After the promising first series, it’s been another excellent season of The Mandalorian, and we’re past the halfway stage now as we head towards the business end of the second run.
Episode five was a particularly exciting one for fans, including not only the reveal of a fan favourite character appearing in the series for the first time, but also revealing Baby Yoda’s real name.
The episode was helmed by Dave Filoni, who has worked extensively on The Clone Wars, and he brought all his knowledge of the series to deliver a knockout episode.
The episode was slightly lighter regarding details on what Moff Gideon could be up to, but with three episodes still to go in the series we’re bound to find out more about the mysterious villain soon.
You can find out all our spoiler-filled thoughts on the episode in our latest The Mandalorian review, which tells you everything you need to know about the new chapter.
So when exactly can we watch new episodes of The Mandalorian? What time is it released on Disney Plus, and how many episodes will there be?
As with season one, The Mandalorian isn’t available for fans to watch all at once – instead, viewers will have to wait for weekly releases of the new series as Pascal’s mysterious bounty hunter searches for Jedi while dodging the evil Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito).

What time will The Mandalorian release on Disney Plus UK?
New episodes of The Mandalorian will be released on Disney+ at 8:00 AM GMT on Fridays during season two – in other words, just in time to enjoy over your breakfast.
This release time has changed in the UK following the first episode’s release at 7:00 AM – this is due to the clocks going back in America following The Mandalorian season two’s premiere.
In the States, episodes will release at midnight PT and 3:00 AM ET, while fans in Australia will have episodes released at 6:00 PM on Fridays.

Each episode of The Mandalorian season two will have a subtitle, just as the first batch did, but these have not been revealed in advance as Disney attempts to keep story details firmly under wraps.
That said, we do know that the series has some big character returns in store.
We’ve already caught a glimpse of Temeura Morrison’s apparent reprisal of Boba Fett, while Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff has returned to her Clone Wars role of Mandalorian warrior Bo-Katan Kryze.
And in episode five, we finally got our first glimpse of Rosario Dawson as Ashoka Tano, the fan favourite Jedi who had previously been name-dropped in episode three.
Many fans had already been expecting her to debut in the fifth episode, which was written and directed by The Clone Wars showrunner Dave Filoni, who knows more about Tano than probably anybody else.
Filoni is once again working alongside showrunner Jon Favreau on season two, while directors Rick Famuyiwa, Robert Rodriguez (Alita: Battle Angel) and Peyton Reed (Ant-Man and the Wasp) are also involved.
