Star Wars: Ben Mendelsohn to Guest-Star in Andor Season 2?

One of the best things about Andor was its focus on story and sparing use of cameos, but with the second season incoming, it’s been confirmed that another familiar face from Rogue One is going to appear on the show.

Talking to The Playlist, director Alonso Ruizpalacios had accidentally let it slip that Ben Mendelsohn—who played Director Krennic in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story—was going to be appearing on the show. He confirms this by saying he was working with heavyweight actors including “Stellan Skarsgard, Forest Whitaker, and Ben Mendelsohn.”

With Andor showcasing the tightening grip of the Empire by the time of Rogue One, it would make sense for a character like Krennic to appear. After all, the finale of Andor had teased the creation of the Death Star, so it would make sense that the man who was overseeing the entire project had some kind of appearance.

Around the Andor timeline, it’s possible that Krennic already has Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen) in captivity, so maybe it’s possible that he could make a cameo as well. It would be fun if they could get Riz Ahmed to cameo as cargo pilot Bohdi Rook, but I think an appearance from Krennic could be enough. He could even just be one of the Imperials in that room talking about the brewing Rebellion.

No release date has been set for the second season of Andor, but it’s possible it could come out sometime next year.
