The fight against the First Order continues this fall as Disney Channel announces the Emmy-nominated series’ final season return.
It has just been announced that Emmy Award-nominated Star Wars Resistance will return for its second and final season October 6 on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW, with subsequent airings on Disney XD. Season 1, set prior to the events in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, launched last October 6 and quickly became a fan favorite. The new season takes place during the events of The Last Jedi leading up to The Rise of Skywalker, as Kaz and the team continue to fight against the threat of the First Order, culminating in an epic series finale.

The story picks up after a harrowing escape from the First Order, as the Colossus and all its residents find themselves lost in space, pursued by Agent Tierny and Commander Pyre. Kaz and team also face a myriad of new dangers along the way including bounty hunters, a suspicious Hutt, General Hux and Supreme Leader Kylo Ren. Meanwhile, Tam grapples with her future and where her true allegiance lies, with her friends or the First Order.
