Cara was introduced in The mandalorianFirst season, with dead Pool Actress and former MMA fighter Carano playing the former rebel shock trooper. He quickly became a vital ally for Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) in his quest to protect young Grogu (also known as Baby Yoda) from those who wished to harm him. Cara appeared in The mandalorian Season 2 as well, and while one could argue that the final episodes tied their arc pretty well, there are definitely more stories to tell.

Choosing Lucy Lawless as Cara Dune would sell a LOT of action figures.

If Lucasfilm wishes to keep Cara Dune as a character, they could do a lot worse than casting Lawless. Cara’s presence in The mandalorian season 3 hasn’t been officially confirmed, but the news that Carano nearly scored his Star Wars The spin-off indicates that there is interest in further developing the character. If that’s the case, Lawless would be the perfect choice. Fans are already behind the casting, and Lawless has shown his action skills between Xena Y Ash vs. Evil Dead among other things. Additionally, he already has some ties to Lucasfilm, having provided his voice for two episodes of Star Wars resistance.
As Carano’s firing is still so new, it seems unlikely that Lucasfilm will announce its plans for Cara anytime soon. They are likely still going through things and deciding what is best for the franchise. Reportedly, The mandalorian Season 3 will begin production in April, so there is still time to decide how to handle Cara in the future. It is not certain that they will rephrase it, but if they do, they will hopefully consider Lawless. She has everyone’s support right now, and it would be really amazing to see her and Din team up in season 3.
