It seems that we may not be done just quite yet with the adventures of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The first season of Obi-Wan Kenobi has come to an end, and while it was originally announced as a limited series, it seems another season isn’t off the board. Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said, “Well, frankly, we did set out to do that as a limited series. But I think if there’s huge engagement and people really want more Obi-Wan, we’ll certainly give that consideration because the fans, they speak to us,” she added. “And if we feel like, ‘OK, there’s a real reason to do this; it’s answering the why then,’ then we’ll do it. But we’ll see.”
Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen – who returned as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader – have both expressed interest in continuing the story. “Getting to play these characters again and work with Ewan has been just the coolest thing,” said Christensen. “Ewan is someone that I have a lot of love for and a great amount of respect and admiration for. So, getting to do this with him, it has been huge.”
Christensen is rumored to appear in the upcoming Ahsoka series that will debut on Disney Plus in 2023. All six episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi are available now on Disney Plus.
