That's a wrap for The Mandalorian Season 2 ... at least for Gina Carano. The Cara Dune actress announced the end to her Mandalorian filming schedule on Friday, March 6, 2020. She shared two posts and one of them got fans worried that maybe she was saying goodbye forever and not just for the season.
The Mandalorian Season 2 has actually been filming since October 2019, about a month before Season 1 arrived on Disney+. In November 2019, the world was introduced to Baby Yoda/The Child and friends, and The Mandalorian became Disney+'s first major hit. It wasn't a given that fans would be so invested in Season 2, but after the first eight chapters, we're eager for more.
And that means more from former Rebel shock trooper Cara Dune. It's still not clear how much she'll factor into Season 2's story, since The Mandalorian Season 1's finale, "Redemption," showed Mando/Din Djarin leaving with Baby Yoda to figure out The Child's origin. Gina Carano has already hinted to knowing The Child's true name, so that's something fans are looking forward to learning in Season 2.
At any rate, we know Cara Dune re-enters The Mandalorian's storyline in Season 2, but whatever Gina Carano filmed is now in the past. Here's what she posted to Instagram:
She's done with The Mandalorian Season 2! Simple enough. But it's her Twitter post that really got some fans nervous:
That led some fans to worry it was a goodbye post, as you can see in her comments:
There's no hint that it was anything other than appreciation for another great season, but the fear is now out there:
Part of the concern may come from Gina Carano being the first major star from The Mandalorian to announce a wrap for Season 2. Will everyone else quickly follow or did she wrap early? Hopefully Baby Yoda didn't actually choke her to death this time!
Jon Favreau hasn't posted about wrapping up yet, and as far as we know The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal and company are still filming for Season 2's October 2020 release. Disney hasn't officially renewed the show for Season 3 yet, but if Favreau isn't done telling the story (please say you're not done) then Season 3 filming will probably match closely to Season 2's debut.
