The galaxy's most sarcastic droid will eventually return in "a spectacular fashion."

One of the galaxy's sassiest droids won't be making an appearance in the upcoming Disney+ series Star Wars: Andor. At least not right away.

During a panel at the Television Critics Association's virtual Summer Press Tour, producer Tony Gilroy revealed why K-2SO didn't make it into season one. “From a storytelling point of view there are multiple reasons he's not in the show,” Gilroy said.

For one, the Cassian Andor the audience will meet in the first season isn't someone who would know how to reprogram an Imperial droid.

But the KX-series security droid behind several sarcastic quips in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will have his story told eventually.

“I would say wait and see and it's a story we ultimately have to and are eager to tell and we think we have an interesting way to do it,” Gilroy said. “When we do it we'll do it in a spectacular fashion and we'll do it the way it's supposed to be done.”

Alan Tudyk, who brings K-2SO to life by performing in an elaborate mo-cap suit, has said that the droid will return.

“I'm going to be in the show. It's just that the story that Tony [Gilroy] is telling doesn't involve K-2SO until later on… I can't be too specific, but I can definitely say that I'm not going to be in the first season,” Tudyk said back in January.

Andor is the first Disney+ Star Wars show to film fully on set and on location. The series doesn't use a digital set called the Volume at all, which was employed in other shows like The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The highly anticipated prequel series take place five years before Rogue One, with the first season spanning one year and the second covering the following four. Andor will premiere with three episodes on September 21. Several other Star Wars movies and TV shows are set to come out soon, including The Bad Batch Season 2 and Ahsoka.
