All good things must come to and end, and so it is that we must start to accept the fact that The Mandalorian will have to wrap up sooner or later. I know, it hurts to even think about right now - but the end is nigh, apparently.
The excellent Disney Plus Star Wars show has run for two seasons so far, with a third season expected to release at some point next year after The Book Of Boba Fett arrives in December. But where does the show go after that? Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) has already completed his mission and handed off Baby Yoda/Grogu to be trained by Luke Skywalker.
As you've probably heard by now, Pascal is likely to be busy juggling his role in The Mandalorian with his new role as Joel in HBO's The Last Of Us:
We're assuming that events will once again throw Din and Grogu together again, but the pair can't keep exploring the galaxy taking on sidequests forever... can they? As much as I'd love them to, I'm not sure The Mandalorian's current premise can be sustained indefinitely.
That's why I'm not massively surprised at the new claims that The Mandalorian will end after its fourth season, with certain story threads and characters being picked up in a new, or at the very least rebranded, show. According to Jordan Maison. editor-in-chief at Cinelinx, the current story will essentially "end" after season four but "morph into a new show" that follows the same characters.
It's unclear exactly how this would work - or why Disney would want to change the name - but Maison suggested (as a hypothetical) that the show could become "The Mandalore" in reference to the ongoing fight between the remaining Mandalorians for control of their home planet.
The end of season two certainly implied this conflict will play a big role going forward, so perhaps we could see Din elevated to the ruler of an entire planet. That's a heck of a promotion, and would certainly warrant a title change. Much of this is clearly up in the air right now, so take it with an extra large pinch of salt until we know more.
