THE MANDALORIAN: WWE Superstar Sasha Banks Reveals Whether She'll Return As Koska Reeves In Season 3

WWE Superstar Sasha Banks impressed fans with her turn as Koska Reeves in The Mandalorian season 2, and the pro wrestler and actress has now revealed whether she'll return as the character in season 3...

The Mandalorian's second season introduced us to some of the past inhabitants of Mandalore, including the enigmatic Koska Reeves. Accompanying Bo-Katan Kryze into battle, she was undeniably badass, though many fans thought WWE Superstar Sasha Banks (Mercedes Varnado) might be taking on the role of a live-action Sabine Wren. 

Koska isn't Sabine, but there's definitely still some real potential for the character. Unfortunately, Banks recently told Bleacher Report that she won't be part of The Mandalorian season 3. 

"First of all, thanks for trying to get that out, but I'm not on the next season," she confirmed. "But it was incredible being on The Mandalorian on Star Wars. To be on a franchise that is so huge and so loved, just look at the reception from fans outside of the WWE Universe. It was the best feeling of all time. The projection of that show was overwhelming. I legit felt like I was in a galaxy so far, far away. I felt like I was on a different planet."

This is disappointing, but it's certainly possible Banks isn't telling the whole truth here, especially as the Disney+ series is so shrouded in secrecy. Her busy WWE schedule might be what put the brakes on Koska coming back, though, and it's not exactly like the character was a major part of The Mandalorian!

Regardless, Banks clearly values that time working on the Star Wars franchise, however brief it may have been. 

"It was something I will always take with me and I took so much of what I learned from acting with them and being with so many great stars to WWE. It really helped my confidence as well when I came back from doing The Mandalorian two years ago," she continued. "It was such a learning curve and something I wasn't expecting, but now I'm in this whole new Hollywood world and it's going amazingly. I'm so excited for the fans, and I can't wait for my fans to see what's next."

We have a feeling that Koska's story isn't finished just yet, and Banks could quite easily reprise the role in a different live-action or animated series given the way this franchise continues to expand.

The Mandalorian is expected to return to Disney+ in 2022. Head over to TheRingReport.com to check out more pro wrestling news from the ComicBookMovie.com team!
