This isn’t exactly surprising, but it has become evident over the last few days that Star Wars: The Acolyte is set to run for several seasons. This was something I’m guessing most of us suspected anyway. However it could have been a limited series and at this point in production, without official notice, there’s no way to say.
In this case however, I think we may have some official information that’s come out for legal reasons. Deadline have reported on the fact that producer Karyn McCarthy had filed a lawsuit for breach of contract against Lucasfilm. McCarthy claims she was aggressively pursued as a producer for the show. Then when she joined, she was released with no reason after a short amount of time. This McCarthy claims, left her unable to pursue another offer from Apple at the same time.
Now that’s a bit dry for our site to cover I feel. Perhaps I’m wrong and if so let us know below? However there is one piece of information I felt was important. This line was in the details Deadline shared. For any other details on the case itself, feel free to check out the source link above.
“McCarthy accepted Lucasfilm’s offer in part because Lucasfilm had assured her that the story arc of the show, as well as the company’s business plans, called for The Acolyte to run for multiple seasons.”
It was also mentioned elsewhere she could be required to work overseas for ‘several years’ on the show.

As said, this is hardly unexpected, but I think we can finally confirm The Acolyte is not a limited series and will run for several seasons. Star Wars The Acolyte (Season 1) is filming right now in Europe and will continue for a while yet. It is expected that The Acolyte won’t make it’s debut until the later end of 2024. However that all remains to be seen for now.
Well that’s that. Star Wars: The Acolyte is set to run for several seasons according to legal documents. Let’s hope it’s a great show. As always, lets us know what you think in the usual spot below.
