Katee Sackhoff Will Reprise Her Role as Bo-Katan Kryze in Season 2 of The Mandalorian

Bo-Katan Kryze History

Bo-Katan (and therefore Sackhoff) made her debut in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. She guest-starred in eight episodes. She served as second in command to Pre Vizsla and a member of the Death Watch. Darth Maul killed the leader of the Death Watch during their struggle for control of Mandalore. Bo-Katan was opposed to an outsider ruling Mandalore, so she sets out to depose him. She finds Ahsoka Tano, a battalion leader of clone troopers during the Seige of Mandalore. Bo-Katan only appeared in two episodes of Star Wars Rebels.
