The Mandalorian season 2 will be packed. There are a half dozen already-iconic Star Wars characters expected to appear in the series, and Star Wars: Rebels' Ezra Bridger would have probably been too much...

iZombie actor Rahul Kohli seemingly teased an appearance in the upcoming season of the Disney Plus series, writing on Twitter: "I’ve gotten into that Lothal orphan, force-sensitive, trained by Kanan Jarrus kind of shape. For no particular reason."

That is most definitely referring to Ezra, the main character in the Star Wars: Rebels animated series, and one of the last remaining Jedi, who (spoilers) disappears in the series finale. And guess who teams up in order to go searching for the missing Jedi? None other than Ahsoka Tano and Sabine Wren, two characters who reportedly show up in The Mandalorian season 2.

Giving credence to the not-so-random news was that Kohli has been plugging The Mandalorian on his Twitter account, along with another series we know he's in: The Haunting of Bly Manor

Unfortunately, though, after GamesRadar+ ran the initial story, Kohli let us know that he was simply "goofing around," saying once again that he's not Ezra Bridger.

Star Wars: Rebels creator Dave Filoni has previously confirmed that Ezra and Grand Admiral Thrawn survived the series finale, which involves a pretty sketchy hyperspace jump. Should Ahsoka and Sabine not be The Mandalorian series regulars and potentially have a spin-off series one day, then we finally learn Ezra's fate – and perhaps Disney will give Kohli the call he's been waiting for.

The Mandalorian season 2 is set to debut on Disney Plus on October 30. Returning cast members include Pedro Pascal as The Mandalorian/Din Djarin, Carl Weathers as Greef Karga, Gina Carano as Cara Dune and Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon. 

We know WWE superstar Sasha Banks is in this season as well, and rumours are swirling she'll be playing Sabine Wren. Temeura Morrison is also reportedly reprising his role as Boba Fett, and, while there's no official confirmation, Rosario Dawson just has to be Ahsoka Tano
