It’s official: Star Wars Resistance will strike back in fall 2019.

Disney Channel has ordered a second season of the animated series Star Wars Resistance for a fall 2019 premiere, Lucasfilm announced today. Set prior to the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars Resistance follows Kazuda Xiono (“Kaz”), a young pilot recruited by the Resistance for a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. Fast and fun, the series features a colorful and vibrant anime-inspired look, and has introduced many new heroes and villains to the saga. (In addition to Team Fireball and the show’s very cool pirates, is especially fond of the turtle-like — and incredibly adorable — Chelidae aliens.)
