Currently in the middle of its first season, Disney Channel's Star Wars Resistance has been renewed for a second season, SYFY WIRE has confirmed. The show was created by Dave Filoni, the man behind Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Set before the events of Episode VII: The Force Awakens, Resistance follows a young spy, Kazuda Xiono (Christopher Sean), working for Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac). As part of his mission to gain intel on the First Order, Kaz is sent to work on a starship refueling station (known as Colossus) on the ocean-covered planet Castilon.

A new midseason trailer brings Starkiller Base and General Hux (mainly Domhnall Gleeson's fiery "End-of-the-Republic" speech from TFA) into the mix. Watch it below ...

In addition to Isaac, Gwendoline Christie and Anthony Daniels reprise their onscreen roles of Captain Phasma and C-3PO, respectively. Carolyn Hennesy fills in for the late Carrie Fisher, voicing General Leia Organa. The voice cast also includes Scott Lawrence, Josh Brener, Jim Rash, Donald Faison, Suzie McGrath, Bobby Moynihan, and Elijah Wood.

With 10 episodes left to air, the second half of Season 1 returns this Sunday, January 13, with the episode entitled "Bibo." The next two episodes — "Dangerous Business" and "The Doza Dilemma" — will follow on January 20 and January 27.
