The following article contains SPOILERS for The Book of Boba Fett season 1.

This series clearly had a mission to give some much-needed depth to the character of Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) and to build the world and time period that these live-action Star Wars and Disney+ series look to be playing in. The fan service opening of the series was incredible, and learning about what Boba Fett has been up to since he was swallowed into the stomach of a Sarlacc was needed.

However, building a character that fans have created a cult following around, and living up to that hype, was always a challenge. While some fans have compared this show to the universally beloved counterpart in The Mandalorian, there has been some disappointment.

While the best episodes of season one might not have involved the titular hero that much, if at all, there are still plenty of redeeming qualities for this series. Because of that, those invested have some things to ask about the future of this galaxy far, far away. With the conclusion of Chapter 7 of The Book of Boba Fett, there are some questions about the former bounty hunter, along with the whole Star Wars galaxy.

1. Will there be a season 2 of The Book of Boba Fett?

The literal world-building that this series and the writers have constructed for Tatoonie time and time again continues to be astounding. With the exception of some speed bikes having a fresh coat of paint on them, everything about Tatooine (the de facto home of the whole Star Wars franchise) continues to be accepted by the greater fanbase. It would be shocking if LucasArts and Disney do not follow through with this successful series.

However, the short answer to the question is we do not know yet. At the time of writing, Disney has not made any announcement one way or another if there will be a follow-up season. While audiences do wait in bated breath, it would be a safe bet that the multibillion-dollar company would be able to follow up a successful first season with another, especially given the world-building they are doing with Ahsoka, The Mandalorian, and so many other live-action series coming to Disney+. If there is any news on a second season, we here at Show Snob will keep you informed!

2. Has Boba Fett found himself a loyal team?

When this show was announced at the end of The Mandalorian season 2, all audiences knew were that Boba Fett was sitting on the same throne that Jabba once did and that Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) was the only one by his side. Throughout these seven episodes of The Book of Boba Fett, however, the eponymous character expanded his circle.

The next seven episodes saw the former bounty hunter build bonds with 8D8 (Matt Berry), a torture droid, the Wookiee Krrsantan (Carey Jones), along with Skad (Jordan Bolger), Drash (Sophie Thatcher), and the rest of the cyborg speed bikers. With the help of Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), folks from out in the newly christened Freetown look to be some more allies Boba Fett could call on if he needs help in the future as well. With the threat of the Pyke Syndicate being eliminated, that leads us to ask…

3. What does Daimyo Fett look like without the Pyke Syndicate interfering?

Since the Pyke Syndicate looked to be the true rulers of Jabba’s former territory, there is no major enemy that stands in the way of Boba Fett living in peace as the Daimyo. That being said, there are still plenty of enemies and possible contenders to challenge Boba’s authority. The first obvious choice is The Twins since the three of them have established tension, and that is not even talking about how Krrsantan used to be a bounty hunter for them.

Even still, Lortha Peel (Stephen Root) is still around, and his character proves that not everyone loves Boba Fett’s changes he has been making. The central location lends beautifully to being accessible for casual and hardcore fans alike, so I am sure the brains over there at the Mouse House will find a credible antagonist for Daimyo Boba Fett.

4. Is Cobb Vanth sticking around? In what condition?

When the penultimate episode of The Book of Boba Fett came to a close, Marshall of Freetown, Cobb Vanth (Timothy Olyphant), was gunned down by the evil Cad Bane (Corey Burton). Although this character has only been around for a few minutes of screentime, Vanth has already risen to a strong fan favorite. His fatal duel with Bane looked to be the end of his short run, but the finale added an abundance of proof why this is not necessarily the case.

When Boba Fett explained he was unable to use the Bacta tank because it was occupied, it was not a huge surprise to see the presumed dead Cobb Vanth in there and receiving care. The shock of the scene, however, came from when the mod artist, who helped build Skad and Drash, turned around ready for a procedure. Bringing someone back from being dead or a death experience could go one of two ways, so it will be interesting to see how the writers go about it in the future.

5. How will Grogu’s decision impact Din Djarin and the Force?

Regardless of one’s opinions about Star Wars always going back to the Skywalkers, the timeline is well established at this point, so one is either onboard or not. While Din Djarin’s episodes of The Book of Boba Fett were regarded as the better entries into season one, it is hard not to talk about what The Mandalorian is up to now that he has a new ship and he is reunited with his little buddy in Grogu. Audiences last saw them flying off into the stars, but what is their destination?

With Grogu’s decision from the end of Chapter 6 looks to be beneficial for fans of the pairing of Mando and Grogu, this leaves Jedi Master Luke Skywalker without a pupil for his new academy. Audiences do not know how Luke or Ahsoka (Rosario Dawson) responded to Grogu’s decision, something they could look into in The Mandalorian or Ahsoka’s upcoming standalone series, but it is a story that the execs at Star Wars would be foolish to not reference. Hopefully, for the benefit of fans of Boba Fett, there will be more emphasis on the Daimyo being a badass and not Mando.

Who do you think will be Boba Fett’s next challenger? Do you think Grogu made the right decision? What upcoming Star Wars series are you most looking forward to? Let us know your answers and your thoughts in the comments below!
