"The Rescue" felt like a planned series ender
I think announcing a third season of "The Mandalorian" is just a bluff for the following reasons...
1.An appearance by Luke Skywalker can not be topped, so ending the show on the highest high note makes sense.
2.Nobody cares about Din Jar Jar without Grogu so a season without Baby Yoda seems pretty pointless.
3.Tons of reports of Pedro, the Communist from Chile', being difficult behind the scenes.
4.A Boba Fett series is a replacement for "The Mandalorian" show.
