‘Andor’ to Air on ABC, FX, Freeform and Hulu Over Thanksgiving

The first two episodes of the ”Star Wars“ spinoff series will be made widely available ahead of the season finale on Disney+

“Andor” will air its first two episodes across Walt Disney Company distribution platforms through the Thanksgiving holiday. Viewings of “Kassa” and “That Would Be Me” will occur during assigned time slots on ABC, FX, Freeform and Hulu.

The special multi-platform programming is in celebration of the spinoff’s upcoming Season 1 finale, which premieres Nov. 23. While the Diego Luna-starring series has been met with critical acclaim, it has struggled to be a breakthrough show for its streaming platform; during the week of Oct. 10, “Andor” was left off the overall list for the Nielsen Top 10 Streaming chart, and only landed at No. 7 on the original streaming programs list (with 405 million minutes viewed that week), behind fellow Disney+ title “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.”

Here are the viewing windows for “Kassa” and “That Would Be Me,” which includes an extended streaming schedule for Hulu:

ABC: Wednesday, Nov. 23, 9-10:30 p.m. ET/PT
FX: Thursday, Nov. 24, 9-10:30 p.m. ET/PT
Freeform: Friday, Nov. 25, 9-10:30 p.m. ET/PT
Hulu: Available from Nov. 23 through Dec. 7

Lucasfilm’s “Andor” is set five years before the events of “Rogue One,” following Cassian Andor (Luna) and his journey toward becoming a rebel hero. Unfolding against the backdrop of a burgeoning rebellion against a ruthless Empire, people and planets are drawn into a conflict that will have galaxy-spanning consequences. “It’s an era filled with danger, deception and intrigue, and one that will test the courage and resolve of a reluctant hero determined to make a difference,” per its logline.

The cast is rounded out by Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, Fiona Shaw, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis. Executive producers are Kathleen Kennedy, Tony Gilroy, Sanne Wohlenberg, Michelle Rejwan and Luna. Gilroy is also the creator and showrunner.
