The Mandalorian Season 2 will feature Timothy Olyphant’s character wear Boba Fett’s Mandalorian armour, but we don’t really know why.
According to new reports (via IGN), Olyphant’s character will wear Boba Fett’s Mandalorian armour in the upcoming season of the Star Wars TV show.
It’s being reported that Olyphant is going to be playing Cobb Vanth in The Mandalorian Season 2.
Vanth was introduced in the Star Wars book, Star Wars: Aftermath.
He is actually a really interesting character and I’m really looking forward to seeing Olyphant play him in Season 2.
Aftermath was actually the last time we saw Fett’s armour.
It seems like Vanth will be in possession of the armour in The Mandalorian Season 2.

Vanth is the sheriff of Freetown on Tatooine after acquiring a set of Mandalorian armour from Jawas.
In the book, Freetown was attacked by the Red Key Raiders but Cobb managed to enlist the Tusken Raiders’ help in driving the criminals away.
It’s being reported that Vanth will end up wearing Fett’s armour in order to save Freetown in Season 2.
He might try to use the armour to make people think that Fett is around and deter criminals from attacking Freetown again.
He might even end up becoming a bounty hunter himself.
