Well K-2SO fans if you were getting excited about seeing your favorite sarcastic droid in the new Andor series coming our way on Disney+ you might not be too happy with this news. According to K-2SO actor Alan Tudyk in an interview with Collider, there will be no K-2SO in the first season of Andor. This is pretty surprising, especially since back in 2019 at D23 Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy when announcing the new Rogue One spin-off, Kennedy told fans that Alan Tudyk would be reprising his role as K-2SO. Now it looks as if we won’t see him until after the first season of Andor.

Alan Tudyk On His Role For Season 1 Of Andor

It is hard to think of a series telling the story of Cassian Andor, without K-2SO by his side. While talking with Collider’s editor-in-chief Steve Weintraub Alan Tudyk talked about his involvement or should we say lack of involvement in the first season of Andor.

They’re shooting it right now, I’m not in it. But, if it stays on the air, stories keep getting told, I’ll end up in there,” Tudyk told Collider. He also talked about how he will be in the show at some point.

“I’m going to be in the show. It’s just that the story that Tony [Gilroy] is telling doesn’t involve K-2SO until later on… I can’t be too specific, but I can definitely say that I’m not going to be in the first season.” 

What Does All This Tell Us?

Now we have heard this from other actors involved with some of the Star Wars Disney+ series. Just like when Ming-Na Wen said that she was not going to be in the second season of The Mandalorian. But what makes all this interesting if it is true, is that now we know this series will take place before the Cassian & K-2SO one-shot comic, and that means we will see K-2SO when he was still with the empire. Also with this news, it seems like this will be a multiple season series like The Mandalorian.
