Carano's firing from the Disney+ Star Wars series over her "abhorrent and unacceptable" social media posts "means her Mandalorian character Cara Dune will either be recast with a new actress or written out of the show completely," says Zack Sharf. "Given that Cara Dune was a supporting character with no major story threads dangling after the season two finale, removing her from the larger Star Wars narrative is not as big of a headache as it sounds. Cara Dune is used rather sparingly in The Mandalorian, not appearing in every episode (she didn’t appear in Season 2 until the fourth episode, for instance) and most often functioning as a sidekick for Mando in episodic adventures. Take her out of any of the Season 2 episodes where she does appear, and the story would barely change at all. Cara’s utilization in The Mandalorian makes her one of the more expendable characters, so writing her out wouldn’t be a challenge and wouldn’t be too jarring."
