This article is a preview for Andor season 1, episode 9 and contains details of the release date, time, and where to watch online. It may contain spoilers for previous episodes.
Set five years before the events of Rogue One, Disney+’s latest Star Wars original series, Andor, seems to function without the need for heavy-handed pandering and weaponized nostalgia. It’s a relatively grounded, serious, and slow-paced affair about a man finding meaning in a burgeoning rebellion after trying to carve out a hardscrabble existence within corporate authority and Imperial rule.
Here’s everything we know about the latest episode.
Andor season 1, episode 8 recap
- Cassian was imprisoned on Narkina 5, a factory facility where he was sentenced to six years of hard labor.
- Through Syril, Dedra was able to firm up a report about rebel activity that centered Cassian as a person of interest. She began to move on his family and friends back on Ferrix.
- Mon Mothma continued to try and drum up funds for the rebel effort while he husband continued to try and undermine her.
- Luthen met with a returning Saw Gerrera.
Andor season 1, episode 9 release date/time
The latest episode is scheduled to be released on Wednesday, November 2 at 12 am PT, 3 am ET, and 8 am GMT, exclusively on Disney+.
Where to watch Andor online

Is there a trailer?
How many episodes will Andor have?
Andor will have 12 episodes, which is more than usual. It seems like Disney are deliberately trying to tell a longer, more patient story here, so once it has settled in a weekly cadence, it’ll be interesting to see where the whole thing goes.
Who is in the cast?
- Diego Luna as Cassian Andor
Stellan Skarsgård as Luthen Rael
Kyle Soller as Syril Karn
Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma
Adria Arjona as Bix Caleen
Fiona Shaw as Maarva
Expect other faces to occur in either recurring or guest capacities as well, including some Star Wars faithfuls.
Both the title and synopsis of next week’s episode are completely under wraps, but here’s some idle speculation:
- Cassian isn’t going to spend the rest of the season in prison, but the question is whether he engineers a breakout himself or is snatched by any of the various parties currently looking for him.
- I suspect we’ll get more Luthen and Saw next week.
- I suspect Syril will continue to try and make himself useful to the ISB, despite Dedra’s warnings.
