Entertainment Weekly

Disney announced Thursday development on another live-action Star Wars TV series, this one centered around Diego Luna’s doomed Rogue One character Cassian Andor.

The company says the drama is in the works for Disney’s new streaming service and follows the adventures of rebel spy during the formative years of the Rebellion and, of course, prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Luna has signed on to reprise the role of Andor.

“Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me,” Luna said in a statement. “I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey. We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply.”

The series is described as a “rousing spy thriller [that] will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire.”

A release date for the series has not yet been announced.
