The eighth and final episode of the Disney+ show "The Mandalorian" dropped Friday at midnight, and the Taika Waititi-directed chapter, titled "Redemption," hints at future adventures of Pedro Pascal's helmeted hero.
Show creator Jon Favreau has just announced that we'll have to wait for nearly a year before we see a season two.
In a tweet featuring a rather svelte version of the pig-faced Gammoreans, who acted as guards for Jabba the Hutt in "Return of the Jedi," Favreau writes, "Season 2 of #TheMandalorian -- coming Fall 2020."

That's a mighty long wait for fans, who made the show one of the biggest hits on the new Disney+ streaming service, and made the show's breakout character, lovingly nicknamed "Baby Yoda," one of the holiday's most sought-after gifts and biggest online memes.
