The Mandalorian episode 8 release date sees the series go right back on track. After The Mandalorian release schedule underwent a shake-up to accommodate for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, The Mandalorian season finale air date and time is back to normal. Phew. But for those of you who need a refresher: here’s when you can watch The Mandalorian season 8 on Disney Plus, including our complete Mandalorian release schedule.

The Mandalorian episode 8 release date and time

The Mandalorian episode 8 release date is Friday, December 27. Yep, we’re back to Fridays after episode 7 landed on a Wednesday the previous week. As for the season finale release time? There’s little reason to expect it to deviate from its normal set time. So that means The Mandalorian episode 8 will air at midnight Pacific. That’s 3 AM Eastern and, for those of you who are somehow watching in the UK, 8 AM GMT.

What time will new episodes of The Mandalorian release on Disney Plus?

Episode 8 should be here at 3 am but it’s worth knowing going in that there are issues.

Even if you get a Disney Plus error code cropping up, rest assured that the new chapter will arrive shorty after the hour – it’s not always an exact science.
