After complimenting Season 3’s writings as “so vast and so daring and so different,” Sackhoff hinted at a second Bo-Katan redemption story after Season 2 by saying, “I’m sure we’ll see more of her.” “What family will she select now that we are aware of the one, she was born into? How does that appear? ” She said.

Sackhoff also praised her partnership with showrunner Jon Favreau and the degree of her contribution to the creation of Bo-Katan in Season 3. “Her current situation and the details that color her experience are some of the things Jon and I concentrate on. Every single day, Jon and [director/executive producer] Rick [Famuyiwa] defer to me, which is a really surreal experience because having these masters ask me how I feel “She spoke up. “It honors the work I’ve put in over the years and the skill. I genuinely know her, and I share in her suffering. I can actually sense what she is feeling.”
