Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy announced today during the Disney+ presentation that Alan Tudyk will reprise the role of K-2SO in the upcoming Cassian Andor live-action series, coming to the streaming service launching on November 12.
For Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Tudyk both voiced K-2SO and performed motion-capture for the towering droid, who quickly became a fan favorite thanks to his wit and sense of loyalty.
In addition, it was confirmed that Stephen Schiff, of the critically-acclaimed show The Americans, will serve as showrunner and executive producer.
The series, set to go into production this year and premiere in 2021, follows the adventures of rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion and prior to the events of Rogue One. Diego Luna will reprise the role of Andor.
The rousing spy thriller will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire. A release date for the series has not yet been announced.
