Season 2 of The Mandalorian introduced us to a live-action Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) and her allies, Koska Reeves (Mercedes Moné) and Axe Woves (Simon Kassianides).
The latter was mysteriously absent in the finale, while we've seen neither of them since Luke Skywalker helped deal with Moff Gideon's Dark Troopers and - briefly - took Grogu into his care.
In The Mandalorian's season 3 premiere, "The Apostate," the returning Bo-Katan revealed that her allies abandoned her after she failed to return to them with the Darksaber. That presumably means Reeves and Woves too, though set photos have previously shown the two of them on set.
Unfortunately, those shots were far too blurry to say for sure, and Moné's repeated claims that she won't be part of this season have led to concerns we won't see the two fan-favourite characters again.
Some newly released season 3 merchandise, however, appears to confirm both of the Mandalorians will return in the coming weeks. This isn't a massive shocker and was to be expected in some ways, but it's nice to know we haven't seen the last of them! As for what role they'll play in this story, your guess is as good as ours right now.
Oh, and if you're wondering about the two mystery figures hidden in shadow, that's The Armorer and Din Djarin's N-1 Starfighter. We're not sure why they're being kept secret while Reeves and Woves are on full display, but that's just the way these things go sometimes.
"Still the best Star Wars TV show," we said in our recent review of the first two episodes, "The Mandalorian returns with everything fans love about the franchise and plenty of hints that this will be the most thrilling and revealing season yet. We’re ready for that Bo-Katan Kryze spin-off."
