Andor Seasons 3 And 4 – Why They Need To Happen
Recently, Disney wrapped up the first season of the Star Wars spinoff show Andor. And what a season it was! The show is full of emotion, action, and tense moments. In the series, we see Diego Luna’s titular character Cassian Andor as he begins to work with the Rebellion. Unlike other Star Wars shows, the focus is on real people suffering under the Empire’s oppression. There’s no Jedi, no mysterious Force, and no Sith to deal with. Instead, we see the attempts of ordinary people to fight against the Empire. As such, many fans have praised the show’s more “realistic” portrayal of oppression and Rebellion. The first season had twelve episodes, and the second will be the same. However, many fans have called for Andor seasons 3 and 4. Here’s why it should go ahead.
Originally, the show was meant to have several seasons. However, lead actor Diego Luna refused to sign on for such a long time and committed to only doing two seasons. So, Disney agreed and made Andor a limited series for 24 episodes. However, many fans and viewers of the show have praised it for being so different from other Star Wars mediums.
Naturally, fans have enjoyed seeing how the villains are not completely evil, just cogs in a machine eager to better themselves at the expense of others. Similarly, the heroes are not overpowered. Instead, they are scared and ordinary people doing their best to fight back against injustice. Instead of a huge battle, the show centers on espionage and secrecy. Additionally, the show is much more outrightly political than other Star Wars stories. So, this would make Andor seasons 3 and 4 seem the right choice.
Andor Seasons 3 and 4 Characters
Of course, some issues could prevent Disney from making Andor seasons 3 and 4. For example, we already know what happens to several characters in the show, including the titular Andor. In Rogue One, we saw him sacrifice himself for the Rebellion by sending the Death Star plans to Princess Leia. Similarly, Genevieve O’Reilly’s character of Mon Mothma has a clear storyline that we know about. So, it would not be easy to feature these characters in further show seasons.
However, there are numerous individuals whom we could still learn about in additional seasons. For example, Adria Ajorna’s Bix and Stellan Skarsgård’s Luthen both have a lot of stories left. Similarly, there’s plenty we could learn about Faye Marsay’s Vel. We haven’t yet begun to see the relationship between Alan Tudyk’s droid K-2SO and Andor develop.
Currently, Andor is still just a member of the Rebellion. There’s a while before he becomes the leader we saw in Rogue One. Thanks to the show’s slower pace than the movies, this gives more time for the characters to develop. Creating Andor seasons 3 and 4 would give even more space for Andor’s character to grow. Additionally, we could also see how other individuals like Forest Whitaker’s Saw Gerrera, Andy Serkis’s Kino Loy, and Fiona Shaw’s Maarva develop.
The Empire and Rebellion
Also, more seasons of the show would further help show the damage the Empire has done to the galaxy. We could learn more about ordinary citizens and what it’s like to live under this oppression. Additionally, the show could show us how some of these people react to the Rebellion. Do they all think the Rebellion is right, or would some rather stay quiet? Andor seasons 3 and 4 could show us how hard life is for these people. We get to see the initial seeds of the Rebellion form and how people even began fighting the oppressive Empire in the first place. Instead of looking at individuals with special powers, the show is grounded in reality.
Naturally, this is something completely different for Star Wars. Of course, we wouldn’t want all Star Wars mediums to focus on this, but it’s certainly fresh air for the franchise. So, we’d certainly welcome Andor seasons 3 and 4.
You can catch the first season of Andor on Disney+ now. Currently, there’s no set release date for season 2, although it’s speculated to be in 2024.
