It has been another exciting week for The Book of Boba Fett on Disney Plus.


The Book of Boba Fett has picked up from the post-credits scene of The Mandalorian season two left off in style.

Following the eponymous former bounty hunter as he tries to take control of the criminal empire once run by Jabba the Hutt, the new series suggests that Fett has some big enemies to take on - and we have some thoughts on who the show villain could be.

Lord Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) and mercenary partner Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) have found themselves up against the likes of Jabba the Hutt's twin cousins, a deceitful mayor and the alien smugglers known as the Pykes.

Also rounding out the cast is the likes of Jennifer Beals, Sophie Thatcher and Attack of the Clones star Daniel Logan.

However, with all these flashback sequences and epic stand-offs, just when can we expect the next instalment?

Here's when we can watch The Book of Boba Fett episode 4.

When is The Book of Boba Fett episode 3 released on Disney Plus?

The Book of Boba Fett episode 4 will be released on Disney Plus at 8am GMT Wednesday 19th January 2022.

The episode will likely run between 30 to 55 minutes to match the first two episodes.

It will be the fourth of seven episodes, meaning we are over the halfway mark of the season.

There is no news on whether or not the show will return for future seasons but a third season of The Mandalorian is on the way later this year.

The Book of Boba Fett episode Chapter 3: The Streets of Mos Espa saw Fett and Shand face up to their foes and come to some resolutions and realisations.

In flashbacks, we saw Boba Fett depart his comrades in the Tusken Raider camp to collect a toll from the Pykes after the freight train attack in the previous episode.

However, when a shocked Fett returns he finds that his new family has been slaughtered by the Nikto group.

In the present day, Lord Fett sets about seizing further control of Jabba the Hutt's former territory and when he is asked by a water vendor to help stop a group of young cyborgs stealing his water, Fett finds new employees.

The former bounty hunter gives the cyborgs jobs as his enforcers, including young Drash (Sophie Thatcher).

Later, Fett finds himself facing off with the Hutt Twins' Wookie warrior known as Krrsantan, but the Wookiee is ultimately captured in the basement by Jabba's guards.

The Hutt Twins themselves arrive and make peace with Fett, offering him the gift of a rancor and making clear they were misled by the likes of Mayor Shaiz.

Fett hopes to train up the new rancor - plus viewers get to see a trainer, played by Danny Trejo.

Fett and his entourage head to Mos Espa to question Mayor Shaiz but find he has vanished.

The group sees the mayor's majordomo fleeing and a chase sees the cyborgs corner the majordomo who reveals the truth: Mayor Shaiz is in league with the Pykes.

Intelligence soon reaches Fett with the news that the Pykes are arriving on Tattooine, prompting Fett to begin preparations for war with his enemies.
