Andor showrunner Tony Gilroy recently revealed how the new Star Wars series ultimately ends.

Andor is set to explore a new side of the Rebellion before Luke Skywalker blew up the Death Star. While the show’s cinematographer Adriano Goldman previously said that Andor was originally planned for five seasons, Lucasfilm has since confirmed it would span two.

How Does Andor End?

Both seasons of Andor will consist of 12 episodes. The first season begins five years before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, while season two will feature a time jump every three episodes leading directly into the 2016 film.

Rogue One introduces Andor as someone willing to do whatever it takes for the Rebellion. Andor showrunner Tony Gilroy revealed to The Playlist that the Disney Plus will eventually end where Rogue One kicks off:

“Yeah, I mean, our final scene of the show is no secret; it’s going to be [Cassian] walking across the tarmac to get in the ship to go to the Rings of Kafrene to go meet, Daniel Mays’ [Tivik informant character that Cassian kills in ‘Rogue One,’ because he’s become a liability], he’s going there.”

While Tony Gilroy might’ve spoiled how Andor ultimately wraps up before season one begins, he quickly compared the story to a show you might find on the History Channel and how it’s more about the “why”:

“I mean, you watch people watch History Channel shows and whatever. What’s that story? Well, you know how it’s going to turn out. And it’s still, ‘why did it happen?’”

Diego Luna first appeared as Cassian Andor in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Here is the synopsis for the film:

“Former scientist Galen Erso lives on a farm with his wife and young daughter, Jyn. His peaceful existence comes crashing down when the evil Orson Krennic takes him away from his beloved family. Many years later, Galen becomes the Empire’s lead engineer for the most powerful weapon in the galaxy, the Death Star. Knowing that her father holds the key to its destruction, Jyn joins forces with a spy and other resistance fighters to steal the space station’s plans for the Rebel Alliance.”

Directed by Gareth Edwards from a screenplay co-written by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy based on a story by John Knoll and Gary Whitta, Rogue One stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, with Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is available on Digital HD, Blu-Ray, and DVD, while Andor will hit Disney Plus on September 21, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the series and the future of Star Wars, and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more great video content!
