'The Mandalorian' season 2 has added two more directors to its roster.
The list of directors assembled for season one of 'The Mandalorian' - including Bryce Dallas Howard, Taika Waititi, Deborah Chow, Rick Famuyiwa and Dave Filoni - wound up being one of the show's biggest attractions; as well as a major contributor to its success.
So far, those confirmed to be helming episodes in season 2 include Dave Filoni (who helmed the pilot to 'The Mandalorian' and season 1’s "The Gunslinger"); Rick Famuyiwa (who also directed episodes in season 1); cast member Carl Weathers and showrunner Jon Favreau.
Having been previously rumoured to be a director, it has been officially confirmed that Robert Rodriguez will helm episodes in the series, and he isn't the only confirmed name.

Reed previously worked with Marvel on 'Ant-Man' and 'Ant-Man and the Wasp'. He also helmed 'Yes Man' and 90s favourite 'Bring It On'.
The cast is shaping up nicely for season 2 as well. Michael Biehn of 'The Terminator' fame will be appearing in an as-yet-unspecified role while Rosario Dawson plays Ahsoka Tano.
Most importantly, as confirmed by Rodriguez, Baby Yoda is back.
