The Mandalorian is on hiatus for the time being as the previously announced The Book of Boba Fett will be taking its fall slot on Disney+. Production on the show's third season will be reportedly begin in April of this year but a premiere date or window has not yet been announced. The Boys is in a similar boat with production gearing up to begin soon in Canada but no release date confirmed as well.
Star Wars and Disney+ are betting big on the television side of things with Andor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Acolyte, Ahsoka, Lando, and Rangers of the New Republic all in development. It remains to be seen if these shows will all get the same amount of awards glory as the flagship series for the streamer.
