For those uninitiated, Star Wars Resistance centers on a young pilot named Kazuda "Kaz" Xion (voiced by Christopher Sean), whom the Resistance recruits as a spy, tasking him with a top-secret and incredibly important mission to gain insider information on the First Order.
The animated Star Wars: Resistance series is linking up to crucial events that unfolded in The Force Awakens. The series features appearances from Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma and Anthony Daniels as C-3PO.
Hearing that Star Wars Resistance has already scored a season 2 pick-up is incredibly promising, as the series hasn't yet wrapped up its first season.
The show released a trailer to accompany the announcement.
There's a hologram of General Leia Organa asking Kaz to return and join the Resistance movement.
Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle soars down onto the planet Colossus, where the show takes place.
There's a brief shot of the Starkiller base, a major weapon seen in "Force Awakens".
