The third season of the American television series The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal as the title character, a bounty hunter traveling to Mandalore to redeem his past transgressions with his adopted son Grogu and being aided on their journey by fellow Mandalorian Bo-Katan Kryze. It is part of the Star Wars franchise, set after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983). The season is produced by Lucasfilm, Fairview Entertainment, and Golem Creations, with Jon Favreau serving as showrunner.
Development on a third season of The Mandalorian began in late April 2020, and it was officially confirmed that December. The season continues the Mandalorian and Grogu’s storyline following the events of its spin-off series The Book of Boba Fett while also resolving several plot points established in the previous seasons; the season also promotes Katee Sackhoff as a series regular. Filming began in October 2021 and wrapped in late March 2022. Composer Joseph Shirley replaces Ludwig Göransson who composed the score for the previous seasons.
The eight-episode season premiered on the streaming service Disney+ on March 1, 2023, and ran until April 19, 2023. It received generally positive reviews from critics, with praise for the performances, musical score, direction, cinematography, and action sequences, but criticism for the writing and pacing, with some deeming the season weaker than its predecessors. A fourth season is in development.
