‘Time’ is the operative word here, too. While The Mandalorian season 2 release dates are locked in, including next week’s episode, the time it starts streaming is going to change from the premiere – at least for UK fans. Below, we’ll have the lowdown on why that is, as well as when you can watch season 2, episode 2 – plus a larger look at The Mandalorian season 2 release schedule so you can plan your Fridays (and holiday season) accordingly.
Every new Star Wars movie and TV show confirmed so far
Here's the low-down on all the new Star Wars movies coming our way over the next few years When are the upcoming Star Wars movies coming out? That's a harder question to answer than you may imagine. Ever since Star Wars: The Force Awakens launched the sequel trilogy back in 2015, there's been a new Star Wars movie every year. Yet, we're now going through a major dry spell – with no big-screen Star Wars adventures until 2023. And we have no idea what to expect from that movie. The future of Star Wars, for the meantime, is not in cinemas.
The Mandalorian season 2, episode 2 release date and time
The Mandalorian season 2, episode 2 release date is Friday, November 6. Of course, you’ll only be able to stream it on Disney Plus.
The time remains the same for the US: it all kicks off at 00:01am Pacific time/3:01am Eastern. However, with the clocks going back in the US on November 1, there's a change across the pond.
So, in the UK: instead of 7:01am GMT – as it was for the premiere – the new episode will drop an hour later at 8:01am GMT and will continue to do so moving forward.

The Walking Dead: World Beyond
The Walking Dead: World Beyond release date: 4 October
There's another – yes, another! – Walking Dead series is on the way. This one sees a group of young survivors who are living in a seemingly safe sanctuary, away from the Walkers (known to them as "empties"). However, they want to believe there's more out there, and travel across the country to find some semblance of life beyond. Apparently, the show has ties to the Rick Grimes trilogy...
The Walking Dead season 10 finale
The Walking Dead season 10 finale release date: 4 October
Tom Holland’s Spider-Man movies might be coming to Disney Plus
Our Spidey senses are tinglingSony Pictures currently owns the rights to Spider-Man, so Disney has previously said that it had no plans to add the movies to its streaming service. As we’ve seen before, though, the world is Disney’s oyster.
October is a big month for Walking Dead fans. Not only are two shows returning, but the finale of season 10 is finally arriving to reveal what happened to the main survivors. We should clarify – this sin't quite a finale! There are actually six more season 10 episodes that have been written during lockdown, and they are being made later this year. So there's that to get excited about, too.
The Haunting of Bly Manor
The Haunting of Bly Manor release date: 9 October
The Haunting of Hill House season 2, titled The Haunting of Bly Manor, will be based on Henry James' iconic novel, The Turn of the Screw, which tells the story of a governess who moves to Bly Manor to take care of a man’s niece and nephew – Miles and Flora – after their parents died. Things turn sour when the governess starts to see ghosts of the previous governess Miss Jessel and her lover Peter Quint around the property.
Speaking to GamesRadar+ and Total Film, the show's creator Mike Flanagan also confirmed the new series will adapt "dozens" of James's stories and not just The Turn of the Screw. Colour us intrigued and frightened – and eagerly awaiting a proper release date.
When does The Walking Dead season 10 return? And what's going on with season 11?
The Walking Dead season 10 return date has been pencilled in for "early 2021"So what gives? We have the essentials waiting for you down below: the full story behind The Walking Dead season 10 return date, its extended season, and even what lies ahead for the final-ever Walking Dead season next year.
Star Trek Discovery
Star Trek: Discovery season 3 release date: 15 October
Star Trek has always had a thing for boldly going where no one has gone before. Star Trek: Discovery season 3 looks set to go so far beyond the final frontier, however, as last season's climactic, time-jumping ending changed the show's course forever.
That means that the next time we meet Lt Commander Michael Burnham, Commander Saru and the rest of the crew will be 930 years in the future, exploring a universe they don’t recognise and with no immediate allies to call on for help. In other words, for the first time since Star Trek: The Next Generation beamed onto TV screens in 1987, Star Trek: Discovery season 3 will be exploring an entirely new region of the Star Trek timeline – totally unbound by the restrictions of existing canon, and we cannot wait.
Helstrom release date: 16 October
New Transformers movie on the way from Creed 2 director
The Transformers franchise is getting a revampParamount Pictures decided to revamp the franchise at the start of the year, with two scripts simultaneously in development from screenwriters James Vanderbilt and Joby Harold – Harold’s script has now been chosen for the next instalment. The screenwriter also penned Zack Snyder’s upcoming zombie heist movie Army of the Dead and he’s on board for Disney Plus’ Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off TV show too.
Marvel goes full horror in Helstrom, a new series about a family who have to deal with their own super-powers. This looks set to be one seriously scary series – just don't expect too many tie-ins to the wider Marvel universe.
The Mandalorian season 2
The Mandalorian season 2 release date: October 2020
The Mandalorian has quickly become one of our favourite shows, mainly thanks to the adorable Baby Yoda. The adventures of Daddy Mando and his adopted green creature are a pleasure to watch, and we can't wait to see how that season 1 ending leads into season 2.
Falcon and the Winter Soldier
Falcon and the Winter Solder release date: TBA 2020
Yes, there have been multiple Marvel shows that link to the larger MCU, but none have brought central Avengers to the small screen. Now comes Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which will be the first Disney Plus-exclusive Marvel show. MCU mastermind Kevin Feige has promised crossover between the Disney Plus shows and the movies, so get this on your watch list if you're a Marvel fan.
WandaVision release date: December 2020
Following Falcon and the Winter Soldier comes WandaVision, another MCU series that brings movie characters to the small screen. This one looks particularly wild, with the potential to dive into multiple dimensions. This is going to be one confusing head trip.
Lord of the Rings Amazon show
The Lord of the Rings Amazon show release date: TBC
No-one's expecting Amazon's Lord of the Rings show to be released anytime soon. We currently have a few casting announcements, such as Will Poulter as one of the leads, and a period setting, in The Second Age, but little else. Still, we're hugely excited to see what co-showrunners JD Payne and Patrick McKay will do with Tolkien's world. Because the more time spent in Middle Earth, the better.
The Mandalorian season 2 release schedule
As far as we know, The Way to the finale is essentially clear: one new episode every Friday. The Disney Plus series isn't going the route of The Boys and releasing chunks of episodes, nor is it opting for the Netflix treatment and dropping everything at once. The Mandalorian season 2 release schedule is very much old-school in that regard: one new episode every week (already-aired episodes are in bold)
- The Mandalorian season 2 premiere: Friday, October 30
- The Mandalorian season 2, episode 2: Friday, November 6

- The Mandalorian season 2 finale: Friday, December 18
What time will new episodes of The Mandalorian season 2 air on Disney Plus?
New episodes of The Mandalorian season 2 will air every Friday from 12:00am Pacific/3:00am Eastern. That's a big commitment and we don't blame you if you want to hit snooze on your alarms until the morning. In the UK, things are slightly easier: 8am GMT.
