The Mandalorian set to return as new wave of Star Wars series announced

Star Wars fans were delighted recently, after a new wave of series from the sci-fi universe were announced.

Over three days at the Star Wars Celebration event in California, popular series including The Bad Batch and The Mandalorian were confirmed to return.

That wasn't all, as a whole host of new series featuring characters from across the Star Wars universe are set to make their debut over the next year – and we cannot wait.

If that wasn't enough, it was also announced that the Star Wars Celebration would be returning in 2023 and would be making its way to the UK at London's Excel Centre in April next year.

Until then, here's the Star Wars series that we can expect to see make their Disney+ debut over the next year.

The Mandalorian: Series Three

The Mandalorian has been one of the biggest Star Wars successes since its release in 2019, and fans were delighted when a third series was recently confirmed at the Star Wars Celebration.

It will see Pedro Pascal return as Din Djarin, alongside Grogu, with the news drawing excitement on social media.

One fan shared love heart eye emojis as they said: "Yes!", while a second commented: "Let's go!"

While a trailer is still to be released for the series, if the previous episodes are anything to go by, it is sure to be another thrilling and edge of your seat show that we cannot wait to see.

Andor

Star Wars fans were first introduced to Rebel Alliance Spy Cassian Andor in the critically acclaimed film Rogue One, back in 2016.

Over six years after the character was introduced onscreen, the new Andor TV series is set to launch on Disney+ on August 31, 2022.

Billed as a 'rousing spy thriller', the series will once again star Diego Luna in the role, as it follows the Rebel Alliance's mission to restore hope to the Galaxy.

As well as Diego Luna, the series will also feature huge Hollywood names including Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller and Genevieve O'Reilly.

Tales Of The Jedi

Tales Of The Jedi is another animated series to make its debut on Disney+ in 2022, but an exact air date has yet to be announced.

However, we can expect to see the animated anthology in the autumn, with The Star Wars Celebration confirming that the six part series will focus on Sith Lord Count Dooku.

That's not all, as Liam Neeson will be returning to the series to voice Qui-Gon Jinn, who fans may remember was Count Dooku's padawan – before becoming a Master to the legendary Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Star Wars fans will also be able to learn the origins of the character Ahsoka as part of the series too.

It seems that excitement is already growing for the series with many fans asking "drop the trailer" on the Star Wars social media feed, while another fan said: "I can't wait for this."

The Bad Batch: Series Two

Another series to prove popular with Star Wars fans was The Bad Batch, with a second series being confirmed at the Star Wars Celebration.

Along with characters including Omega, the new series is set to see the return of major characters from the Star Wars universe including Emperor Palpatine and Commander Cody.

Similar to Tales Of The Jedi, a release date has not been confirmed for The Bad Batch, but is expected to air in autumn 2022.

After the trailer for the new series dropped on the Star Wars social media feed, fans commented underneath to share their love for the post, with one saying: "This is where the fun begins!"

Star Wars Visions: Volume Two

Star Wars Visions is set to return for a second volume, after its first series of animated episodes proved popular with fans.

Lucasfilm executive James Waugh said on the official Star Wars website that the programme will be "a celebration of the incredible animation happening all around the globe."

When the announcement was made at the Star Wars Celebration, fans flocked to the Star Wars social media pages to share their love for the news.

One fan said: "OMG," while a second added: "Yes I loved Visions Volume 1. It was great. I'm glad there's more."
