The first season of Obi-Wan Kenobi has ended, and Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, has commented on the possibility of a second season being produced.
Some Star Wars fans are holding out hope that the Star Wars spinoff series Obi-Wan Kenobi will be renewed for a second season now that the first season has ended. It has come to our attention that people in charge of the program that airs on Disney Plus are throwing some light on whether this specific Star Wars narrative will continue with another chapter.
The production of the second season of Obi-Wan Kenobi presents its fair share of challenges, as one would expect. Some people believe that the guy who is finally referred to as “Old Ben” in the original Star Wars trilogy does not have much of a tale to tell about himself.
However, given that he is still at a relatively young age when the events of this series take place, that is obviously not the case. On the other hand, very little information on Lucasfilm’s plans for the streaming series has been provided up to this point.
What do Kennedy and Chow have to say in the extensive ‘Interview’?
Deborah Chow and Kathleen Kennedy recently gave an interview to Entertainment Tonight. They appeared to provide some optimism that even if there was one plan, things might alter for the extremely popular Obi-Wan Kenobi now that this season has ended.
Chow had said that there was never any doubt that the series would be a limited one when it was first conceived. She also said that the season had a “beginning, a middle, and an end,” and they “weren’t thinking beyond that.”
Chow, however, would not completely rule out the possibility of a second season. The film’s director has been quoted as saying there “would have to be a strong cause” for the production of the next part in the series. She did not specify precisely the requirements for a reasonable justification
. Still, the ratings may be at least one of those requirements. Indeed, the program was successful in all of those regards, setting new records for viewership on Disney Plus.
The Final Verdict
The opinion expressed in Chow’s statements was mainly echoed by the producer Kathleen Kennedy. She also said that the idea behind the show has always been to have a limited season but that a continuation of the show could not be entirely out of the question if there is enough demand for it.
It is not out of the question that Disney may continue to investigate this historical period in the Star Wars world from a different point of view. Rumblings have been circulating for a considerable time that a new show centered on Cal Kestis, a character from the computer game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, may be given the go-ahead in the distant future.
The conclusion of the first season of Obi-Wan Kenobi was also written in a manner that leaves open the possibility of the show being renewed for a second season. After the Empire acquired control of the galaxy, there seems to be much to demonstrate Darth Vader’s continued purpose. Still, I won’t divulge exactly what they could be.
On Disney Plus, you may now watch episodes featuring Obi-Wan Kenobi.
