Resistance final season to feature bounty hunters, Hutts and First Order conquest leading up to The Rise of Skywalker …
The Emmy Award-nominated series Star Wars Resistance will return for its second and final season beginning Sunday, Oct. 6, at 10 p.m. Eastern/Pacific on Disney Channel and the DisneyNOW app, with subsequent airings on Disney XD.
The Resistance final season takes place during the events of Star Wars: Episode VIII — The Last Jedi and leads into December’s Episode IX — The Rise of Skywalker, as Kaz and the team continue to fight against the ascending threat of the First Order, culminating in an epic series finale. An all-new season two trailer for Star Wars Resistance was released today on the Star Wars YouTube page.
The story picks up after last season’s harrowing escape from the First Order, as the Colossus and all its residents find themselves lost in space, pursued by Agent Tierny and Commander Pyre. Kaz and team also face a myriad of new dangers along the way including bounty hunters, a suspicious Hutt, General Hux and Supreme Leader Kylo Ren. Meanwhile, Tam grapples with her future and where her true allegiance lies, with her friends or the First Order. The thrilling final season will showcase how the unlikeliest of heroes can help spark hope across the galaxy.
It looks like we’re going to see some familiar elements of the Star Wars sequel movie underworld, as well as what the rest of the galaxy has been experiencing since the destruction of the Republic’s capital Hosnian System and the advance of the First Order during the insular events of Episode VII — The Force Awakens and its immediate follow-up, The Last Jedi.
Joining the voice cast in guest starring roles for season two are Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike) as Ax Tagrin, Daveed Diggs (Hamilton) as Norath Kev, Matthew Wood (The Clone Wars) as Kylo Ren and Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess) as the Aeosian Queen.
