Baby Yoda is back on Oct. 30.


The Mandalorian will return to Disney Plus on Oct. 30, the company revealed on Wednesday. The smash-hit Star Wars show introduced the world to Baby Yoda as the streaming service launched last year.

"This is the day. New episodes start streaming Oct. 30 on #DisneyPlus. #TheMandalorian," it tweeted. 

Production on the second season wrapped in early March, meaning it avoided the coronavirus lockdown that delayed many other movies and shows, and Disney CEO Bob Chapek later confirmed that "there'll be no delay."

If you're looking to catch up on the show, or just see why the world fell in love with Baby Yoda, all eight episodes of the first season are on Disney Plus now and our first trailer of Mandalorian Season 2 is out now.

Disney Plus is the company's streaming service which is available for $7 per month or $70 per year; it can also be bundled with Disney's ESPN Plus and Hulu services. Unlike the upcoming Mulan premiere which costs an additional $30 for US viewers (who don't wish to wait until Dec. 4), The Mandalorian is folded into the base price of the service.
