Katie Sackhoff cast in The Mandalorian Season 2 as Bo-Katan

May 12th, 2020 by Marc Comments

More great news from the world of The Mandalorian season 2 as another cracking piece of casting has been revealed.

Word has come in that Battlestar Galactica star Katee Sackhoff has been cast in the second season as none other than Bo-Katan Kryze, the badass female Mandalorian warrior from Star Wars Clone Wars and Rebels.

We learned last night that season 2 will not be delayed because of that damned virus (here) and it seems Sackhoff filmed her role in February before the world locked down.

Sackhoff has made a career out of being a tough, beautiful woman with her role as Starbuck in BSG but she has gone on to star in Riddick, The Flash and more, so she’s definitely a fan favourite here at FTN HQ.

B-Katan was a lieutenant on Death Watch on Mandalore, answering only to Pre Vizla, the owner of the Darksaber but once Darth Maul took over Death Watch and took the Darksaber for himself (the Darksaber appeared at the end of season 1 of The Mandalorian), Bo-Katan left the Death Watch and recruited the Jedi and Ahsoka Tano to come to Mandalore and take it back from Maul.

So it’s obvious how she, Ahsoka, Sabine and Captain Rex could all fit into the story of The Mandalorian, since in Rebels Sabine Wren passed the Darksaber to Katan… so it’s clear that The Mandalorian aims to explain why Moff Gideon had the weapon in season one.

It really seems that Dave Filoni, showrunner on Clone Wars and Rebels and a major creative force on The Mandalorian, has set out a story that he aims to wrap, or at least keep telling, in The Mandalorian.

This is awesome news and it’s going to be very, very exciting seeing all the Mandos we know and love coming together… I’m just wondering where Boba Fett fits into all this.

The Mandalorian Season 2 is coming in October… let me know how excited you all are.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
