Tony Gilroy Teases The Fate Of Andy Serkis' Kino Loy After Andor Season 1
Spoiler Warning!
This story contains spoilers for Season 1 of "Andor."
The Season 1 finale of "Andor" has left viewers with many dangling questions that won't be answered until the show returns. While the next season is already in production and will most likely address fans’ queries, one mystery that may have been answered is the fate of Kino Loy, played by Andy Serkis, whom the audience first meets during the prison arc.
When asked whether Serkis' Kino survived the harrowing prison break in the "One Way Out" episode, showrunner Tony Gilroy had a simple answer: "We didn't see him die." This response may not have been the definitive answer that fans were hoping for, but it does suggest that viewers might see Kino's return in the future.
Season 2 will cover the period that leads up to the events of "Rogue One," as Gilroy explained, "We're going to be covering four years. Every time we do three episodes in the second half, we jump ahead a year." Since the next season will cover a longer timeframe, Cassian has plenty of opportunities to reunite with Kino somewhere down the line.
