The Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian had another Primetime Emmys night without a win, but enough fans were still watching that many noticed the Television Academy included a surprising clip during its montage of Outstanding Drama Series nominees. This clip was a major spoiler to those who have not yet seen the second season. The Mandalorian won several other awards on Sunday night but was not nominated.
The Mandalorian lost Outstanding Drama Series to Netflix’s The Crown. Giancarlo Esposito was also up for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his performance as Moff Gideon. Jon Favreau was a nominee for Outstanding Directing for “Chapter 9: The Marshal” and Dave Filoni was nominated for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series for “Chapter 13: The Jedi.”

The show did much better earlier this month at the Creative Arts Emmys. Seven awards were won by the show, in addition to the seven that it won for Season 1. It was a big winner in the categories of stunt coordination, cinematography sound mixing, special effects stunt performance, prosthetic make-up, music composition, sound mixing, sound mixing, sound mixing, sound mixing, special effect, and cinematography.
The Mandalorian is set in the years after Return of the Jedi, and follows the titular bounty hunter, played by Pedro Pascal. In Season 1, Din Djardin met “The Child,” a 50-year-old alien from the same species as Yoda, which led to him being dubbed “Baby Yoda.” However, in Season 2, we learned that his real name is Grogu.
I cannot believe the Emmys used like the biggest spoiler from The Mandalorian for its clip HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

The season finale ended in stunning fashion, with a surprise appearance from an Original Trilogy character. The Emmys spoilt this revelation for anyone who didn’t yet know. Favreau created The Mandalorian, although the show drew heavily from the Star Wars animated shows Feloni created, especially with Rosario Dawson joining the cast as Ahsoka Tano.
Star Wars fans will be able to watch other live-action Star Wars shows before the third season. However, production is already underway. The Book of Boba Fett, starring Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen, will premiere in December. Ahsoka and Lando are also in development. Andor, a series following Diego Luna’s character from Rogue One, is set to be released in 2022, the same year Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series will be released. Another project called The Acolyte, set hundreds of years before the Star Wars films, is also in the works.
