Next month Pedro Pascal will grace Disney Plus again for another galactic adventure. In an interview with BFM TV (via Twitter), Jon Favreau confirmed that The Mandalorian season 4 is already written and awaiting production to begin. A fourth season is not confirmed by Disney or Lucasfilm.
The writing for the unconfirmed season 4 of The Mandalorian began during post-production of season 3. For the filmmaker, it is to make sure it fits with the upcoming projects, including Ahsoka and Skeleton Crew. His Star Wars partner Dave Filoni works on the Pascal-led series and will be the showrunner and lead writer of Ahsoka, which Favreau produces. By pre-writing a season of a show, they can “keep in mind” what is happening in the universe.
“We have to know where we’re going to tell a fully formed story. We had it mapped out,” he said. “To understand what’s happening on other shows, or even Skeleton Crew, all take place within the same Star Wars time period.”

Ahsoka sees the animated character come to life in live-action for a standalone series. Rosario Dawson first brought the character to live-action in the second season of The Mandalorian. The series will take place around the time of the show with Pascal, the same as the Jude Law-led series Skeleton Crew.
