Throughout the first three seasons of The Mandalorian, The Armorer became a standout character for many fans due to her commanding presence and Emily Swallow's great performance even with the mask on during the entire time she's playing her so far.

Considering that the retaking of the Mandalore storyline has wrapped by the end of the third season, there have been questions about whether the character will return in the fourth season which will likely go into a new direction.

So far, Lucasfilm remains mum on the details of the fourth season, but fans would like to see the character show up again even for just a one-off appearance.

In a recent interview with The Direct, Emily Swallow, who plays The Armorer in The Mandalorian, was asked whether she will return in the upcoming fourth season of the show.

While she is unsure yet at the moment whether she will reprise the role in the next season, she also expressed her hope that she'll get a chance to continue playing the character.

"I honestly don't know. I really hope so, but I have no specifics about what direction this next season is going off into. I love the Armorer so much, and I love especially this last season that she and [Bo-Katan] sort of defied expectations in working together and I love that," Swallow said.

"I love that both of them were willing to sort of look outside these very strongly held beliefs that they've had to see what was gonna benefit the Mandalorian people as a whole, and to take a chance, to take a big risk, because for either of them, they could have lost the respect of their factions by aligning with the other."

Swallow also hoped that the new season would explore the new Mandalore society now that they have successfully regained their ownership of the planet.

She said, "And I would love to see more of how this new combined Mandalorian society plays out. Of course, I always want to know, like, 'Well what else is the Armorer up to? What does she do when she's not having to now drag her forge to different planets all the time, now that she sort of has a home base?'"

The actress argued that her character's potential return makes sense given her working relationship with Din Djarin.

"And I feel like its been established now that the Armorer is always integral to whatever Din Djarin is doing. I feel like he has to check in with her from time to time, so I feel like we should see her, but I have no certain verification that we will," Swallow added.

A lot of fans would definitely love to see The Armorer show up again even if she won't be part of the main action. Swallow definitely made a good argument on why her character should show up in the new season.

Let's wait and see whether the actress will receive a call from Lucasfilm soon regarding reprising the role in the new season. All we know is that there's a path for them to bring her back if Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni want to.

The first three seasons of The Mandalorian are available to stream on Disney+.
