    The second season of The Mandalorian saw the return of a fan-favorite Mandalorian, Bo-Katan, who made her live-action debut in Chapter 11: The Heiress. She first appeared in The Clone Wars, then briefly in Star Wars: Rebels, with Battlestar Galactica actress Katee Sackhoff voicing the character. She was brought back to play the live-action incarnation of the character in Favreau's show, and the fan response was huge. The second season ended with her right next to Din Djarin and the villain of the show, Giancarlo Esposito's Moff Gideon, which led many fans to speculate that she'll be back for the third season.



    Earlier this week, Looper published an interview with Katee Sackhoff in which she talked about the character, her history with it, and what could be coming next. Here we present some parts of the long interview, in which she talked about much more than her Star Wars role, so if you're interested in checking it out, including some of her answers about Star Wars we left out, make sure to head over there.



    Sackhoff was first asked about her audition process, which happened many years ago for the animated show Star Wars: Rebels. As she's talked about before, her joining The Mandalorian was more an offer by Jon Favreau than a casting process. Here's what she said:

    This was the first time she was playing Bo-Katan in live-action, though. That's a pretty big leap, as she explained:



    There were a lot of lengthy conversations taking place on the set of The Mandalorian between showrunner Jon Favreau, executive producer Dave Filoni, and her, about everything related to Bo-Katan. Sackhoff wanted to know everything about her to make it part of her performance. She said:

    Sackhoff also gave us a bit of behind-the-scenes of The Mandalorian, briefly describing the shooting process. Apparently, they are shooting multiple episodes at the same time, as we suspected given the technology in place and the camaraderie between the directors that we saw in the Disney Gallery episodes from the first season. She also said that her part took a while to shoot, and she probably wrapped around mid-February of 2020. She also talked about working in the Volume:

    One of the highlights of the season finale of The Mandalorian was the scene in which Cara Dune, Fennec Shand, Bo-Katan, and Koska Reeves took on the Imperial cruiser by themselves, with the audience only realizing after the fact that they were four strong females leading the way. That was a powerful moment for everybody, including Sackhoff herself.

    Then, the big question happened - what's next? The answer is quite simple, actually:



    This is not the first time she has given this answer, but it is rather surprising that this close to The Mandalorian going back into production, it is still the same. Back in January, she appeared in Sith Council for an extensive interview, where she told our friend Kristian Harloff the exact same thing - she knows as much about Bo-Katan's presence in the future of The Mandalorian, or Star Wars for that matter, as the rest of us.



    While we currently don't know when the show will begin shooting season 3, it is expected that it will happen soon, so the fact that she doesn't know anything about it could be telling. It is also possible that after one of the main characters exited the show, production has been delayed for a few months while they rework the storyline to take her out. Whatever the case may be, the Star Wars filming machine is running full steam ahead, with Andor currently shooting London since late November, The Book of Boba Fett about to wrap, and Obi-Wan Kenobi about to start. These are most likely not the only shows that will be filming this year, but we'll know for sure as the year progresses.



    For now, the next live-action show coming our way will be The Book of Boba Fett at the end of the year, which will be the next chapter in The Mandalorian storyline, and will feature both Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen reprising their respective roles. Ming-Na Wen's voice will also be featured in the upcoming The Bad Batch, starting on May 4 on Disney Plus.

    Filming for Season 3 began April 5th. That was confirmed. While not confirmed, I've also heard that they are filming back-to-back seasons.

    Ah. Ok. So I assume this season 3 will release maybe Jan next year. Thats fair to be honest. I have also heard December might be an option. Anyway, yeah I hope back to back seasons are filmed. That’d be cool.

    Not that there was really any doubt, but Katee Sackhoff confirmed that she is in Season 3.
