Indeed, Disney has not yet commented on the status of a potential The Book of Boba Fett season 2. That could mean the show won’t return, with Boba and Fennec being folded back into other series, or it could mean the House of Mouse is holding a season 2 announcement for a later date.
Either way, the rest of the 2022 Star Wars Disney+ slate seems set at this point. Obi-Wan Kenobi will release on May 25, with Andor, The Bad Batch season 2, and The Mandalorian season 2 filling out the rest of the year. Ahsoka and The Acolyte are rumored to film this year, which means you can probably expect to see them on the streaming service in 2023. Could The Book of Boba Fett season 2 follow?
There’s also the question of where the show could go next if it were to return for a second season. With the conflict with the Pykes finished, Boba and Fennec would need new villains to take on. The most likely enemy faction? The Hutt Cartel. Now that the Pykes are gone, could the Hutt Twins return and take another stab at getting their palace back?
It’s also possible Boba and Fennec will want to expand their empire beyond Tatooine, taking the fight to Nal Hutta and Hutt Space, the center of the criminal underworld in the galaxy far, far away. Certainly, fans of the old Legends continuity have waited decades to see hives of scum and villainy like the Hutt moon of Nar Shaddaa and the Mid Rim smuggler hub Ord Mantell. Since The Book of Boba Fett has been billed as a series meant to take a deeper drive into the criminal element of the Star Wars universe, there’s a unique opportunity to show us the other lawless corners outside of New Republic jurisdiction.
