The Emmy Award®-nominated series Star Wars Resistance will return for its second and final season beginning Sunday, October 6, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel and in DisneyNOW, with subsequent airings on Disney XD. The new season takes place during the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi leading up to Star Wars: 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. A season two trailer for Star Wars Resistance was released today on the Star Wars YouTube page.

Season two 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.
