New episodes of The Mandalorian season 2 will air every Friday, but it's a tough (and late) ask for those in the US: 12:00am Pacific/3:00am Eastern. That's a big commitment and we don't blame you if you want to hit snooze on your alarms until the morning. In the UK, things are slightly easier: 8am GMT. These are unlikely to change now we've reached the final episode, but we'll let you know if they do.
