Let’s start off by saying the following is a RUMOR and we personally have no knowledge of the situation or a way to confirm. But it’s an interesting enough idea to warrant covering. Again, it’s merely a rumor so take it with a grain of salt.
Recently there has been a new rumor swirling about that Gina Carano could be returning for a Fourth season of ‘The Mandalorian’ and the resurrected ‘Ranges of the New Republic’ show on Disney+. Now this rumor comes from the YouTuber Doomcock who is sometimes right and sometimes wrong. But he admits that he can not independently verify what he’s being told.
However, he claims that a couple of sources have independently told him this is indeed the case. According to the YouTuber he has heard the following:
“I wanted to share some exciting news with you. A meeting just took place with Jon (Favreau), Dave (Filoni), the Killer B’s and Gina Carano. It is a done deal. Gina signed the contract to return for season four of ‘The Mandalorian’ and ‘Rangers of the New Republic.’ The contract also allows her to appear in cross-over episodes of other Lucasfilm ‘Star Wars’ properties.”
Yet another source told him:
“Gina will be back as Cara Dune. She will get her own show and it will be on her terms and she could possibly be the highest paid female in Star Wars, second only to the “Ward” aka Brie Larson, that is what we call her. Supposedly this deal was struck just last week. The ink is not dry yet.”
But he does mention that there is a possibility that Carano gave up her Screen Actors Guild (SAG) card and that would stop her from being able to be used in the Disney+ shows. However another source told him that she merely let it lapse and can renew it whenever she wants.
In short, who the heck knows! But it is interesting that the rumor was confirmed by a couple of different sources.
