Fans have eagerly been awaiting a trailer for the next season of The Mandalorian , but even after filming was long completed, there has been no hint of one. Now, however, an official announcement has been made on its release date, along with a new, less lonely, logo for the show...
In a tweet, Star Wars officially announced that "episodes" of the second season of The Mandalorian will begin streaming on Disney+ October 30th.

This announcement was accompanied by a new logo showing the titular character and The Baby.
WHAT THIS MEANS
The new logo that came with the announcement isn't too different from the original with the exception of a new blue color scheme and The Child walking alongside our favorite Mandalorian, no longer alone. It also appears that the logo is showing off a new, currently unknown planet.
Still, it's a rather odd strategy to announce the release date through a Tweet rather than a trailer, as everyone was expecting. But, it seems like Disney+ is moving full steam ahead with this show to make sure that 2020 isn't totally derived of content for their streaming service.
Considering that the primary strategy for maintaining subscribers for any streaming service is new content, Disney will want to debut another big-budget show before the end of December. The only real two candidates for this would be The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and WandaVision , both of which still need to finish filming. Recent news about both shows points to good prospects, baring anymore delays, of filming finally finishing for both.
This means that it's actually all the more likely that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier could finally release on Disney+ shortly after The Mandalorian finishes its second season.
