With the finale episode of The Book of Boba Fett now available for streaming on Disney+, Star Wars fans and those who love the series saw a satisfying ending to the bounty hunter’s seven-episode run. Then again, because of how there will always be room for a Star Wars series in the hearts of fans worldwide, there is a reason to wonder about the possibility of The Book of Boba Fett getting a new season. So, will there be a season 2 of The Book of Boba Fett?
There is yet to be any word regarding a possible second season for The Book of Boba Fett because Disney is yet to renew it. It is possible that a second season will happen if the demand is high or if there is a good plot to focus on. But it is also possible for Fett to return to a supporting role in the future.
As of this writing, we can neither confirm nor deny the possibility of a second season for The Book of Boba Fett because Disney has been silent about this. There is a good chance that Lucasfilm and Disney are still looking at the numbers and the possible plots to see if a second season is in the books. Then again, we are inclined to believe that Boba Fett and his crew are likely to return to appear in future Star Wars shows.
Is There Going To Be A Season 2 Of The Book Of Boba Fett?
The Book of Boba Fett is a relatively short series for the legendary Star Wars bounty hunter because it only ran for seven episodes, which isn’t half of the total episodes of The Mandalorian. However, we did see a satisfying ending to the series during the finale, as Boba Fett inevitably crossed paths with Cad Bane and won his war against the Pyke Syndicate.
For seven episodes, The Book of Boba Fett built up a great battle between Boba Fett’s gotra and the Pyke’s forces stationed on Tatooine, as the bounty hunter was looking to establish himself as the sole underground lord in Mos Espa and quite possibly the entire planet.
With the help of Din Djarin and a few other notable Star Wars characters, Boba Fett was now the uncontested daimyo of Mos Espa and had sent a message to the Pyke Syndicate that Tatooine was closed for business. He even killed his old mentor, Cad Bane, in the process of establishing his name on the planet.
In that regard, we saw a satisfying end with Boba Fett having a touching moment with the rest of the members of his gotra, who he respected and saw as friends and family members instead of underlings. Unlike other shows, there weren’t any cliffhangers that could’ve opened up the plot of the next season. The ending was complete and satisfying as it was.
Given the fact that there was a clear ending that was shown in episode 7 of The Book of Boba Feet and that there were no cliffhangers shown (save for the post-credits scene), is there going to be a season 2 of The Book of Boba Fett?
As of this writing, there hasn’t been any update regarding the status of this series, as Disney and Lucasfilm are holding their tongue out. The Book of Boba Fett is yet to be renewed for a second season, as there is a possibility of it becoming a limited series with only one season.
This isn’t the same as The Mandalorian, which was clearly written to have multiple seasons, as seen from how the first two seasons ended. Of course, The Mandalorian was immensely popular among fans and allowed Disney to bring in some merchandise money. And while The Book of Boba Fett is also quite popular, the series was seemingly written to be a one-off because, as mentioned, the events at the end did not open up a possible plot for a second season.
As such, there is no telling what Disney and Lucasfilm have in store for The Book of Boba Fett and whether or not it is going to get a proverbial book 2. It is entirely up to the head showrunners and execs to decide on the fate of this series.
What’s A Possible Plot In Season 2 Of The Book Of Boba Fett?
If there is indeed going to be a season 2 of The Book of Boba Fett, what is it going to be about? That is something that is tough to answer because of the fact that the series ended without any cliffhangers or events that could possibly hint at the plot for a possible second season. However, that doesn’t stop us from trying to look at a possible plot.
The first plot that may end up becoming the focus of season 2 of The Book of Boba Fett is in relation to Boba Fett and Mace Windu. And the reason why we are bringing this up is that Temuera Morrison, who plays Boba Fett and portrayed Jango Fett and the clones during the prequel trilogy, talked about how he wanted his character to get back at Mace Windu for killing his father.
Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones introduced us to Morrison’s Jango Fett, who became the prototype for the clone troopers. However, he got killed by Mace Windu in a battle between the Jedi and the droids.
It might be possible that Boba Fett learned about the survival of Mace Windu because there have been rumors going around that the Jedi Master survived his battle with Darth Sidious back in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
The return of the Jedi Master might evoke painful memories in Fett, who had seemingly changed his ways during the events of The Book of Boba Fett as he was now portrayed as a family man. But learning of Windu’s survival might force him into a situation where he has to choose between returning to the life of a ruthless bounty hunter or choosing to focus more on his gotra or family. After all, Cad Bane did indeed try to taunt him by telling him that he was a killer like his father.
Essentially, allowing a season to focus on Boba Fett having an inner battle between his identity as a Jango Fett killer clone and as his own person. And this could be an interesting plot to try to focus on if Disney were to give in to Morrison’s request.
There is also a possibility that the plot will revolve around some of the other demons of his past coming back to haunt him. Or it could also be possible that the Pykes are going to come back larger and stronger than ever to get back at what happened in season 1. After all, there is still a good possibility that someone bigger is behind the Pyke Syndicate.
As such, allowing the entire narrative to grow bigger with the possible introduction of a bigger organization such as the Crimson Dawn could make the next season even more exciting for Boba Fett and Star Wars fans out there.
What Is Next For Star Wars After The Boba Fett?
Regardless of what Disney and Lucasfilm have in store for The Book of Boba Fett, we are inclined to believe that Boba Fett and his gotra are going to return in some form or another in the larger narrative and in another series.
For one, let’s not forget that the main series is still The Mandalorian and all of the other shows are spin-offs. As such, given the fact that Boba Fett and Din Djarin now have a clear relationship as friends, it might be possible for them to work together once more in the future, especially with The Mandalorian getting a third season that would be premiering sometime in the second half of 2022.
Of course, the Disney+ Star Wars universe is more than just The Mandalorian. Disney and Lucasfilm are still working on other spin-off shows such as Ahsoka and Obi-Wan Kenobi. This is why they are probably taking their sweet time with deciding on what to do with The Book of Boba Fett’s future, as they are more focused on not only the third season of The Mandalorian but on the other spin-offs as well.
And it might be possible that Boba Fett will be appearing in another spin-off series since everything in the Star Wars universe is interconnected through the will of the Force and the Disney and Lucasfilm executives.
