According Empirethe already confirmed first and second season of Andor will span a total of five years, the first of which will be depicted in the show’s first season, while the second season will cover the remaining four. Each season contains 12 episodes.

Andor creator and showrunner Tony Gilroy said it was quite a feat of structure and planning.

“The scale of the show is so huge,” Gilroy said. “The directors work in blocks of three episodes, so we did four blocks [in season one] of three episodes each.

Gilroy said the process of filming the first season gave them some interesting ideas for season two.

“We looked and said, ‘Wow, that would be really interesting if we came back, and we use each block to represent a year. We’ll get closer to a year with each block,'” he said. “From a narrative perspective, it’s really exciting to be able to work on something where you do a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and then skip a year.”
