According to IGN,The Mandalorian will come out at 9 p.m. PT on Thursdays/12 a.m. ET on Fridays.” Reportedly, there are eight episodes total in this Star Wars-related series.

This may seem like a long time coming, but don’t worry — Disney is still testing out their release schedule for movies and television shows.

Although The Mandalorian recently shared their first episode, fans are already excited for another chapter in the story. Some took to social media, spread their love for this exclusive Star Wars television series. Others shared their excitement for upcoming episodes in Disney Plus’ show. 

“Pilot of #TheMandalorian is about as close to Dune as I’ve ever seen from anything Star Wars-related, and I mean that as a total compliment,” said one Twitter user. “Music is great, I dig the stoicism, and that ending. Lots of questions left to answer, but the hooks are in deep.”

“Yup, the first episode of #TheMandalorian rocked. It feels like the classic trilogy but is completely its own thing, feels very much more of a space western. The episode ends off on an intriguing bit. Curious to see where the series takes us,” said another Twitter user.
