Lucasfilm’s latest Disney+ series, Andor, has been the talk of the town amongst Star Wars fans since its premiere in September. Challenging all that we’ve previously come to expect from a galaxy far, far away, Andor is one of the most groundbreaking, daring, and real pieces of storytelling that the franchise has ever seen.
This morning, we learned that starting on November 23, which is the date the finale is due to premiere, the first two episodes of Andor will air on ABC, FX, Freeform, and Hulu!
Following Disney’s 2012 acquisition of Lucasfilm, Star Wars introduced its first live-action series, The Mandalorian, when Disney+ launched in late 2019. Since then, an entire array of shows for the franchise have come out or been announced, all of which have been exclusive to the streaming platform. Today’s surprising announcement bodes well for Andor, as it should help to draw in additional audiences for the spy thriller and Disney+’s other Star Wars offerings.
Andor‘s two-episode airing schedule for each network is as follows:
- ABC — November 23 @ 9 p.m. ET/PT
- FX — November 24 @ 9 p.m. ET/PT
- Freeform — November 25 @ 9 p.m. ET/PT
- Hulu – Available to stream from November 23 – December 7
Andor sees the return of Diego Luna as Cassian Andor, a character that was first introduced in the 2016 film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, in which he starred alongside Felicity Jones. The show explores a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s journey to discover the difference he can make. The series brings forward the tale of the burgeoning rebellion against the Empire and how people and planets became involved. It’s an era filled with danger, deception and intrigue where Cassian will embark on the path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero.
The series also stars Stellan Skarsgård, Genevieve O’Reilly, Kyle Soller, Denise Gough, Adria Arjona, and more.
The second season is set to begin production soon, and it will consist of 12 episodes that are broken into four year-long blocks leading directly up to the events of Rogue One.
