While details about the series are scarce, Variety has a quick synopsis of the series and how it relates to an OG Star Wars villain who has a thing for women in chains.
“In the series, legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett and mercenary Fennec Shand are navigating the Galaxy’s underworld when they return to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate.”
Boba Fett will once again be played by Temuera Morrison with Ming-Na Wen returning as Fennec Shand.
