With the new animated series Star Wars Resistance poised to make its midseason premiere this Sunday, the CGI series has officially been renewed for a second season by the Disney Channel.
Disney has announced Season 2 of Resistance will premiere sometime this fall, featuring the return of ace pilot and secret Resistance spy Kaz Xiono.
Taking place shortly before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Resistance fighter pilot Poe Dameron tasks the younger hotshot with spying on the First Order while maintaining his cover as a racer.
Developed by franchise veteran Dave Filoni, the animated series features a more family-friendly tone than its preceding series Star Wars Rebels. First Order villains Captain Phasma and Kylo Ren have both been teased to appear in the second half of the first season.
Airing Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Disney Channel, Star Wars Resistance stars Christopher Sean as Kazuda Xiono, Suzie McGrath as Tam Ryvora, Scott Lawrence as Jarek Yeager, Myrna Velasco as Torra Doza, Josh Brener as Neeku Vozo, Donald Faison as Hype Fazon, Jim Rash as Flix, Bobby Moynihan as Orka and Rachel Butera as General Leia Organa, with Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma and Elijah Wood as Jace Rucklin. The series returns for its midseason premiere on January 13.
