Have you started watching the ongoing Obi-Wan Kenobi show on Disney Plus? The show is lit and it has started to catch fire. At the moment, an unprecedented number of fans are flocking to watch the new series and it has managed to change the thoughts and minds of Disney and Lucasfilm.
Originally, the ongoing Obi-Wan Kenobi show on Disney Plus was supposed to be one of the final acts for Ewan McGregor. The story was pitched as one and done even though the actor had said that he would love to portray the character again.
However, fans seem to be wanting more as they can’t get enough of McGregor’s work as Obi-Wan. With almost two decades of suspense, it’s only natural that the fans would ask for more as the story is far from complete.
So, with the unprecedented number of fans flocking to watch the new series, Will there be another season for the Obi-Wan Kenobi show? Let’s find out in this article.
Will there be Obi-Wan Kenobi Season 2?
At this time there are tons of rumors about this show will get its next season, many fans have started to believe in rumors too but there is still no real confirmed news from the side of Star Wars.
So, we might have to be patient and wait for some time before the officials address the rumors. But you don’t have to worry because there is a high chance that the show will receive another season because Obi-Wan’s storyline is still far from over and he must need another season to fulfill those stories.
In the Star Wars Celebration program, Ewan hinted to the public about the chance of getting next season. Furthermore, Lucasfilm seems to be pushing for a second season due to strong critical reception and unprecedented viewer numbers, according to the sources.
Additionally, it has been revealed that Lucasfilm is in the early stages of Season 2 and they are drafting out the next storyline in a way that doesn’t harm the Star Wars canon. But another question arises as there is no confirmation as to whether the next season of Obi-Wan Kenobi will be a direct continuation of the current season’s story or will it have a completely different story.
In the show, Ewan McGregor has a long way to go before he starts to look like Alec Guinness’ original Obi-Wan. Lucasfilm could benefit a lot with this in mind as they could get a lot of mileage out of the actor in the future.
Disney also seems to be confident that more stories following Obi-Wan Kenobi will happen as per the sources. It seems that they have already made some adjustments to the current limited series in order to allow for further exploration of the character’s story so it is only a matter of time till we get the next season.
Does Ewan McGregor want to be part of the next season of the series?
Ewan McGregor is very much interested to play his next role in Obi-Wan Kenobi Season 2 and he has also hinted some time about the next season of the series.
During an interview with Collider, he said, “The first time I got dressed up as Obi-Wan again, it was a special moment., loved doing it. I loved working with Deborah Chow. I loved working with the new technology. And I thought our scripts were really good.”
Ewan is in love with this series, and he will surely love to get featured in the next season of this show too. As the actor himself is interested to be part of the next season, there is a high chance that there will be next season of the series.
The future of the Obi-Wan Kenobi show
As you might have already known, the only live-action Stars Wars show at the time of writing to have multiple seasons is “The Mandalorian“. Well, that’s because limited-run series will drive more initial viewers and Disney seems to be more interested in limited-run events.
However, we can also see the willingness of Disney to produce numerous seasons because of The Mandalorian’s runaway success. Thus, the fourth season of The Mandalorian has already been announced along with the upcoming MandoVerse event.
As a result, we can also expect Obi-Wan Kenobi to last a few seasons if the show gets constant attention from fans. Ultimately, it all comes down to the demand of the viewers and what Lucasfilm and Ewan McGregor want to do.
