Ant-Man’s Peyton Reed and Alita’s Robert Rodriguez both helmed season 2 instalments…

A surprising guest cast has been building for The Mandalorian‘s second season. After Rosario Dawson joined the series as Jedi Ahsoka Tano, Terminator and Aliens star Michael Biehn has also been added to the cast as a bounty hunter. Biehn’s last notable appearance in a big project was in 2007 in Robert Rodriguez’s Grindhouse movie, Planet Terror, and wouldn’t you know it? Rodriguez is one of The Mandalorian‘s season 2 directors. Can we safely put two and two together and assume Biehn will be in one of Rodriguez’s episodes?
Starring Game of Thrones actor Pedro Pascal, The Mandalorian has been one of the most talked-about TV series since it first launched with the Disney+ streaming service back in November 2019, introducing an immediately-iconic character in the form of ‘The Child’, or ‘Baby Yoda’ as we continue to call him (he’s not Yoda).
Jon Favreau’s pricey Star Wars show will return in October, and UK viewers are hoping that the episodes will be released in a timely fashion on the digital platform here, unlike season 1.
