He returns

The next chapter

What we have been waiting for

The adventure continues

If you stuck around after the end credits of The Mandalorian's season 2 finale last year, you rejoiced to discover that another live-action Star Wars show was coming to Disney Plus. The Book of Boba Fett, which stars the iconic clone bounty hunter from the original trilogy, has now wrapped up and all seven episodes are available.

There was a little confusion after Pedro Pascal's Din Djarin bid a tearful farewell to Grogu, aka Baby Yoda, seemingly tying up The Mandalorian's current storylines. Is The Book of Boba Fett the next step for that show? Here's a rundown of a few key details.

What's The Book of Boba Fett?

The Book of Boba Fett is a spinoff series of The Mandalorian with new adventures centered on Boba Fett (Temeura Morrison) and partner Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen). The Mandalorian season 2 post-credits scene sees the pair taking over Jabba's former palace on Tatooine, suggesting that Boba is setting himself up as a crime lord on the galaxy's Outer Rim.

Whether seizing power on Tatooine is Boba's end goal or a step in a grander plan is unclear. Even though he's a clone of Mandalorian foundling Jango Fett, he doesn't claim that heritage and likely isn't too bothered about Bo-Katan Kryze's effort to retake Mandalore from the Imperial Remnant.

He could be trying to set himself up like Darth Maul did decades before in The Clone Wars, by building a criminal empire.
