Kiwi actor Temuera Morrison will reportedly return to screens across the world as he's slated to appear in season two of Disney's The Mandalorian.

Morrison will play bounty hunter Boba Fett, reports Vanity Fair. There's a connection for Morrison, who played Boba's father Jango Fett in the 2002 Star Wars film Attack of the Clones.

In the season one episode of The Mandalorian titled The Gunslinger it was teased that Boba may return when an unknown person with the bounty hunter's trademark approached the apparently lifeless body of Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen).

It's expected the new season will premiere in October.

The news comes just days after it was confirmed Kiwi director Taika Waititi would co-write and direct a new Star Wars film.
