The Mandalorian has reached the end of its second run with an explosive finale capping off a tremendous season full of exhilarating action and fan-favourite character appearances.
In season two episode eight, Mando had a huge task on his hand – rescuing Baby Yoda (or Grogu, as he’s actually known) – after a series of unfortunate events saw him lose just about everything, including his ship and all his weapons.
What he does still have, though, is an assortment of allies backing him in his fight against Moff Gideon, including the returning Boba Fett (who we now know is getting his own spin-off series titled The Book of Boba Fett.
It’s been a series full of moments that have got Star War fans gushing, including the live-action debut of The Clone Wars character Ahsoka Tano and the return of Boba Fett.
And with The Mandalorian season three, it looks like the action is going to get even bigger and better in the future, as Disney+ continues to ramp up its Star Wars offering.
But how can watch the finale of The Mandalorian season two?
As with season one, The Mandalorian wasn’t available for fans to watch all at once – instead, viewers have had to wait for weekly releases of the new series.

Each episode of The Mandalorian season two has a subtitle, just as the first batch did, but these were not been revealed in advance as Disney aims to ensure there are plenty of surprises in store.
On that note, they’ve been very successful, providing exciting returns for Temeura Morrison as Boba Fett, Katee Sackhoff as Mandalorian warrior Bo-Katan Kryze, and Rosario Dawson as fan favourite Jedi Ashoka Tano.
Many fans had been expecting her to debut in the fifth episode, noting that it was written and directed by The Clone Wars showrunner Dave Filoni, who knows more about Tano than probably anybody else – and they were right!
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.
