The Future

As to what the events of The Book Of Boba Fett will explore, the post-credits scene of The Mandalorian Season 2 teased Boba assuming control of the remnants of Jabba The Hutt’s cartel and rebuilding the criminal underworld with Fennec Shand at his side. Whether this will remain the series’ mandate remains to be seen. But it is going to be an absolute blast to finding out.  Could we see the long-awaited return of Bossk and the expansion of the Bounty Hunters Guild as Boba restructures his new empire? Only time will tell.
