Actor Diego Luna will be reprising his role as Andor. The actor spoke on his return to the Star Wars universe:

Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me. I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey. We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply

Described as a “rousing spy thriller”, the Star Wars Rogue One prequel series will focus on espionage and the execution of dangerous missions in an ends to restore the balance of power from the Empire to the people – who will become collectively known as the Rebellion.

Nothing more than that in terms of release dates, except we know the series will go into production sometime next year.
