The Mandalorian Season 3 finale “The Return” aired on April 19 and generated a ruckus among the fans. To the delight of the audience, The third season widened the role of fan-favorite character Grogu on the show. Showrunner Dave Filoni did warn fans after the conclusion that there was no reason to believe that there would be any real exploration of Grogu’s family or species, however. Filoni responded that if he had any knowledge of the information it would be a shame to reveal it. It would be clear that I knew and wouldn’t tell, and that would be cruel. Therefore, I’m not going to reveal it.
