The creator of the Andor TV series talks about the fate of two main characters


Andor, Disney’s new live-action Star Wars television series, recently wrapped up its first season. The show will return for a second season sometime in the future, possibly in 2024, and while fans wait, series creator Tony Gilroy has answered some burning questions about the events of season 1.

This story contains major Andor spoilers.

Starting off, Gilroy addressed what might have happened to Andy Serkis’ fan-favorite character Kino Loy following the events of the prison break. After escaping from prison, Loy and all the other prisoners had to jump into the water and swim to shore to have any chance of survival. The only problem? Loy admits in a tender moment, “I don’t know how to swim.” That’s the last we see of Loy, leaving fans wondering what happened to him.

Gilroy gave a timid explanation to entertainment weekly. He said, “He doesn’t die. I don’t know. We don’t see him die.”

Anything can happen in the crazy and wild world of Star Wars, so it wouldn’t be unreasonable for Loy to somehow survive. It looks like fans will have to wait until season 2 to find out.

Gilroy also tackled the theory that Marva (Fiona Shaw) didn’t actually die and that her funeral scene was just a show to help her escape. This is a fun theory, Gilroy said, but it’s not true.

“I saw that theory. I love that theory. I saw someone with a theory, ‘Oh my God, she’s not dead. They’re sneaking her out of there. It’s Cassian’s way of freeing her and they think she’s dead.’ And I was like, ‘Wow, that’s a viable idea,’ but that’s not what we’re doing,” he said.

Finally, Gilroy addressed where Cassian is headed in Season 2. Gilroy said that Season 2 will “juggle four years” of storytelling as the plot moves towards the planet Yavin.

“How do you collaborate when paranoia and secrecy are your product? How do you scale? How do you join forces? And how does the empire exploit those differences? What are the effects of time on these people? And then obviously within So, we’re going to try to tell a really heartbreaking story, a really good adventure story,” Gilroy said. “And we’re going to try to have all the relationships and all the love and all the betrayal and everything else.”

Filming for Andor season 2 is underway, but the show is not expected to hit Disney+ until 2024. While Star Wars fans have a while to wait for Andor’s next season, The Mandalorian season 3 It will debut in February.
