THE MANDALORIAN Star Temuera Morrison Shares An Update On THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT Season 2 Plans

The Mandalorian star Temuera Morrison has talked more about The Book of Boba Fett potentially receiving a second season, but it's not sounding good for the fan-favourite bounty hunter turned crime boss.

As we write this, there's still nothing to suggest that Lucasfilm has renewed The Book of Boba Fett for a second season. As a result,  it's looking increasingly unlikely that the iconic bounty hunter's story will continue in his own series. 

Actor Temuera Morrison hasn't shied away from criticising the way he was left on the shelf when The Mandalorian season 3 rolled around and once went so far as to say Din Djarin taking centre stage in The Book of Boba Fett played a role in "ruining" the spin-off. 

While harsh, it's a valid observation in some respects because an entire episode of the show was devoted to Din and Grogu, with both characters - and their heartfelt reunion - largely overshadowing Fett during the finale. 

That's not to say the series didn't have its fair share of issues, though; while Boba's attempt to take over Tatooine's criminal underworld was enjoyable, The Book of Boba Fett's villains were forgettable and the story behind his return perhaps softened the character too much (the less said about that biker gang, the better). 

During a recent convention appearance, Morrison was asked about working with Fennec Shand actress Ming-Na Wen and said, "Both her and I wanted to work pretty hard in the hope that they might carry on [and] do a 2 and a 3 and a 4 and a 5 and a 6 and a 7."

"I've been trying to nudge them in that direction too," he said of the show's possible return. "It needs more nudging, but anyway..."

Morrison doesn't seem overly positive about The Book of Boba Fett receiving a second season and, with Disney looking to slash streaming costs, there's a good chance he'll be relegated to a supporting role in The Mandalorian and Grogu movie. 

In some respects, it makes sense for the show to remain a limited series. After all, it finally solved the mystery of how the bounty hunter survived the events of Return of the Jedi and ultimately solidified his place as Tatooine's new leader.

While there was room to tell more stories, the response to the spin-off was a little tepid and the way things played out wasn't what many fans wanted to see from a character who was arguably at his best as a mysterious bounty-hunting badass. 

We are, however, eager to learn what became of Cobb Vanth and what Fett's continued role in watching over Tatooine means for this corner of the Galaxy Far, Far Away moving forward.
