We’re only a couple of weeks away from the arrival of The Mandalorian season 2 and Disney’s got another tease for what’s coming. The Disney Plus show’s latest trailer, which debuted during Monday Night Football, gave us some more glimpses of Baby Yoda, along with a few new characters that Star Wars fans might recognize.

Last season, Mando and Baby Yoda (aka The Child) narrowly escaped the pursuit of Imperial Agent Moff Gideon, thanks to some help from Cara Dune, Greef Karga, and a bounty droid called IG-11. But while Moff Gideon was momentary thwarted, he was revealed to be in possession of the Darksaber, and likely to still be on the trail of the bounty hunter.

While the first season of The Mandalorian focused mostly on introducing us to the show’s cast of new characters, it seems that season 2 will situate those characters more clearly in the Star Wars universe. Characters like Ahsoka Tano and maybe even Boba Fett are set to appear, along with Timothy Olyphant who may or may not be playing a returning character.

The second season of The Mandalorian is set to begin on Oct. 30. The episodes will be streamable on Disney Plus and will be released once a week.
