“The scale of the series is so big. The directors work in blocks of three episodes, so we did four blocks [en la temporada 1] three episodes each,” stated the showrunner.
“We looked at it and said, ‘Wow, that would be really interesting if we went back and used each block to represent a year.’ We’re going to get one year closer with each block,” Gilroy said of Andor’s Season 2 structure. “From a storytelling standpoint, it’s really exciting to be able to work on something that you do on a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and then skip a year.”
