‘Star Wars’: Cassian Andor Series Enlists Stephen Schiff As Showrunner

He was a writer on The Americans. Huge get!
He wrote some of the best episodes of The Americans which means he wrote some of the best episodes of TV ever.

Honestly more interested now.

Seems like a perfect fit with Cassian being a spy and all.

Tudyk confirmed reprising K2. Kennedy said it’s a spy tv series set in Star Wars Universe with Americans writer as show runner.


Excited about D&D and Rian’s trilogy but this TV series have a heck of a lot of promise!

‘Rogue One’ Writer Tony Gilroy Joins Cassian Andor ‘Star Wars’ Series at Disney Plus
The planned Disney Plus series centered on “Rogue One” character Cassian Andor is bringing in the film’s co-writer, Tony Gilroy, Variety has learned exclusively.

Gilroy is set to write the pilot for the series in addition to directing multiple episodes. He will work alongside Stephen Schiff, who remains onboard as showrunner. No official premiere date has been set, but Disney had previously indicated the show would debut in 2021.

The untitled show focuses on Rebel agent Andor prior to the events of “Rogue One” in the early days of the Rebellion against the Empire. The show has been described as a “spy thriller” when plans for it were first revealed last year. It was also previously announced that Diego Luna would return as Andor, while Alan Tudyk is set to reprise his role as K-2SO, Andor’s droid sidekick.

He was originally an uncredited writer on “Rogue One,” but earned a screenwriting credit when he was brought on to handle extensive reshoots on the film. He is also said to have worked closely with director Gareth Edwards to supervise the edit once reshoots were completed.

I would say this is a good thing, might mean it gets closer to being the slick procedural that it needs to be rather than the hedging quasi-mess that R1 was.
