Disney’s “Andor” wrapped up its first season and began filming its second season this week.
The show is such a huge blow to the Disney+ service that some even say it “redeemed Star Wars” in their eyes following a rough few years last year.

“Come to think of it, the other day we were talking about opening all lanes. [by ‘Andor’]I hope you’re paving the way for a 3-camera “Star Wars” sitcom.
