Giancarlo Esposito comments on Moff Gideon in season two of THE MANDALORIAN

Moff Gideon/The Mandalorian (Disney+)

One of the highlights of season 1 of Disney+’s The Mandalorian was Giancarlo Esposito’s debut in the final episodes as Moff Gideon. The character was involved in a huge twist in the season finale which has left fans wondering whether the character will return and in what capacity for season 2.

With the second season in production now Esposito has commented on his role whilst appearing at a TCA panel promoting the fifth season of Better Call Saul.

When asked whether Gideon will have increased screen time in season 2, he confirmed that will be the case. “It’s growing,” Esposito said. “Yes, I do. I most certainly do.”

Written by Iron Man‘s Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog and Nick Nolte. The series debuts new episodes weekly on Disney+.
