion seem doomed. Something like that. And then K-2SO will be reprogrammed early in in season 2, duringe the opening get-out-of-jail action arc :)

    Don't you have to be in something first before you can get written out of it? Next we'll be hearing Dr. Evazan and Ponda Baba are getting written out of the show too!!;)

    Kinda disappointing news but I'll let season one play out and see how the new characters develops along plus their chemistry with Andor.

    For me, the interaction between the robot and Andor WAS my interest in the show...
    I’ve got my fingers crossed that this is one heck of an “espionage story” show.

    But... we'll still him play other security droids, right? Give the audience a little bait and switch... please...
    He was the best part of Rogue One.

    As much as I really love K2 and the chemistry with Cassian, there is no need to hurry.
    Season 1 will have plenty of surprises. Maybe Alderaan, prequel characters, old well known rebel secret bases...
    I guess they meet each other later than we thought. Easy to understand.
    I certainly think K2 will appear later on the show so at this time am not worried.

    K2, what a droid! Love it!
