We're introduced to IG-11, a droid that's the same model as IG-88 - one of the bounty hunters seen on Darth Vader's Super Star Destroyer in The Empire Strikes Back. We've also caught a glimpse of an Ugnaught - the porcine species previously seen working as janitors on Cloud City in Empire Strikes Back - named Kuill, who appears to be an ally of the Mandalorian.

And it seems fans can't get enough, with some branding the show a "masterpiece."
