Alan Tudyk Will Voice K-2SO on Disney+’s Cassian Andor Series

Although Cassian Andor and K-2SO’s story ended with Rogue One, Disney+ is giving the duo a new lease on life. During the Disney Investor Day 2019 presentation, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy announced that Alan Tudyk will reprise his role as K-2SO on the Cassian Andor series. As previously revealed, Diego Luna will reprise his role as Cassian. The series will be a prequel to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Via, it was also confirmed that  Stephen Schiff (The Americans) is the showrunner and executive producer of Cassian Andor. The announcement describes the show as a “rousing spy thriller will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire.” Production will begin later this year. However, it’s going to be a long wait for fans. The show won’t premiere until 2021.
