‘Andor’ Season 2 Starts Filming Today and Shoots Till Next Summer

Earlier this month, we exclusively revealed That Tony Gilroythe acclaimed series Andor would begin filming on Season 2 this week, and we can also now reveal how long the crew will be shooting the final 12-episode season. Before the season 1 finale and the first day of shooting of season 2, Collider’s Steve Weintraub spoke to Gilroy and he told that season 2 will be taped until August 2023.

Most television series, especially those in the 12-episode zone, take about nine months to shoot, so it makes sense that Andor would follow a similar schedule. Of course, this doesn’t take into account the post-production aspect of the series, which will work on the episodes as they wrap up, and during the period between August and the Season 2 premiere date. Andor it took about three years to film and wrap up post-production, though the various filming constraints of the pandemic exasperated the project’s duration. During the interview, Gilroy also shared when he thinks Andor will be back on our television screens, and sadly, it’s nowhere near as soon as we’d like. Referring to the schedule for the first season, Gilroy explained, “If past is a predicate and we’re doing the same thing as before, it’s going to be on the same schedule. It’s coming out two years later.” He went on to say:


The only place you can speed up processes is in the mail, and the only way you can speed up in the mail is with money, and money is tight. So, I don’t really know, there should be some serious motivation in May or June or something. Someone should say, “Wow, we really need this and we’re willing to pay X.” Rogue One proved that if you throw money at it, you can post very, very quickly. It’s just very, very, very expensive.

It sounds like Cassian Andor’s collision course with the tragedy of Villain One won’t play on our screens until 2024 at the earliest. Hopefully Star Wars Celebration will provide something to accommodate fans next spring when the annual event is held in London, which is conveniently close to where Andor movies.

Looking forward to Andor Season 2

While the Season 1 finale will decide which characters fans will reunite with in Season 2, it’s safe to say that Diego Luna, Genevieve O’Reillyand Duncan Pow will return, as they all make it Villain One. Stellan Skarsgard will likely return, as he first revealed that the series would return for a second season. The fate of Adrian Arjona, Kyle Soller, Denise Gaw, Elizabeth Dula, Faye Marsayand Varada Sethu are not yet known, but hopefully their stories will have a chance to evolve further in Season 2. Gilroy also previously confirmed to Collider that Ariel Kleiman, Jan Metzand Alonso Ruizpalacios would join the series to direct blocks of episodes for the final season with his brother Dan Gilroy and Beau Willimon return to write together with newcomer Tom Bissell.

The season finale of Andor arrives this week, exclusively on Disney+. Check out local listings to see where you can tune in later this week for the first two episodes on ABC, Freeform, FX, and Hulu.
