Five episodes of the Star Wars series Obi-Wan Kenobi are currently streaming on Disney+, and as the series is closing in on its finale, the fans are wondering if there’s a chance to see Ewan McGregor playing one of his most famous roles again. Hayden Christensen has already been confirmed to return as Darth Vader in the upcoming Ahsoka spin-off series, but what about Obi-Wan?
Disney has made a lot of Marvel and Star Wars fans happy by expanding the content of those franchises to TV series on Disney. which further expanded the story those franchises kicked off long ago. Disney+ has already given several TV shows, but only some of them were renewed for more seasons, while the majority were made as limited series. Deborah Chow, director of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, recently addressed the rumors that the series might return for the second season.
“It’s one big story with a beginning, middle, and end. So I think this story was very much conceived to be its own standalone. I mean, there are of course more stories that you could tell. There’s obviously another 10 years before we get to A New Hope and with a character like Obi-Wan Kenobi, I think even just watching him ride across the sand sometimes is interesting. So, who knows? It’s hard to say right now, but it was not the intention.” — Deborah Chow for RadioTimes.com
From what Chow has told, it seems that the series will only have one season. Of course, you never know with Disney+. There are still some other Disney+ shows, like Marvel’s Moon Knight. Before Obi-Wan Kenobi, Star Wars spawned two live-action series, The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, and while the former will return for Season 3, it seems like the latter will remain at only one season.
Obi-Wan Kenobi can be streamed now on Disney+.
