WARNING: Major SPOILERS for The Mandalorian Season 2’s finale episode are in the article. You’ve been warned!
The reason why we’re really hearing that a Luke Skywalker spinoff Star Wars TV show is in the works is because the Jedi Master appeared at the end of The Mandalorian Season 3. He turned up in the finale episode and Star Wars fans the world over really lost their minds over it.
It was an incredible cameo appearance from the Jedi Master, however, the CGI used to bring him back was a bit janky. That said, it’s being rumoured that Lucasfilm might be looking to recast the role for this rumoured Luke Skywalker TV show.
