screenrant.com The Book Of Boba Fett: 10 Things Reddit Fans Want To See In Season 2
The Book of Boba Fett has finished its first season on Disney+ and, like much of the new Star Wars content on the streaming giant, has been praised by some fans and reviled by others. One thing is for sure; if there's going to be a season 2, fans have a lot of expectations for the direction of a series that promised to focus on one of the franchise's most beloved characters but sometimes fell short of its directive.

Whether it's hoping Boba Fett will expand his criminal empire, join Din Djarin in refounding Mandalore, or just wear his helmet more often, Reddit is buzzing with what a second season has in store for the new Daimyo of Tatooine. Assuming The Book of Boba Fett isn't a limited series, Reddit fans have a long wish list for season 2.SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY
A Crossover Universe
Taking a page from the MCU's book, The Book of Boba Fett could find its scope broadening in season 2, with Fett's story becoming integrated into the storylines of other characters like Din Djarin and Ahsoka Tano, both of whom have their own stand-alone series.
JayPetey thinks "the story is all going to culminate in a Mando/Boba/Ashoka-verse climax," implying that Boba Fett will still have a part to play in the greater narrative of the Star Wars Universe. A crossover will not only make fans excited to follow the characters' adventures across multiple series, but indicate that Fett won't be stuck on Tatooine forever.
Fett Vs. Admiral Thrawn
The Mandalorian's Moff Gideon and The Book of Boba Fett's Cad Bane have been some of the biggest villains in the pantheon of live-action Star Wars series, but fans are eager to see even more iconic baddies emerge from the shadows, particularly the Unknown Regions. Enter Grand Admiral Thrawn, the brilliant Chiss strategist from Timothy Zahn's Thrawn trilogy and Star Wars Rebels rumored to be making his live-action debut in The Mandalorian season 3.
"I imagine they'll all face Thrawn in a crossover series, " suspects Spensaurus-Rex, implying that after the helpful hand Mando lent to Fett against the Pyke Syndicate, the crime lord will return the favor and help him face off against Thrawn if the red-eyed rascal ever does appear. It would be compelling character development to see Fett fight against remnants of the Empire when it used to be one of his most gainful employers.
The Mandalorians Regrouping On Tatooine
Given that there are so few Mandalorians left that follow The Way, some fans wonder if they won't journey to Tatooine to regroup, with Jabba's Palace acting as an HQ of sorts. Season 2 could see Fett expand his enterprise by gaining the remaining Mandalorians, especially since they have no interest in going to Mandalore.
"Boba’s palace is the new Mandalorian headquarters after he brings in Din and maybe the armorer and remnants of the covert, " asserts SuffrnSuccotash, suspecting that if The Mandalorian beings to focus on "all of the Mandalorians" with Din Djarin and Bo Katan, Boba Fett might take them under his wing. This appears to be a natural progression building on Fett's foundational principles of community and family, without the rigid and dogmatic ideologies that Din Djarin seems to be moving away from.
A Live-Action Omega
The Bad Batch introduced fans to Omega, a female clone who was unaltered by Kaminoan growth technology to ensure that she would have a normal life span like her father, Jango Fett. If she's still alive by the events of The Book of Boba Fett, some fans would like to see Fett finding out he has a sister.

Impressive_Gur6677 thinks "introducing Omega & co would be great!" especially given that in Star Wars Legends, Fett eventually settled down and started a blood family of his own. Some fans felt Omega was an annoying character in The Bad Batch, and like Ahsoka Tano, might benefit from being seen in a more mature capacity if The Book of Boba Fett season 2 happens.
Building Out His Crime Empire
By the end of season 1, Boba Fett proved that even outmanned and outgunned, he could still take on a threat like the Pyke Syndicate. Alas, it remains to be seen whether or not ruling with respect over fear in Boba Fett is the superior strategy, especially if the Pykes retaliate, or another criminal enterprise like Crimson Dawn decides to take over his operation.
Taking On The Hutts
The loss of Jabba the Hutt's stranglehold on Tatooine left a void other entities besides Boba Fett could have filled. Jabba's cousins, the Twins, appeared early in The Book of Boba Fett to take Fett out and reclaim Jabba's spice-running protection racket for themselves, but Fett ran them out of town. Fett needed permission to kill the Hutts, but the lack of punishment for the attempt on his life could mean that their characters are left with options.
Joky0802 could see "a Hutt or Black Sun storyline in season 2. How awesome would be if Boba has to go to Hutta or Nar Shaddaa!? That would be a fan service for Kotor people too!" Fett tangling with bigger crime syndicates would be an appropriate narrative move given the power vacuum left by Jabba's death, and also make his operation seem less minuscule.
More Bounty Hunting
Some fans weren't very happy that The Book of Boba Fett saw the galaxy's deadliest bounty hunter running errands and fighting with bureaucrats rather than exchanging blaster fire with marks as he tried to bring in his latest prize. Being stuck on Tatooine didn't help because his scenery didn't change with each new mission, but with a solid crew in Fennec Shand and Black Krrsantan, he could regain his reputation in season 2.

Twistedshotgun thinks that "the best idea is back to basics" with Fett traveling "to somewhere, with a goal...Get him back to bounty hunting or searching for something." In some ways, this would make the series similar to The Mandalorian, but if Din Djarin is interested in claiming Mandalore, Fett might be able to occupy his position as the resident beskar-wearing bounty hunter.
A Grittier Version Of Boba
Fett transforming from a deadly bounty hunter into a compassionate crime lord didn't make sense to Book of Boba Fett fans, and that season 2 should fix that by making him appear competent, tough, and a formidable crime lord that wears his helmet to effectively intimidates his enemies. Now that's fully healed from the bacta tank, Fett shouldn't be hindered by old injuries, but reinvigorated with a warrior's spirit and fresh perspective.
"Instead of making Fett evolve into this lame, neutered version of himself, make him embrace his Mandalorian culture," says Stealth_Cobra, "Give Fett some grit. He's a 'Cold Blooded killer that worked for the Empire and Jabba'. Make him act like it...No more losing every fight. No more having Fennec doing all the fighting while he acts as comic relief."
The Book of Boba Fett sets up season 3 of The Mandalorian in several big ways, notably surrounding Din Djarin's relationship with the Darksaber and the importance of its status — and the Rise of the Mythosaur — on Mandalore. Due to the structure of events in the series and Din Djarin losing his status as a Mandalorian, some fans hope that Boba Fett will be the one to refund the Mandalorian homeworld and claim the throne for himself.
"My speculation was always that Boba is going to play a large role in refounding of Mandalore," says WaylanderL. "Who better to be Mandalore than Boba Fett who actually did hold the title in Legends?" Given how much emphasis has been put on Fett rebuilding a planet, and the Darksaber lore in episodes 5 and 6, it's possible that Fett could abdicate his role as Daimyo on Tatooine in favor of a loftier title.
While many famous faces have already appeared in The Book of Boba Fett, there's a slightly more obscure character some fans want to see given the live-action treatment: Durge, who first appeared in The Clone Wars animated series from Star Wars Legends, went on to pop up in the Doctor Aphra comics, and would make an interesting villain for Boba Fett to face in season 2.
"Love Durge. He is badass in the comics," says deeare73. "I would die. Durge has been my favorite ever since he led the fray of IG88 soldiers on the speeder bikes," adds missanthropolocenex. "As soon as I saw cad bane in that amazing scene it made me keep thinking how freaking badass durge would be in live action." agrees SimpleFoundation2. It's clear that there's a great desire for obscure characters to be given their due if only to canonize content that fans have revered for years.
