Star Wars fans know Katee Sackhoff as the actress responsible for bringing Bo-Katan Kryze to life in the Disney+ live-action series “The Mandalorian.”
Sackhoff is rumored to have an even bigger role in season 3 of “The Mandalorian,” which is scheduled to hit Disney+ in early 2023. Although fans can’t wait to see Bo-Katan Kryze back on the screen, fans got to see her in person at the Showmasters fan convention this weekend.
While she was there, Sackhoff even gave fans a glimpse of her “new boyfriend,” and it’s not what most fans expected!

But Really… What Do We Know About ‘The Mandalorian’ Season 3?
So far, we don’t actually know a lot about the plot for season 3 of “The Mandalorian.” Bo-Katan Kryze will definitely have a role to play, and clips that were shown at the Star Wars Celebration fan event earlier this year revealed that there are going to be a lot of Mandalorians walking around.

There was also exclusive footage that was shown at the event to live audiences that hasn’t been released online just yet. Although fans want to know more information about season three, showrunner Jon Favreau told Cinema Blend that he had already started working on season 4 during the event.
“With television, we’re very lucky that we don’t have to rush things through into an hour-and-a-half, two hours,” Favreau told the outlet. “We get to tell stories slowly. So now, as Dave [Filoni]’s doing Ahsoka, it’s very much informing the writing that I’m doing for [The Mandalorian] Season 4. It becomes – how should I put it – more precise.”
Favreau explained that the Disney+ series make a “very fertile ground” for storytelling outside of the nine-episode Skywalker Saga, which wrapped up with “The Rise of Skywalker” in 2019.
“When I was writing the first season of Mandalorian, I could do anything, set it anywhere. Dave [Filoni] would read it, we’d go back and forth, I would adjust. And there it was,” Favreau explained. “Now we have to figure out why there are certain Mandalorians who wear helmets, certain ones who don’t wear helmets, what’s happening on Mandalore, what’s Bo-Katan doing at the time? How does she feel about that? Where is the Darksaber? So it really creates very fertile ground for imagination, for storytelling.”
Fans can’t wait to see what will happen in season 4, but first fans will have to find out what happens in season 3, which hits Disney+ in February. Hopefully, Kate Sackhoff will post a lot of pics with her “new boyfriend” to keep fans busy until then!
