Adria Arjona will star opposite Diego Luna in the upcoming Rogue One series.
The yet untitled show focuses on Rebel agent Cassian Andor (Luna) prior to the events of the film Rogue One. Described as a spy thriller, the series follows Andor during the early days of the Rebellion against the Empire.
At this time, details about Arjona’s character are unknown.
Arjona recently appeared in Amazon’s adaptation of Good Omens as Anathema Device. She has also starred opposite Star Wars actor John Boyega in Pacific Rim: Uprising.

In addition to Luna, Alan Tudyk will reprise his film role as the droid K-2SO.
Prior to Arjona’s casting, Stellan Skarsgard and Kyle Soller also joined the series. Again, specific details about their roles are being kept under wraps.
Tony Gilroy, who co-wrote the film, will write the pilot episode. He will also direct multiple episodes. Stephen Schiff (The Americans) serves as showrunner.
More Star Wars from Disney+
The Rogue One series is just one of many Star Wars shows in the works from Disney+. In addition to the Cassian Andor-focused prequel, fans can also expect an Obi-Wan series. (We may even get Hayden Christensen himself reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker.)
Another actor who may return to Star Wars for Disney+? Donald Glover. Kessel Run Transmissions reported Glover was in talks to reprise his Solo role as Lando Calrissian.
For now though, the only series up and running is The Mandalorian. Season two should drop sometime this fall.
You can stream the original Star Wars films, as well as the first season of The Mandalorian, on Disney+ now.
