Andor's Backstory Begins: Grade the First 3 Episodes of Star Wars Series

Andor Recap Episodes 1 2 3

The origin of Cassian Andor, who was introduced in Rogue One as a Rebel Alliance intelligence officer, is the story unspooling now in Disney+’s latest live-action Star Wars series. Are you locked in for the two-season, 24-episode ride? 

Andor, save for some flashbacks to a formative incident from the title character’s childhood, takes place five years prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Season 1, which premiered on Sept. 21 with the first three episodes (of 12), will span one year, while Season 2 will cover the remaining four.

In addition to Rogue One vet Diego Luna reprising Cassian, the cast includes Stellan Skarsgård (Chernobyl), Adria Arjona (Emerald City), Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve), Kyle Soller (Poldark) and Denise Gough (Under the Banner of Heaven), while Genevieve O’Reilly and Forest Whitaker will reprise their respective Rogue One roles as Mon Mothma, the former Republic senator who eventually helped found the Rebel Alliance, and Saw Gerrera.
