Star Wars fans rejoice! Forget pumpkin spice and trick-or-treating - this month on Disney Plus is all about Baby Yoda. The Mandalorian's breakout star (officially known as The Child) makes his adorable return on Friday, Oct. 30 when the Star Wars spin-off series comes back for Season 2. Star Wars fans have been not-so-patiently waiting for the return and second season of the space western — featuring a lone bounty hunter and his journey to return, guide and protect his young ward to its home — since the debut of Baby Yoda last year. In the words of Werner Herzog, we would like to see the baby.
But while we're waiting for the new season of The Mandalorian, there are plenty of other new original shows and exciting original series on Disney Plus that we have found. TV Guide has figured out exactly what to watch on the Disney Plus streaming service this October to keep us busy.
