While there is currently no official plot synopsis for Andor In Season 2, it will most likely follow Cassian as he continues to become a key member of the Rebel Alliance, while the individual cells that make up this alliance work more together. Although the first season of Andor takes place in 5 BBY (five years before the Battle of Yavin) and over the course of a year, Tony Gilroy explained that season 2 is made up of three-episode arcs known as “blocks” with each block taking place during one year. (four years in total) and the last one leads to the events of rogue one. This is what writer Beau Willimon had to say about this structure:

“Season 2 covers four years in the same amount of time that we covered one. So there’s an acceleration. So you have all this knowledge of the characters, the world and the momentum. And Tony always had a long-game picture of how we got there. to the fifth year in terms of the Cassian Andor story, but now you’re dealing with this new challenge in a wonderful way of this acceleration of the story and of the evolution in time, which I think is really exciting. What we could probably say about Season 2.”

Gilroy also confirmed that Yavin 4 will be one of the locations in Season 2. He didn’t say how the planet will factor into this new season, but many Star Wars fans will know Yavin as the base of operations for the Rebel Alliance in Episode IV: A New Hope. Yavin 4 also made an appearance in rogue one. Since Cassian was seen on Yavin in the latter, maybe that’s a place where Andor Season 2 where you will accept missions as the Rebellion becomes more unified.
