Why is Andor on Hulu? Disney's Thanksgiving Distribution Explained

Now that the prequel series has concluded on Disney Plus, Star Wars fans were surprised to see the show arrive cross-platform and we explain why Andor is on Hulu, amongst other streaming services.

Episode 12 of Andor, titled Rix Road, saw all the key players return to Ferrix for Maarva’s funeral. As the Empire attempted to restrain the free people, a sign of rebellion rose up while Cassian took Bix to safety.

Created by Tony Gilroy for Disney Plus, Andor is a prequel series to Star Wars spin-off Rogue One, returning Diego Luna as Cassian Andor. Set five years before the Jyn Erso-led project, Andor also stars Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, and Fiona Shaw.

When Will Andor Season 2 Come Out?

Andor will run for two seasons, as the series was previously confirmed to have 24 episodes in full, spanning two seasons.

The entirety of Andor covers a five-year period, and Season 1 already took up one year of that expanse, and the next block of episodes in Season 2 will span the remaining four years leading up to the events of Rogue One.

Considering Season 1 began filming in December 2020 and took two years to premiere, this means fans should expect Season 2’s release window to be in mid-to-late 2024.
