For those diehard fans of the Disney+ Star Wars series, it isn’t hard to understand what he means. Bringing in new characters like Kino Loy (Andy Serkis) and providing much-needed backstory to existing ones like Mon Mothma, the first season of Andor was easily some of the best Star Wars material Disney has released since its acquired Lucasfilm.

Now we know why! Tony Gilroy recently received the Ian McLellan Hunter Award for Career Achievement at the Writer’s Guild Awards. Upon receiving the award, Gilroy used the platform to hype up season 2 of Andor.
