Diego Luna’s Andor is not just a bona fide hit, it’s the kind of critical darling the galaxy far, far away not just wanted, but needed to cement the franchise’s TV legacy. The Mandalorian set the bar high, and Obi-Wan Kenobi’s premiere earlier this year was a success, but Andor always seemed more of a wildcard. Now, with the show’s Season 1 finale set to stream the day before Thanksgiving, an unprecedented move proves not just the show’s reach, but its importance for the Star Wars franchise.
To celebrate the holiday, The Walt Disney Company is offering viewers a chance to watch the first two episodes across all its distribution platforms, which includes ABC, FX, Freeform, and Hulu. The episodes, titled “Kassa” and “That Would Be Me” will be made available on the following schedule, with Hulu offering an extended streaming window:
- ABC: Wednesday, November 23, 9-10:30 pm ET/PT
- FX: Thursday, November 24, 9-10:30 pm ET/PT
- Freeform: Friday, November 25, 9-10:30 pm ET/PT
- Hulu: Available from November 23 through December 7
The first ten episodes of the series are now streaming on Disney+, with the penultimate episode set to release this Wednesday, November 16th, and the finale on Wednesday, November 23rd.
Diego Luna stars as Cassian Andor in the series, which is set 5 years before Rogue One and in the time period just before the original Star Wars trilogy. The show has already been renewed for a second season, which is also set to have 12 episodes and lead into the events of the movie.
