The Writer’s Guild of America website has shared that the official list of writers for The Mandalorian season 2, which includes Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Rick Famuyiwa. Favreau wrote six of the eight episodes with Filoni having written Chapter 13 and Famuyiwa, who previously co-wrote Chapter 6 in Season 1 with Christopher Yost, writing Chapter 15.
