Fan Input Will Contribute to Andor Season 2

Andor star Diego Luna recently discussed the series with Variety. Check out an excerpt here:

“The second season ends where Rogue One starts. We’re not changing the ending of Rogue One so that’s it. It’s a nice feeling, it’s like a long film… It has a beginning and an end. We all know what’s going to happen,” he said. “There’s something interesting with the second season, which is that I have a different feeling every day I go to set. Now I know, not just that the series was well received and that people liked it, but I know why they liked it. That’s another tool we have these days through social media. We actually listen to audiences and critics. We understand what things connected and what didn’t connect. It’s kind of cool to have an opportunity to go and execute another season having this information. It’s, in a way, a season that will end up representing the audience in a different way. Somehow, the audience is part of this season because the interaction we had served as inspiration.”

This is interesting to hear. One of the strengths of Andor’s premiere season is that it doesn’t pander to fans, in my opinion. There are no silly moments, like Ponda Baba appearing in Rogue One. However, listening to the audience can be a good thing, provided Tony Gilroy and his people are very selective about what to incorporate. I’m not eager for the show to end because I’ve loved it so far, but I look forward to seeing season 2.

Keep it the way that it was in Season 1. That’s all I want. The Mob does not rule, they throw tantrums on twitter about nonsense. Feedback is nice, but most of what social media has is not feedback, it’s tirades and tantrums.

    I agree. I like the show as is and I don’t understand the people who say it’s not Star Wars.
