Season 2 of Andor will probably focus on the formation of the Rebel Alliance, a development that should include several notable Star Wars characters, both good and bad.
The dramatic season 2 of Andor has been set up by the season 1 conclusion as the show moves toward the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This season 2 may feature several well-known Star Wars characters.
Given what is known about Cassian Andor’s future relationships and the formation of the Rebel Alliance, some characters are anticipated to appear. In contrast, others are less certain (while still carrying a lot of exciting potentials).
Since the beginning of the series, Lucasfilm has intended to produce a second season of Andor. As a result, Andor as a whole has a predetermined goal in mind.
Cassian Andor’s development as a Rebel Alliance leader during this specific period of the Empire’s rule also serves as a dynamic testing ground for the idea of intergalactic insurrection. As a result, several important players from both teams will probably play in the upcoming season.
Bail Organa Should Appear In Andor Season 2
It makes sense that Senator Bail Organa of Alderaan will soon join Senator Mon Mothma in sacrificing all for the Rebellion. Jimmy Smits’ character, Bail, was a vital figure in the founding of the Alliance to Restore the Republic and the adoptive father of Princess Leia Organa, who played a significant role in the Galactic Civil War as a commander of the Rebellion.
Having appeared in the prequel trilogy, Rogue One, and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Bail’s appearance would represent the Alliance’s actual beginning.
Although she is currently under investigation and has been forced to use less than moral means to get assistance with her financial difficulties, Mothma continued to work covertly behind the walls of the Imperial Senate in Andor season 1.
She might, however, be persuaded by someone like Bail Organa to leave the perils of Coruscant and formally join the Rebel cause, assisting in establishing and directing a legal Alliance of individuals seeking independence from Imperial rule.
K2-SO Has To Meet Andor Before Rogue One
The iconic droid ally of Cassian and Alan Tudyk’s K2-SO will have to meet before the events of Rogue One, despite the possibility that Andor season 2 would involve a time jump.
It’s already known how the two met thanks to the canonical Cassian and K2-SO comic series, but there’s nothing to suggest that Andor season 2 couldn’t depict their initial meeting firsthand or even recreate it.
Based on what is already known about Cassian’s Rebel career in the Star Wars universe, K2-SO is anticipated to play some part in the upcoming season.
The Ideal Imperial Cameo Belongs to Orson Krennic
Director Orson Krennic, played by Ben Mendelsohn, would be the ideal Imperial cameo for Andor season 2 in terms of antagonists. The Death Star’s super laser appeared almost finished when Rogue One was set, based on the post-credits sequence from Andor’s finale where it was being constructed.
Therefore, it would be appropriate to include Director Krennic of the Death Star to demonstrate the Empire’s increasing arrogance.
The first season of Andor focused heavily on the Imperial Security Bureau. Only the most senior members of the Empire, such as ISB officials, would be aware of the highly-classified Death Star during this time, in addition to the Emperor, Grand Moff Tarkin, Darth Vader, and Krennic himself.

An Andor cameo by Krennic with ISB would be very exciting, supporting Andor’s advancement toward Rogue One, even if it were merely to provide an update on Project Stardust’s development and explain the most recent production pauses due to setbacks like the Marina 5 jailbreak.

Baze Malbus and Chirrut Îmwe Might Disclose Kyber Secrets
Even though it’s less likely, Chirrut Îmwe and Baze Malbus making an appearance would be incredibly compelling since they could provide details on people who used the Force while the Empire was in power while still maintaining Andor’s more sober demeanor (sans lightsabers, Jedi, and Sith Lords).
Chirrut and Baze, portrayed by Donnie Yen and Jiang Wen, were once the Guardians of the Whills on the holy moon of Jedha, guardians of the Temple of Kyber.
Chirrut remained faithful despite the Empire’s conquest as they began taking Kyber for the Death Star, while Baze grew more alienated and lost a significant amount of his faith in the Force.
Before Andor and Jyn Erso arrive on Jedha, Rogue One shows Cassian had prior knowledge of the Guardians, hinting that he may have dealt with them in the past.
When Saw Gerrera’s Partisans go to the edges of the holy city, perhaps Cassian and Luthen will visit Jedha in Andor season 2 to speak with them, setting up a meeting with the Guardians.
Andor season 1 has shown its readiness to include other stories, such as the arc of Mon Mothma, that are not directly related to Cassian. Perhaps Chirrut and Baze can give more details concerning Kyber, including those about Luthen’s necklace known as Sky-kyber.
Could Andor Season 2 Appear in Palpatine or Thrawn?
Andor’s most significant advantage right now has been how it differs from other Star Wars series, which tend to be highly Easter egg-laden and heavy on appearances that are more for show than for the narrative.
As a result, it would probably seem contrary to Andor’s more realistic character, but it’s feasible that Grand Admiral Thrawn and Emperor Palpatine may emerge in Andor season 2.
Despite this, hearing Palpatine’s name and the resulting terror and power he commands at this period are more ominous than seeing him.
Grand Admiral Thrawn’s live-action debut has also been much awaited and would probably fit well given his skill in finding Rebel cells for the Empire.

However, the anticipation and enthusiasm would probably be a distraction from everything else that Andorseason 2 will offer.
It would be preferable to hold out on Thrawn’s introduction until after his return to the Star Wars universe, during the Mandalorian era of programs like Ahsoka.
