The Mandalorian airs on ABC, Freeform and FX

Star Wars’ The Mandalorian was one of the main TV series that helped launch the Disney+ streaming service, but for those fans who have chosen not to sign up for the platform in the years since its debut, you can catch the first episode later this month view on linear networks. ABC, Freeform and FX will all air the series’ debut episode, “Chapter 1: The Mandalorian,” in the week leading up to the season 3 premiere of The Mandalorian on Disney+. The series premiere of The Mandalorian airs on these networks on February 24 at 8 p.m. ET.

The episode is described: “In the lawless aftermath of the collapse of the Galactic Empire, an armored bounty hunter known only as the Mandalorian takes on a high-paying but cryptic assignment.”

The upcoming season 3 of the series is described: “The Mandalorian’s travels across the Star Wars galaxy continue. Once a lone bounty hunter, Din Djarin has reunited with Grogu. Meanwhile, the New Republic struggles to lead the galaxy away from his dark history. The Mandalorian will encounter old allies and make new enemies as he and Grogu continue their journey together.”

The series stars Pedro Pascal, Katee Sackhoff, Carl Weathers, Amy Sedaris, Emily Swallow and Giancarlo Esposito.

The eight-episode Season 3 directors include Rick Famuyiwa, Rachel Morrison, Lee Isaac Chung, Carl Weathers, Peter Ramsey, and Bryce Dallas Howard. Jon Favreau is the showrunner/head writer and serves as an executive producer along with Dave Filoni, Rick Famuyiwa, Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck are co-executive producers.

In the years since the launch of Disney+, The Mandalorian and “Baby Yoda” in particular have become dominating elements of pop culture that have permeated every corner of everyday life. Despite the improbability of a TV viewer being completely unaware of the concept, it’s a distinct possibility that someone knows about the project but has never seen an episode.

Last year, Lucasfilm provided a similar opportunity to spread the word Star Wars: Andor with network broadcasts. Before that event, however, the three networks aired the first two episodes of the series each night on a different network, and this was done prior to the season one finale. This strategy is likely an attempt to attract audiences who may think that the platform only offers programs aimed at children, while both The Mandalorian And Andor skewing towards more mature viewers.

Watch the first episode of The Mandalorian on ABC, Freeform, and FX on February 24 at 8 p.m. ET. Season 3 of the series will premiere on Disney+ on March 1.
