It’s not been a great year. I think that’s an understatement and I’m sure that’s not news to you, but that’s the deal. 2020: Not so great.

However, as much of a Sarlaac Pit of a year it’s been, we’ve had a few bright spots of hope and things to look forward to; chief among them, the premiere of The Mandalorian season 2 on Disney+. Between rewatching the first season and the countless memes crisscrossing the Internet, fans of Mando, baby Yoda/The Child, and the extended Star Wars universe have had a balm to tide them over until the second season debuts.

We’ve known for a while that the next season would be coming this October, but not when. Today, StarWars.com ended our anticipation, announcing that season 2 would premiere Friday, October 30th, just in time for Halloween. We’re as happy as precious baby Yoda taking a ridey-ride.

In addition to the green bundle of joy and the series’ bounty hunter namesake, joining the cast includes such characters as Ahsoka Tano (played by Rosario Dawson), Bo-Katan Kryze (portrayed by Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff) and, yes, Boba Fett, brought to life by Temuera Morrison.

Strap in, gang. This is the way. The Mandalorian season 2 debuts October 30th on Disney+.
