Storming into our homes with a triple-episode binge premiere wrapped up in a detailed espionage plotline, Andor hit all the geeky sweet spots in its depiction of a grounded working-class Star Wars universe that ensnared our senses in its Blade Runner aesthetics. But with the Rogue One prequel’s debut drop in the rearview mirror, it’s time to start talking about Andor Episode 4.
Writer Tony Gilroy brought his Hollywood A-game to this impressive prequel project which reveals Cassian Andor’s (Diego Luna) childhood on Kenari discovering a crashed Separatist spaceship and his young-adult life as a criminal trying to sell stolen Empire weaponry while evading the corporate security that controls his far-flung corner of the galaxy — that is until he meets a Rebel recruiter played by Stellan Skarsgård who recruits him to the cause.
Andor is fortified with a sophisticated cinematic style, nuanced character development, and a brooding score courtesy of Academy Award-nominated composer Nicholas Britell. This down-and-dirty approach presents not a colorful world of Jedi knights and Sith lords, but one of common workers and poor families struggling to survive under the boot of the Empire.
Here’s everything you need to know about Andor Episode 4, from release date and time to plot, cast, and more.

What is Andor Episode 4’s plot?
Now that Cassian has escaped Ferrix with Luthen Rael and is bound for some secret base, Episode 4 is apt to introduce the big baddie of the series in Denise Gough’s supervisor Dedra Meero. There’s also concern for Cassian’s stepmother Maarva and Andor’s droid back on Ferrix.
Cassian’s sister is still missing somewhere and we’re bound to see the characters of Mon Mothma, Vel Sartha, and Saw Gerrera arrive on the scene eventually as Luthen brings Cassian into the cause. It appears that we’ll be visiting Coruscant this week too and traveling to the verdant planet of Aldhani.
