'Rogue One' Spinoff Series Enlists 'Americans' Producer as Showrunner

Disney+ had enlisted a showrunner for its prequel series to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The Americans producer Stephen Schiff will oversee the series, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The series stars Diego Luna as Cassian Andor, and will follow the Rebel spy during the early days of the Rebellion.

When the series was announced earlier this month, Luna said of reprising his role, "We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply.”

Rogue One Series Has A Filming Date

Production Weekly, a website that tracks film and television production information and schedules, has posted on Twitter that the series will beginning production in October of 2019. Obviously this means the live-action series will not debut with other new shows such as The Mandalorian when Disney+ launches at the end of next year.

If they shoot things expeditiously, perhaps we could see something as early as summer 2020, fingers crossed.
