All eyes are now on Disney+ and Lucasfilm after the end of "Obi-Wan Kenobi" Season 1. As the season finale ends on a good note, will there be "Obi-Wan Kenobi" Season 2? Here are the possibilities of it.
There are hints that the "Star Wars" series is not intended to continue for so long. However, as fans have already heard from other shows that are said to be limited, like "Big Little Lies," it looks like the future is bright for "Obi-Wan Kenobi" Season 2.
The show's EP/director Deborah Chow told Entertainment Tonight that they conceived the show as a limited series. It was one big story with a "beginning, middle and end" and they didn't think about what would happen after that.
This just meant that Chow was open about the idea of a second season, later admitting that the show could go forward. "It would only be if there was a real reason for another one," she said.
So, what could it be? Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kenney revealed its future depends on fans. If there was a huge engagement and people wanted to see more of the series, they would surely consider it.
She said they would do so if they felt there was a real reason to do it, though they still had to see things. However, TVLine noted that Disney+ is yet to reveal the first season's specific viewership date. But, it said in May that it was already ranked as its "most-watched" original series after its two-episode premiere, based on hours streamed in an opening weekend.
For starters, the first season ended with Leia (Vivien Lyra Blair) being safely returned home. Reva (Moses Ingram) overcame the Dark Side and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) went back to Tatooine to look after Luke (Grant Feely).
Though it didn't end with any major cliffhanger, Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen) was still on the loose. So, was it enough to have "Obi-Wan Kenobi" Season 2?
Ewan McGregor himself hoped to do another season. He told British GQ he would be happy if he could do one of these shows now and again.
Alternatively, Hayden Christensen also wanted to keep playing his iconic role in the show's second season or another series. Though he understood that "Obi-wan Kenobi" was conceived as a standalone story, he told Radio Times he would love to continue with his character.
He believed there was more to explore and would be excited to do so. That said, he was open to returning to "Obi-Wan Kenobi" Season 2 and reprising his role.
