The synopsis for the series is:

After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.

Lucasfilm’s official announcement also revealed a handful of other stars cast in the upcoming show. Confirming previous speculation, Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) will be taking on the lead role. As per Lucasfilm, his character is “a lone Mandalorian gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy”.
