Grogu and Mando make their Star Wars streaming return this week.
The Mandalorian season 3 kicked off on Disney Plus this week, with episode 1 dropping Wednesday. The live-action Star Wars show follows Grogu (aka Baby Yoda) and Mando as they travel through the galaxy, encountering new characters and familiar faces.
We'll get new episodes each week through April. Star Wars fans' Wednesdays will be packed this month, since season 2 of CGI animated series The Bad Batch is also rolling out on Wednesdays until the end of March.
Here's our full predicted release schedule for The Mandalorian on Disney Plus, and we'll adjust this if the company announces any changes or breaks.
New episodes generally arrive at 12 a.m. PT (3 a.m. ET/8 a.m. GMT/7 p.m. AEST), and they land on the service at the same time globally. The show's official account also has a tweet you can like for weekly episode reminders.
There two trailers for the third season of The Mandalorian. Lucasfilm released the first during Disney's D23 convention in September and a second one on Jan. 16.
The series happens between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, following the downfall of the Galactic Empire and the rise of the New Republic.
All the Star Wars movies and shows are on Disney Plus, so you can catch up as you wish.
The movies -- particularly Original Trilogy installments A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi -- will make The Mandalorian a much richer experience and give you context, but the show tells a largely self-contained story aside from a few cameos.
At the very least, you should watch seasons 1 and 2 of The Mandalorian, which aired on Disney Plus in 2019 and 2020, before diving into season 3.
This eight-episode Mandalorian spinoff -- which isn't nearly as engaging as the show that spawned it -- initially seemed to focus on Boba Fett, but Mando and Grogu pretty much hijacked the show for the last three episodes.
It revealed how the pair reunited after parting ways in The Mandalorian season 2 finale.
