The PR site for Disney+ has revealed the air dates for all eight episodes of the upcoming “The Mandalorian” TV series with the episodes to run weekly on Fridays from November 12th through to the finale on December 27th with one exception.
Actually, there are two notable eyebrow raises regarding that air slate. The first is Disney isn’t caring about the Thanksgiving holiday and will air the fourth episode during this year’s ‘Black Friday’ sales on November 29th.
The second is the penultimate episode will NOT air the same day as “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” opens on Friday December 20th but rather will go out a bit earlier – arriving on Wednesday December 18th. That is the only episode of the inaugural slate that won’t air on a Friday.
The series, which reportedly comes in at a price tag of $15 million per episode, has already been renewed for a second season. Check out a full schedule provided by DH contributor and friend of the site Blake Howard:
