Then there’s the biggest twist of all: the finale doesn’t have a post-credit scene. You can watch the end credits to the very end — and you should, a lot of talented people worked on this show!!! — but you won’t find the usual teaser for what’s next. Or even a final wink at the audience or surprise cameo. No Gideon somehow surviving once again or Boba Fett and Fennec Shand planting a flag on their next big business venture. The episode ends with Din and Grogu enjoying some peaceful rest and relaxation in their new house on Nevarro, and that’s all showrunner Jon Favreau wrote! So, here is all about The Mandalorian post-credits scene if you're interested in.
#1. The Mandalorian post-credits scene
Season 3 of The Mandalorian did not include a post-credits scene like season 2 did. After the fight on Mandalore, Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) takes Grogu in as a full-fledged apprentice in accordance with Mandalorian tradition. This will involve traveling around the galaxy to teach Grogu the bounty hunting trade. They have also been given knowledge of the resurgence of Imperial forces by Gideon and have sworn to take on the mission of tracking down Imperial holdouts for the New Republic before heading back to Nevarro to repair IG-11.
That said, there is another moment in the final minutes of the episode that sort of works in the same way a post-credits scene would when it’s revealed that IG-11 has finally returned, this time as Nevarro’s new marshal! It’s a fun comeback that brings closure to a storyline that was first set up in the season 3 premiere, complete with the return of Taika Watiti lending his voice to the former assassin droid turned lawman, while teasing what might be next for the character in season 4. It’s there that their old friend Greef Carga (Carl Weathers) gifts them a cabin to serve as their home base between journeys.
The season ends with Grogu and Din hanging out in their new digs, and for our money this was a great choice. After everything that happened in season 3, the fact that the show didn’t try to sneak in some last minute teaser only makes the finale feel like an even better stopping point to the saga for now.
#2. How is IG back?
Thanks to the droid parts Din found at the New Republic patrol base on Adelphi, the Anzellans are able to patch up IG and bring him back online, but not as the killing machine of his original programming but closer to the nanny droid that Kuiil turned him into. “Greetings, citizens. I am IG-11, your new marshal,” says our beloved droid as he makes his way through the city square introducing himself to the people of Nevarro. “I am here to serve and protect the citizenry. I am at your disposal and serve at your pleasure.”
That’s certainly a drastic change in attitude from the very first time we met IG on Arvala-7 and he was itching to eliminate a defenseless toddler. The fact that Grogu helps bring IG back to life by pointing out the severed IG head on Adelphi makes this bookend so much sweeter. Does this all mean we’ll be seeing IG-11 again in The Mandalorian season 4? Well, considering Din and Grogu now officially call Nevarro home, that seems like a real possibility. And since Din has a new gig freelancing for the New Republic’s Carson Teva, we wouldn’t be surprised if our heroes brought IG along for a mission or two.
