Santa Clarita Diet’s Timothy Olyphant is the latest star cast in Season 2 of The Mandalorian.

Olyphant’s role is still under wraps and he’s set to join previously announced Morrison, Rosario Dawson, and Michael Biehn.

Olyphant has become known for his roles on Justified and Deadwood, the former of which he received an Emmy nomination. For films he’s starred in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Dreamcatcher, The Girl Next Door, Live Free or Die Hard, and Hitman.

Season 2 of The Mandalorian is set to be released later this year and Season 3 is already in the works at Disney+. It’s about the Mandalorian, played by Pedro Pascal, a bounty hunter on the fringes of the Star Wars universe, and how he becomes the guardian of a mysterious creature known as The Child, known by fans as Baby Yoda.

The Star Wars universe has been popular at Disney+ with three other shows in the works including the Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor, the Cassian Andor series starring Diego Luna, and the recently announced all female-led Star Wars series from Leslye Headland.
