Manny Jacinto & Amandla Stenberg Tease a Jaw-Dropping Finale of 'The Acolyte'

Disney’s most recent Star Wars project, The Acolyte has been on Disney+ since June 4, 2024, and despite all the controversies and review-bombing, the series is still one of the most talked about shows as of the time of writing, as the fans are actively discussing the series and many theories related to its characters.

With the series coming closer to the final episode of the first season, the fans are waiting to see what showrunner Leslye Headland and her cast have in store for us. The series has had its ups and downs, but since Episode 5, it has started gaining a bit of momentum, with fans becoming more interested in the story.

With the finale approaching, the cast and crew members are also talking about, and based on what Manny Jacinto, who plays Qimir, and Amandla Stenberg, who plays the dual main role, it seems that we are in for an amazing finale of The Acolyte!

The information comes from an older interview which has now resurfaced, seeing how the finale is drawing nearer, which makes sense. Episode 8 is going to be titled “Doom,” and while we still don’t really know what is going to happen, Jacinto and Stenberg teased something quite interesting back then:

Amandla Stenberg: Well, for me it would be the finale. So much happens, which is very Leslye Headland-esque. Things that you don’t anticipate, very traumatic things. It all goes down, and I think she’s so great at her format and structure, and in that sense.

Manny Jacinto: Yeah, it was in, I’m assuming it was in maybe the first four that they gave out, that’s literally just the beginning. It’s like the first act… Yeah, a lot more jaws to drop.

The source of these quotes is a video that can be seen on Twitter, and we – of course – have it here for you:

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that a series is saving its best for the finale, and we can only hope that The Acolyte will deliver. As said, the series has had its ups and downs, and there were some good and some bad moments in the whole broadcasting process, but we hope that the finale will really deliver.

In light of everything that has happened, the series needs to be given some respect and we hope that the finale will deliver an ending that will have the fans wanting more. Of course, be sure to keep following us because we will definitely be reporting on it!
