Obi-Wan Kenobi Season 2? Don’t Hold Your Breath

Natalie Holt Confirmed To Be Scoring Obi-Wan Kenobi Alongside John Williams

We are now enjoying the fruits of what is day two of the Star Wars Celebration taking place in London. Part of the excitement is learning what is the fate of new, current, and past Star Wars series. So far we have heard about the new exciting live-action Ahsoka series that will premiere this August. As well as the upcoming ‘Skeleton Crew’, ‘Tales of the Jedi’, and the currently in-season ‘The Mandalorian’.

But there is one missing from that list that we saw not so long ago, ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’. Will there be a second season for that series?

During Star Wars Celebration on Saturday, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy answered questions about the state of many projects, one of those being ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ via Variety. But the looks of it, we won’t see that anytime soon.

“That is not an active development,” said Kennedy. “But I never say never, because there’s always the possibility. That show was so well-received and [director] Deborah Chow did such a spectacular job. Ewan McGregor really wants to do another. Everybody’s all hands on deck with what we’re doing right now, as you can see by what we showed everybody [at the Celebration]. We’ll turn our attention to that again maybe down the road.”

Saying it was well received may be a bit of a stretch, currently on Rotten Tomatoes, while it has a critic score of 82%, the audience score sits at 63%. This makes it the second lowest of the Disney+ Star Wars series only behind season 2.5 season of ‘The Mandalorian’ which was ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ which sits at an audience score of 55%.

With that in mind and how Disney has been more about cutting content that maybe hasn’t worked too well for them, I wouldn’t think this would be a series that they would continue to push. Especially when they have the ability to tell so many other stories. They are slowly figuring out that you can’t live on nostalgia alone, which for Star Wars fans, in the long run, would be a great thing.
