The Obi-Wan Kenobi series could well be entitled to a second season. According to a new report, a season 2 is in the works at Disney+, even if Obi-Wan Kenobi was initially supposed to be a mini-series consisting of 6 episodes.
Obi-Wan Kenobi, one of the most anticipated Star Wars series of this year, was released last week on Disney+. Three episodes are already available on the streaming platform. An episode will be added every Wednesday until June 22. Obi-Wan Kenobi is actually a mini-series consisting of 6 episodes. However, it could be entitled to a second season.
A new report from Making Star Wars claims that Disney and Lucasfilm are reportedly working on a second season. This is not the first time that we have heard of a season 2 of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Indeed, actor Ewan McGregor who plays the Jedi master recently revealed that he is up for a second season. Other people on the production team agree.
Obi-Wan Kenobi’s finale would be changed to prepare for the second season
Since its release, Obi-Wan Kenobi has made the best start to Disney+ original series. Galaxy fans beat record number of hours watched over the opening weekend. The adventures of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi who must watch over young Luke Skywalker 10 years after the events of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith have been very well received by fans.
Even if there are still 3 episodes to discover, the success of Obi-Wan Kenobi is such that the continuation of the story after the 6 episodes would be seriously considered. Making Star Wars even explains that some parts of the Obi-Wan Kenobi finale would be changed to allow for a second season and the return of certain characters. The Making Star Wars report also reveals several spoilers for the episodes and even the finale. These spoilers will not be shared here, however.
Interviewed by Deadline Podcast on June 20, 2022 and when asked about the possibility of a second season being produced, Joby Harold, one of the screenwriters, said he was excited about the whole project. ” I can’t answer any of these questions… But I love Star Wars and having the chance to work on this famous saga will not have changed my love for this universe. “.
In any case, Disney + has not yet formalized the return of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Instead of a second season, it could be from a miniseries with a different name which takes place after the events of the sixth episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Either way, Ewan McGregor would once again be back in his role as Jedi Master.
