Over the course of its 12 episodes, Andor positive did ask loads of questions. It requested massive questions, like “what does it imply to insurgent” and “do the ends justify the means” in addition to loads of questions on human autonomy, the character of evil, the position of presidency and faith in our lives — I may go on. It additionally requested all of the Star Wars-y questions, leaving us questioning about plot parts and character moments too.

So, what did the Andor Season 1 finale reply? It answered no less than one burning query, that’s for positive. Any others must be answered in Season 2. But as for that burning query, you’ll need to search for it — and we are able to inform you the place to search out it.

Does the Andor Season 1 finale have a post-credits scene?

Yes — and that units Andor other than nearly each different season of Star Wars TV. This present’s all the time retaining you in your toes! And this isn’t a mid-credits scene, both. This scene unfolds after all the credit play. Keep studying to search out out what occurs on this scene. SPOILERS forward.

What occurs within the Andor season finale post-credits?

It begins with a closeup of a mechanized arm sparking and dealing on a bit of mysterious tech. Then we zoom out to see a trio of robots that I can solely describe as spider-dog-like all pivoting round an axis level, presumably welding or affixing it in place. The axis level exists on the assembly level of quite a lot of black, triangular panels; it actually appears kinda like a TIE wing. It isn’t.

The digital camera continues to zoom out, exhibiting that this one part of sections is only one part of many, many sections — each with extra four-legged robots carrying these joints to their vacation spot.

The joints are clearly what the prisoners on Narkina 5 had been constructing throughout their work shifts.

The digital camera continues to drag out additional and additional till we see the place all of that is going down. It seems that this little scene is ready on the skeletal, half-built eye of the Death Star. The prisoners on Narkina 5 had been constructing joints that join presumably hundreds of thousands of panels which can be inside the large, round level from which the Death Star’s planet-destroying laser blast erupts.

Interestingly, that’s the identical a part of the Death Star that we see get snapped into place throughout Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

(above). So it’s a pleasant little bit of symmetry, a call-forward, to see that iconic a part of the Death Star underneath development 5 years forward of Rogue One.

The proven fact that that is what they had been constructing on Narkina 5 makes loads of sense, contemplating that it’s already been established that regardless of the prisoners had been making needed to be essential to the Empire. It needed to be essential sufficient for them to assemble an elaborate jail system, and it must be essential sufficient for the Empire to exterminate an complete ground of employees relatively than have them doubtlessly revolt.

Will Cassian Andor discover out what he was constructing within the jail?

We’ll have to attend till Season 2 to search out out, though whether or not or not he ever finds out that he was constructing elements for the Death Star appears irrelevant. The jail itself, the way in which he was arrested for no purpose, the way in which his fellow prisoners had no likelihood of ever seeing the skin world once more, and the way in which the Empire tortured and murdered its prisoners — that was the purpose of the storyarc. It’s not like Cassian’s going to hate the Empire extra if he finds out that they had been constructing a part of the Death Star. They all knew they had been constructing one thing essential, and if it’s essential to the Empire, then it must be extremely evil.

When will Season 2 of Andor be launched on Disney+?

Unfortunately, it appears prefer it’s gonna be fairly a protracted wait earlier than we see Season 2. Filming on Season 2 is already underway, but it surely’s anticipated to final till summer season 2023. They do have 12 episodes to movie, in spite of everything, and we’re now all keenly conscious of the scale of these episodes. After that, showrunner Tony Gilroy has mentioned that he expects there to be a year’s worth of post-production, which implies we in all probability gained’t get Season 2 till someday in 2024.
