What Are The Odds Of Getting Obi-Wan Kenobi Season 2?
Spoiler Warning!
This story contains spoilers for the series (season?) finale of "Obi-Wan Kenobi."
As satisfying as the series has been for a lot of fans, it's failed to really capitalize on its own potential for others. However, the flurry of callbacks, Easter eggs, and cameos certainly made "Obi-Wan Kenobi" something to look forward to each week, and overall, the series has at least fulfilled its promise of shedding light on an unexplored (but oft-referenced) chapter in the titular Jedi's story. But can that really be the end?
It should comfort fans to know that both Ewan McGregor and Haden Christensen have said in recent interviews that they’d be more than happy to continue their characters’ adventures in the near future. With the show’s success on Disney+, there’s certainly a chance that "Kenobi" could get a second life on the streamer, but does it make sense for the narrative at large?
A second season could give "Kenobi" a chance to redeem itself and it's not hard to pick out the few characters and storylines ripe for more exploration’ like Reva and the Inquisitors, Quinlan Vos, or the Force-sensitive refugees on Jabiim. Ultimately time will tell, but it's clear that we're living through a true "Star Wars" renaissance.
