When Obi-Wan Kenobi was being made, the idea was for it to be a six-episode limited series. However, given the success of the season, fans are naturally calling for more adventures. How likely is a second season? According to writer and executive producer Joby Harold, no thought has been put into additional installments…well, not yet anyway.
Obi-Wan Kenobi has been a huge drop for Disney+, becoming the most in-demand show in the world for two weeks straight. It was recently overtaken by Ms. Marvel, another Disney project. All things considered, this has been a pretty good month for Disney+. That said, with a year-round slate of Marvel and Star Wars content, every month is going to be killer for them.
If a TV show is performing this well, it seems only common sense to cash in and create more seasons. At the very least, it provides some food for thought for the writers over at Lucasfilm. Recently, writer Joby Harold weighed in on the topic on the Deadline Podcast. “I’m being asked about it constantly,” Harold said. “I’ve just been thinking about this for so long as a close-ended story that my mind is so focused on this as a sort of limited [series], that I haven’t thought beyond it. But he’s a great character. They’re all amazing characters.”
We don’t know if Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi will get a second season
With this being the Star Wars universe, there’s always a chance we could see Obi-Wan appear in another show. After all, Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and Grogu spent so much time in The Book of Boba Fett that fans started jokingly calling the series The Mandalorian season 2.5.
Even if Obi-Wan Kenobi doesn’t get renewed, it doesn’t sound like Harold is going anywhere. “I love Star Wars, and the experience of working on Star Wars hasn’t changed that in any way,” he said. “It’s only made it a bigger part of my life, and I feel lucky to be a part of it.”
The Obi-Wan Kenobi finale premieres tomorrow, Wednesday, June 22, on Disney+.
