Spoilers ahead for The Mandalorian season 2 finale!
The Mandalorian season 2 just ended with a bombshell announcement. In a post-credit scene, it is revealed that Boba Fett returned to Jabba’s former palace and claimed the throne for himself alongside Fennec Shand. Then a title card pops up promising that The Book of Boba Fett is coming in December 2021. Indeed, we are finally getting a Boba Fett series.
Boba Fett, as portrayed by Temuera Morrison, who originally played Jango Fett in Attack of the Clones, has been a part of the series this season alongside Pedro Pascal’s Mando. Fett was a huge part of several episodes, including the finale of season 2. But it remained unclear just how much of a role the fan-favorite bounty hunter would have in the franchise in the future. The post-credit scene makes it inescapably clear that there is a whole lot more from the character on the way next year.
For now, there is no word on casting or plot details for The Book of Boba Fett. We’ll be sure to keep you posted as any further information is made available. For now, The Mandalorian season 2 finale is available now on the Disney+ streaming app.
