It was announced today that The Mandalorian will be making its broadcast debut ahead of the season premiere of the third season.
Everything we know about the television broadcast premiere is below. From what I can tell, this is a one-off broadcast. Unlike other series during the first part of the pandemic, do not expect the entire series to have a linear broadcast.
In celebration of Disney+ and Lucasfilm’s highly anticipated return to Mandalore, The Walt Disney Company will offer viewers the opportunity to experience the episode that started it all, when the series premiere of Star Wars: The Mandalorian makes its broadcast debut simultaneously across ABC, Freeform and FX. The three networks will air “Chapter 1: The Mandalorian” on Feb. 24 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EST/PST).
“Chapter 1: The Mandalorian”
In the lawless aftermath of the collapse of the Galactic Empire, an armored bounty hunter known only as the Mandalorian takes on a well-paying yet cryptic assignment.
Where to watch:
Friday, Feb. 24, 8:00-9:00 p.m. EST/PST
Available to stream now. Season three is available to stream beginning Wednesday, March 1.
About Star Wars: The Mandalorian
After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy, far from the authority of the New Republic.
About Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season Three
The journeys of the Mandalorian through the Star Wars galaxy continue. Once a lone bounty hunter, Din Djarin has reunited with Grogu. Meanwhile, the New Republic struggles to lead the galaxy away from its dark history. The Mandalorian will cross paths with old allies and make new enemies as he and Grogu continue their journey together.
The series stars Pedro Pascal, Katee Sackhoff, Carl Weathers, Amy Sedaris, Emily Swallow, and Giancarlo Esposito.
The directors of the eight-episode season three include Rick Famuyiwa, Rachel Morrison, Lee Isaac Chung, Carl Weathers, Peter Ramsey, and Bryce Dallas Howard.
