Star Wars Resistance season 2 is happening and it's coming in Fall 2019. Here's everything you need to know.
Star Wars Resistance season 2 is set for liftoff, according to Disney. The show was renewed midway through the first season, which sees Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot turned Resistance spy, investigate a station called the Colossus and its connections to the First Order. Along the way, he makes a few friends and participates in high-stakes races with a pretty junky ship called the Fireball (she’s got it where it counts, though).
The show, which is set years after Return of the Jedi and just before The Force Awakens, has plenty of connections to Episode VII. The valiant Poe Dameron plays a supporting role on the show as Kazuda’s mentor while Captain Phasma leads her forces in the days before her mission to Jakku. General Hux and Starkiller Base have also appeared on the series. As an extension of the Sequel Trilogy, Kazuda’s journey hasn’t quite been the revealing interquel fans might have been hoping for, but for those who just want to watch plenty of Star Wars starfighter action, Resistance is the show for you.
Renowned Lucasfilm Animation veteran Dave Filoni (Star Wars Rebels) created the series while Athena Portillo, Justin Ridge, and Brandon Auman serve as executive producers. Amy Beth Christenson is the art director.
