The Star Wars spin-off movie Rogue One told the story of the Rebel spies who stole the crucial plans to the Death Star. That was (spoiler alert) the end of Cassian Andor’s story, but the new two-season Disney+ series reveals how it began.

Andor reunites Rogue One writer Tony Gilroy with Diego Luna, who reprises his role as Cassian from the film. Kyle Soller, Stellan Skarsgård, Fiona Shaw, Genevieve O’Reilly, Forest Whitaker, and more star in this expertly written and hard-edged drama, which is refreshingly free of fan service and light on Easter eggs.
