Today Lucasfilm has given us some big news regarding the upcoming season of “Star Wars Resistance,” as not only did they finally give us our first look at season two with a cool new trailer, but it has been announced that season two will be the final season of “Star Wars Resistance.”
You can check out the new trailer in the video above, where we get to see what everyone on the Colossus will be up to this season, but it also gives us a great look at the First Order, including the appearance of one major character from the sequel trilogy making his animated debut!
Here is the official press release on “Star Wars Resistance” season two sent to us from Lucasfilm, which includes details on some new characters and cast members we’ll see this season.
SEASON TWO OF THE HIGH-FLYING EMMY® AWARD-NOMINATED
‘STAR WARS RESISTANCE’ PREMIERES SUNDAY, OCT. 6,
ON DISNEY CHANNEL AND DISNEYNOW
The Emmy Award-nominated series “Star Wars Resistance” returns for its second and final season beginning SUNDAY, OCT. 6 (10:00-10:30 p.m. EDT/PDT), on Disney Channel and in DisneyNOW, with subsequent airings on Disney XD. The new season takes place during the events of “The Last Jedi” leading up to “The Rise of Skywalker,” as Kaz and the team continue to fight against the threat of the First Order, culminating in an epic series finale.
The story picks up after a harrowing escape from the First Order, as the Colossus and all its residents find themselves lost in space, pursued by Agent Tierny and Commander Pyre. Kaz and team also face a myriad of new dangers along the way including bounty hunters, a suspicious Hutt, General Hux and Supreme Leader Kylo Ren. Meanwhile, Tam grapples with her future and where her true allegiance lies, with her friends or the First Order. The thrilling final season will showcase how the unlikeliest of heroes can help spark hope across the galaxy.
Joining the voice cast in guest starring roles for season two are Joe Manganiello (“Magic Mike”) as Ax Tagrin, Daveed Diggs (“Hamilton”) as Norath Kev, Matthew Wood (“The Clone Wars”) as Kylo Ren and Lucy Lawless (“Xena: Warrior Princess”) as the Aeosian Queen. “Star Wars Resistance” stars Christopher Sean (“Days of Our Lives”) as Kazuda Xiono; Suzie McGrath (“East Enders”) as Tam Ryvora; Scott Lawrence (“Legion”) as Jarek Yeager; Myrna Velasco (“Elena of Avalor”) as Torra Doza; Josh Brener (“Silicon Valley”) as Neeku Vozo; Donald Faison (“Scrubs”) as Hype Fazon; Elijah Wood (“The Lord of The Rings”) as Rucklin; Jim Rash (“Community”) and Bobby Moynihan (“DuckTales”) as Flix and Orka, respectively; Liam McIntyre (“Spartacus”) as Commander Pyre; Jason Hightower (“Victor & Valentino”) as Captain Doza; and Sumalee Montano (“Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny”) as Agent Tierny.
Renowned Lucasfilm Animation veteran Dave Filoni (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” “Star Wars Rebels”) created the series; Athena Portillo (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” “Star Wars Rebels”), Justin Ridge (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” “Star Wars Rebels”) and Brandon Auman (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) serve as executive producers; and Amy Beth Christenson (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” “Star Wars Rebels”) is art director.
When it was first announced, I didn’t think that “Star Wars Resistance” would only last two seasons. But where the show is set in the timeline, and how it lines up with the sequel trilogy, it is probably a good decision to have it end with this upcoming season, and having it lead into “The Rise of Skywalker.”
Just going off this new trailer, the final season of “Star Wars Resistance” looks to be an exciting one, with our heroes traveling to different planets and encountering new characters. But what is no doubt most exciting, is that Kylo Ren will be making his presence known this season, and I am really looking forward to seeing how everything wraps up for the characters of this series.
