Disney Plus’ “Star Wars” original spinoff series “The Mandalorian” is returning for Season 2 in October, said Disney chief Bob Iger on the company’s earnings call Tuesday.
Marvel’s “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” will premiere in August, while “WandaVision” will make its debut on the streaming service in December.
Iger also floated the possibility of infusing “The Mandalorian” with more characters and taking their “stories in new directions,” nodding to potential for spinoff series.
The chief exec disclosed that Disney Plus, as of Monday, had accrued 28.6 million paying subscribers, confirming Variety‘s earlier reporting of an expected 25 million to 30 million subs. By Dec. 28, the streamer had 26.5 million paid subscriptions, per the company’s quarterly report. Disney topped forecasts for the quarter, ended Dec. 28, and much of the call — as anticipated — focusing on the new streaming platform.
