Tony Gilroy, the creator of Andor, claims that if the appropriate post-production money is obtained, the show may return sooner than initially envisaged. 

Gilroy told us earlier this month that Season 2 filming will start this week and that it would wrap up in August 2023, making it unlikely that the show would return before the end of the year.  

A series like Andor requires significant VFX work, and accelerated post-production timelines come with a hefty price tag. 

While some series are able to wrap on filming, jump right into post-production, and get episodes on television within the span of a few months. 

As a prequel to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Cassian Andor season 1 concentrated on his early years before to the Rebellion. 

The story has primarily focused on Cassian, although Andor has also explored the lives of other significant Rebellion figures.

The show has received overwhelmingly positive reviews, and Andor was renewed early before it ever debuted on Disney+

Gilroy has already started talking about his plans for the Andor series’ future, despite the fact that the first season finale has not yet aired.  

Gilroy claims in an interview with Collider that the timing of season 2 will probably follow that of the first season.

He could imagine a scenario in which it returns sooner, but it would necessitate a significant adjustment.
