The Mandalorian Won’t Skip a Week Due to Thanksgiving | IGN

The Mandalorian Season 2, episode 4 was released on Friday, November 20 on Disney+. Episode 5 of The Mandalorian will air Friday, November 27 at 12am PT/3am ET on Friday morning in the US, aka Black Friday, which is 8am Friday in the UK and 6:30pm ACT/7pm AET Friday in Australia. IGN has confirmed that The Mandalorian release schedule won’t be skipping a week due to the Thanksgiving holiday in the US.

Unlike the first season, which aired in the US and Australia first since Disney+ hadn’t launched in the UK at the time, Season 2 of The Mandalorian will be released in a number of international territories simultaneously, wherever Disney+ is available.

When Does The Mandalorian Season 2 Air?

Disney+ is releasing new episodes of The Mandalorian Season 2 weekly on Fridays, which is a trend the streamer has followed since Disney+ launched back in 2019, instead of opting for Netflix’s binge model of releasing a whole season at once. Last year, The Mandalorian’s episode schedule was a bit wonky due to the theatrical release of Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker, but The Mandalorian’s Season 2 release schedule will stick to consecutive Friday debuts for all eight episodes.

What Time Does the New Mandalorian Episode Come Out?

The time each new episode of The Mandalorian Season 2 is expected to drop is at 12am PT/3am ET on Friday morning in the US, which is 8am in the UK and 6:30pm ACT/7pm AET in Australia.

So far, Disney+ is keeping the episode descriptions for The Mandalorian’s second season vague by offering the same synopsis for every episode: “The Mandalorian and the Child continue their journey, facing enemies and rallying allies as they make their way through a dangerous galaxy in the tumultuous era after the collapse of the Galactic Empire…”
