The first season finale of The Mandalorian may have just dropped on Disney+ Friday, but fans don't have to wait to find out when they'll see all their favorites — especially Baby Yoda — again.

Just hours after the release of the finale, "Redemption," showrunner and creator Jon Favreau confirmed that the series will be back for another season — and revealed when — on Twitter. (The renewal had never been officially announced.) "Season 2 of #TheMandalorian coming Fall 2020," he wrote. Along with that reveal, he also posted a photo of a Gamorrean, a Star Wars species of green-skinned porcine humanoids. Might that be a tease about what to expect when the series returns?

"Jon has spoken," the Disney+ Twitter account wrote in reply to the news.

Season 1 premiered when Disney+ launched on November 12. The eight episodes were released weekly. It stars Pedro Pascal as the titular character, a bounty hunter.

'The Mandalorian' is a hit, thanks in no small part to a certain 50-year-old 'child' known, who's now a bona fide cultural phenomenon.

We'll have to wait to find out exactly when Season 2 will premiere.
