The future of the Star Wars franchise might be full of new projects, but Obi-Wan Kenobi Season 2 might not be part of it. During the Star Wars Celebration, many movies and upcoming series shared details about what’s coming next for the Lucasfilm galactic universe. Still, some other projects were absent, like the Ewan McGregor starred show, which might not return after all.
Head of the company, Kathleen Kennedy, chatted with Variety about some of the missing titles from the panels of the event and shared some disappointing news about the Obi-Wan Kenobi series:
“That is not an active development. But I never say never, because there’s always the possibility. That show was so well-received and [director] Deborah Chow did such a spectacular job. Ewan McGregor really wants to do another. Everybody’s all hands on deck with what we’re doing right now, as you can see by what we showed everybody [at the Celebration]. We’ll turn our attention to that again maybe down the road.”
McGregor has shared his interest in returning as the legendary Jedi soon, especially after his emotional comeback in the first season of his individual series, which reunited him with Hayden Christensen. But it’s been months since the show’s release, which kept fans wondering what would happen with it, especially with other projects like Andor being renewed immediately.
